The consequences of not filing your tax return on time

It can be easy to assume that postponing your tax return filing isn’t that serious—particularly if you didn’t earn very much in the previous tax year or you suspect you’ll be due a refund. However, the IRS imposes stiff consequences for late filing for all tax payers, and some of the penalties can add up quickly.

Tax amendments and corrections

Nobody enjoys paperwork. Most people find it boring and tedious. Taxes, however, are also stressful. There are different ways to do them, numerous forms and schedules, and many different ways that a single typo or math error can throw everything off base. Whether doing taxes on paper or using software, there is ample room for error.

When should I itemize my expenses?

You've heard that itemizing your expenses could save you money on your tax return. But you don't want to go to all the trouble of itemizing every deductible expense you accrued over the year only to discover the standard deduction is going to get you a bigger refund.

How do I know which filing status to pick?

Preparing your tax return can be a complicated mix of math and tax-specific jargon that’s difficult to understand. One fundamental question that many tax payers struggle with is the difference between the various filing statuses—and the relative advantages of each. Some people qualify for more than one status, and it’s important to understand how to pick the best status for your circumstances.

What might trigger an audit?

Tax time is here, and it’s a chore that nobody enjoys. If you own your own business it’s especially challenging as you manage business expenses, personal income and various credits and donations. The IRS audits fewer than 1 percent of overall returns, but certain items in your return will make you more likely for a closer review.

Why you should file a tax return even if it’s not required

It’s not mandatory for everyone to file a federal tax return. If your income was below a certain threshold last year, you may not be required to file a return this year either. We all know how tedious and confusing it can be to do your taxes. If you have a free pass to avoid the hassle this year, you should take it, right?

Tax filing tips for new parents

If you just became a parent last year, you may be unfamiliar with how this life change impacts your taxes. The filing process is significantly different after you have kids, and many new parents miss out on important tax breaks.
