We know that everyone reading this blog has already filed their taxes, right? Not everyone? The good news is that the government has given us an extra couple of days by taking a day of. The bad news? Only that today is IT! Might as well just get them done. They aren’t going to go away. At the very least get that extension filed.
Don’t know where to find your forms? Our experience has been that everything you want (and a lot more) can be found at IRS.gov. A simple Google search is my preferred method of finding something in particular.
You still have questions about what is and is not deductible? While it is getting pretty late for this kind of research, you can find a lot of answers on the IRS’s own site. You might also refer back to many of the posts made right here. While we are not CPAs, we try to keep abreast of the laws relevant to our industry. Be sure to consult your tax advisor for specifics.
Too late to find a CPA? Sorry about that, we can’t help you there. We do know there are free programs available on line if your needs are relatively simple, and paid versions for those that don’t quite fit that category. You can also download the needed forms, print them out for completion, and mail them. While many options are available, they won’t do themselves.
And for those of you who have completed your returns: congratulations! Doesn’t it feel good to know that you have done your part? At least that you don’t have to worry about penalties and fines now? And now, if you will excuse us, we need to get busy on our own…
