Still Haven't Filed Your Taxes?
Five Tax Tips for 2014

 

Are you one of the tens of thousands of Americans who haven't filed (or even started) your taxes yet?  With the April 15 tax filing deadline already passed, here's some tax advice for you.

Stop Procrastinating
Resist the temptation to put off your taxes until the IRS starts to come after you.  Any accountant needs time to prepare your return, and may need to request certain documents from you, which takes additional time.  More time usually means more fees and penalties so get started now!


Include All Income
If you had a side job in addition to a regular job, you might have received a Form 1099-MISC. Make sure you include that income when you file your tax return because you may owe additional taxes on it.  If you forget to include it you may be liable for penalties and interest on the unreported income.

Did You Request an Extension?
This year's tax deadline was April 15.  If the clock ran out for you, you could have gotten an automatic six-month extension, bringing the filing date to October 15, 2014.  You should keep in mind however, that if you filed an extension itself it does not give you more time to pay any taxes due.  You will still owe interest on any amount that was not paid by the April deadline, plus a late-payment penalty if you have not paid at least 90 percent of your total tax by that date.

Don't Panic If You Can't Pay
If you can't immediately pay the taxes you owe, there are several alternatives. You can apply for an IRS installment agreement, suggesting your own monthly payment amount and due date, and getting a reduced late-payment penalty rate. You also have various options for charging your balance on a credit card. There is no IRS fee for credit card payments, but processing companies generally charge a convenience fee. Electronic filers with a balance due can file early and authorize the government's financial agent to take the money directly from their checking or savings account on the April due date, with no fee.

Always Sign and Double Check Your Return
The IRS will not process tax returns that aren't signed, so make sure that when you file you sign and date your return. You should also double check your social security number, as well as any electronic payment or direct deposit numbers, and finally, make sure that your filing status is correct.

Remember: If you still have not filed your taxes, get your documents to us as soon as you can, and we'll help you take care of whatever comes up.
