IRS will begin accepting tax returns January 29, 2018. To avoid delays please gather your tax information and contact us so we can begin to prepare your tax return as soon as possible, and transmit your return the minute IRS allows. This year the deadline for filing your taxes is April 17th.
Beginning in 2017, a new law approved by Congress requires the IRS to hold refunds on tax returns claiming the EITC or the ACTC. This year the IRS must hold the entire refund — even the portion not associated with the EITC and ACTC — until at least Feb. 27.
Earned Income Credit, the IRS is urging victims of last year’s hurricanes, especially those who lived in areas affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, to see if they qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).
For these taxpayers, whose income dropped in 2017, can choose to figure the credit using their 2016 earned income rather than their 2017 earned income.
When you sit with one of our preparers, we will go over your 2016 earned income and your 2017 earned income to get you the highest credit possible.
No appointment is required for you to sit with a preparer, but an appointment is recommended to assure you get the preparer you want and reduce your wait time. In order for us to do your taxes, we request you bring with you the following: Tax Appointment Checklist
Health insurance was required by all individuals in 2017. Please visit healthcare.gov for more information. If your employer provided health insurance or you purchased it on your own you may receive a Form 1095-B or 1095-C. If you obtained health insurance through the Marketplace you should receive form 1095-A. If you received a credit to reduce your health insurance premium, we MUST have form 1095-A in order to complete your tax return. Please bring insurance cards for all individuals claimed on your return.
If you or any members of your household did not have health insurance at any time during the year and you have not already received an exemption from the shared responsibility penalty, please visit healthcare.gov/fees-exemptions/exemptions-from-the-fee/ or call 1-800-318-2596 as soon as possible to see if you might qualify for exemption. Applying for hardship exemption prior to filing your tax return could speed up the release of any refund you are due.
