Don’t make the same mistakes twice!
Every year, the early tax season chatter begins. Will there be any changes to the child tax credit this year? I heard I can’t claim my son because he turned 17? Are they still giving $1,000 per child? My son went to college this year, can I still claim him?
As the season matures, the questions change? I received this K-1 from an energy company and don’t understand what all these letters mean? Or we sold a second home, what will the tax implications be? I inherited money from my mom’s estate, will that be taxable as income? Of course it all depends.
You absolutely need to make sure the tax return is done right or else you’ll receive that dreaded IRS letter. And if you do, call me and i can assist you. It’s often not as bad as it appears and sometimes it’s simply not correct and can be easily amended.
Tax laws change every year and can be very confusing. You need to speak with an experienced professional. In the event you are not confident on your own or unhappy with your large and impersonal national preparer, Please contact me.

It is that time of the year again when we begin to gather our documents in preparation for completing our tax returns. Fraudsters and scam artists know this and rest assured, they have been working diligently to figure out ways to obtain our personal identifying information (PII) and access to our financial information.
The first rule to remember is: “The IRS does not send out unsolicited e-mails regarding tax returns, financial information or any personal identifying type of information. This includes any type of electronic communication such as text messages and social media. The IRS won’t ask and won’t discuss any personal tax matters by e-mail. There are recent reports of tax payers receiving an e-mail requesting completion of an “updated version” of a W-2 Form, the form most employees receive reporting their wages and taxes withheld.
The second rule to remember is: If the sender’s address does not end in “.gov” the e-mail is not from the IRS.
The scammers are clever and may even use the IRS logo to make the e-mail look “real.” Some have other signs indicating they are frauds such as misspellings and bad grammar.
Recipients of these e-mails are cautioned against clicking on or opening any attachments as often there are viruses or Malware attached that will infect your computer. The e-mail should be either deleted or forwarded to email@example.com.
The last rule to remember is: If you have questions or need specific information, go to IRS.gov for current information.
