As we enter the tax filing season, Gehman Accounting would like to spotlight a couple of key things to watch for this tax season.
Different entities (individuals, corporations, farms, etc.) have various tax filing deadlines. Here are a few to keep in mind:
- January 31, 2022 - Form 1099 Deadline
- March 1, 2022 - Farmer Tax Deadline
- March 15, 2022 - Partnership/S-Corporation Tax Deadline
- April 18, 2022 - Tax Day 2022
The IRS reminds taxpayers that filing electronically with direct deposit rather than filing a paper return will speed up processing time and you may receive your tax refund more quickly.
Because of additional stimulus payments sent out in 2021, the IRS is sending letters to each recipient with the total payout information they have for each taxpayer who benefited from the stimulus programs. These stimulus programs include 1) the Advanced Child Tax Credit and 2) the Third Economic Impact Payment sent out in January 2021. "Both letters include important information that can help people file an accurate 2021 return." [IRS Newsroom] Please keep these letters with your 2021 tax information, as it will aid your tax preparer in filing your tax return accurately.
