Despite the ongoing government shutdown, tax season is essentially upon us. If not resolved, the shutdown could delay the official start of tax season, as defined by the date the IRS begins accepting and processing tax returns.
But even though the government may allow themselves to ignore their responsibilities, that privilege does not apply to me and you my friends. So in the interest of helping you make sure you timely fulfill your tax filing obligations I call your attention to this list of items to bring to your tax appointment. It’s an oldie but a goody.
Otherwise there is not much more you can do right now. However, you need to be aware that the TCJA (Tax Cuts and Jobs Act) has imposed substantial changes on the tax system. Everything from the look of the tax forms to the way claiming your dependents impacts your refund has changed. Almost everything will be different. So if you are one of those people that just kind of copies everything from last years return onto the current years return, that won’t work this year.
