File Your Taxes as Early as Jan 20th!

By

Unlike this same time last year, when a group of idiot politicians shut the government down, ultimately costing the American taxpayer $24 billion dollars, and delaying tax filing season for weeks – the government will remain open.

Tax Season Opens As Planned

Since tax season will open as planned, that means you can file your personal income tax return as early as January 20th! Both paper and electronic returns will begin being accepted on that date. (It’s a Tuesday!)

Keep in mind, mailing in a paper tax return before January 20th isn’t going to do you any good. Your return will not be processed faster. It will go in a box and won’t be looked at until Tuesday, January 20, 2015.

According to the IRS, the most accurate way to file a tax return and the fastest way to receive a refund is to file electronically.TheBudgetProfessional.com_Picture_of_Uncle_Sam

I’ve seen a couple of the Big tax preparation outfits saturating television with ads, drawing people in right now. I don’t recommend the Big Guys when it comes to tax prep – hire a local company to do your taxes. Ask around, get references, and check the preparer out before you trust them with all of your most important financial secrets and information.

 

Choose your preparer wisely. Your financial health depends on it.

 

Do you usually get a refund or do you end up paying in?

Do you already have your refund spent?
Are you using your refund to catch up on bills or go on vacation?
