Individual Tax Preparation
Individual tax preparation remains a dreaded time of year for most individuals. Tax law is constantly changing and evolving with new rules and regulations impacting your individual taxes each year. If you aren’t an income tax preparer, consistently staying up to date on tax law changes can be burdensome, not to mention actually filing your taxes is a tedious and time-consuming task. The good news is that JS Morlu has a full team of certified tax preparers, allowing you to pass the baton off to a trusted expert. Working with our team ensures you are maximizing your tax savings through claiming all eligible deductions and credits and filing all required forms timely and accurately.
Do I Need to File Individual Taxes?
If you have a job that withholds income tax, you should be filing an individual tax return each year. However, the IRS does stipulate that if your gross income is less than the standard deduction, you are not required to file a return. Regardless of the standard deduction filing threshold, you should prepare a return to see if any refund will be issued. This most commonly applies to college and high school students as they will have no taxable income, but taxes were withheld from their pay. In these cases, a full refund of taxes paid in is usually common, making it beneficial to file an individual tax return. In addition, if you have children, the IRS does have refundable tax credits that you can claim, giving you a refund even when no taxes were paid or income was received.
What are the Filing Deadlines?
Individual tax returns are due on April 15th of each year. If April 15th falls on a weekend, the due date will be the following Monday. The quicker you file your taxes, the faster you receive any refunds, however, filing by the April 15th deadline is not attainable for many individuals. Individuals waiting on K-1s from business investments often need to extend their return. The IRS allows for a six-month extension, resulting in a due date of October 15th. Keep in mind that you need to pay in any amount due by April 15th, so don’t push everything off. JS Morlu can assist you with the extension process, giving you preliminary estimates of any tax due.
