October 2022 Individual Due Dates

October packs a punch for taxpayers, particularly those earning tips, managing foreign finances, or facing individual due dates. Mark your calendars and stay ahead of key deadlines to avoid penalties and ensure a smooth year-end financial picture. Here’s a quick rundown of crucial dates to remember:

October 11th

  • Tip Reporting for Employees: Earned at least $20 in tips during September? It’s your deadline to report them to your employer on IRS Form 4070. Don’t delay, as your employer needs this information to withhold FICA and income taxes correctly. Remember, if your regular wages aren’t enough to cover these withholdings, the remaining amount will be reported on your W-2 and should be paid with your tax return.

October 17th

  • Taxpayers with Foreign Financial Interests: Did you receive an extension for reporting your 2021 foreign financial accounts? This is the final date to file Form FinCEN 114 with the Department of Treasury. Ensure timely compliance to avoid potential issues in the future.
  • Individual Tax Returns with Extension: Filed for an automatic 6-month extension on your 2021 income tax return? The clock is ticking! Get your Form 1040 in order and settle any outstanding tax, interest, and penalties by this date. Remember, delaying further might incur additional charges.
  • SEP IRA & Keogh Contributions: Missed your regular contribution deadline for a SEP or Keogh retirement plan for 2021? If you filed for an extension on your tax return with an October 17th due date, you still have a chance to catch up. This is the last day to make contributions for the year through these retirement plans.

Staying Ahead of the Curve

These are just some of the important October tax deadlines. By keeping yourself informed and taking action promptly, you can ensure a smooth tax season and avoid unnecessary stress. Remember, even if you haven’t hit any of these specific deadlines, it’s always wise to review your financial situation and check for any outstanding obligations.
