Are you preparing for tax season early this year? Our Miami tax lawyer is here to help.
Scroll down to hear Tax Attorney Rolando Casais, Jr. explain what to do if the IRS has filed a federal tax lien on your property in an effort to collect back taxes.
Being prepared for tax season is one of the best things you can do to avoid legal penalties. By giving yourself plenty of time to get ready, you will not have to worry about missing deadlines or scrambling to submit your tax filings at the last minute.
As a Miami tax lawyer, we strongly recommend that you take this approach to tax preparation. It is easy to do and will save you a lot of stress in the coming months if you are prepped and ready to go. It also helps you to avoid making any large mistakes down the line.
Here are some of the steps you can take to make sure you are ready to file by the April deadline.
Organize Your Documents
Filing your taxes can be a simple process if you have all of the information you need. As a first step, you should make sure that you have all of your documents in one place. You should have:
- Your Social Security card and other personal information
- Information about your income (such as W-2, 1099, or other documentation) or adjustments to your income (such as your 1098-T, IRA contributions, or other documentation)
- Your spouse or dependent’s income information (if applicable)
The documentation that you will need depends on the type of job you have as well as if you are filing for your dependents or not. Our Miami tax lawyer is here to answer any questions you have about your specific situation.
Prepare For Your Tax Return
If you believe that you will be getting money returned to you, you should prepare for how you would like to receive it. You have the option to input your banking information directly in your return, or you can request that a check be sent to your address with the money that is owed to you.
On the other hand, if you think that you will owe money, you should have a plan in place for how and when you intend to pay.
