Welcome fall! The weather is getting a bit chillier, and the sweatshirts are coming out. Just a few more weeks before the streets are overrun with ghosts and goblins looking for candy!
The IRS has been catching up on the backlog of returns needing review. This means that you may have received a letter in the mail. The most likely reason for an adjustment to your refund/taxes due is inaccurate reporting of the Economic Impact (stimulus) payments. In the event that you receive a letter, please verify that the information you provided us is correct, then give the tax team a call. The IRS is looking to verify the following payments:
- Spring of 2020 – up to $1,200 per taxpayer/spouse and $500 for each child under 17
- January of 2021 – up to $600 per person, including dependents up to 17 years of age
With the holidays right around the corner, please keep in mind that everyone is allowed a deduction of cash charitable donations (up to $600 married filing jointly, $300 all other filing statuses), whether or not they itemize their deductions. Keep track of your cash donations and report them to us with your tax paperwork at the end of the year.
