We are beginning to get 1099 tax forms, however all of them are not complete for everyone.
With a corrected schedule that lasts over the next few weeks to months, please do not file your return until we give you a greenlight and get past the first corrected 1099’s!
Please reach out to Jen at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to know if your tax form is available as we will be glad to electronically send it to you or upload it to your vault as soon as we have sight of it – please follow the next instructions.
Tax Professional and Tax Software
For those using a tax professional we highly recommend that you get your information to them as soon as possible as this tax season will most certainly be much more complicated due to all the new tax laws. It would be much better to have already been in line with your tax professional and have a few missing documents than to bring all of the information late this year.
We feel certain your tax professionals will appreciate it.
For those using tax software, we are fine with you beginning to put your information into the software, however, we would hold off on filing your tax return as we expect multiple software updates, due once again to the tax law changes!
This tax season will likely have a few curveballs as many documents that we may have used in the past, may not be needed due to the tax law changes, however don’t throw anything away, and be sure and either give it to your tax provider or enter it into your software – let both of them tell you it’s not necessary.
It’s Friday, enjoy your weekend, and thanks so much for reading our posts!
Have a Great “Beginning of Tax Season” Day!
