Financial Planning Tip(s)

All About Taxes or the Getting Ready for the Processing of Personal 1040’s

Corrected 1099 Reminder

Just last Friday we reminded of the Corrected 1099 time frames …. and NOT to rush your taxes if you have after tax accounts that generate the all encompassing 1099 Misc and Int Tax Forms ….

With originals due on or around the end of February …. aka NOW – hah The good ole Corrected’s are a few weeks out yet… not to worry we will let you know who those lucky ones are that get a Corrected and a headcount that let’s us know if those early planners/filers may be safe to go forward !

IRS Pointer and J.K. Financial, Inc. Important Reminder too

Also, early in the month here, which may seem like and eternity ago (or not) we highlighted an IRS heads up email about prepping for Taxes AND we added our most important thought, which has come into play multiple times already this season…hence the happy repeat and acknowledgment :

” … We would add, just because you did not receive a tax notice, DOES NOT mean the IRS did not and is looking for the appropriate notation on your tax return (Huge amount of time this occurs with cashing Series EE bonds) … a missing item is an easy automated paper letter audit….and as mentioned here absolutely requires a response …”

Capital Market Comments – Advanced Analysis Series Begins

ODTE’S — Zero Dated to Expire Options – Part Two of our Advanced Analysis Series

Here in this Post we talk about a VERY heavy topic …. ODTE (Zero Dated to Expire Options) their unusual quantities, as well as their possible Capital Market manipulation …. not only that, but this post also is Part 2 of our Multiple part series that we intend to do this year… in addition, here is a screencast video during market hours to help explain our point too…

When “Good” News can be Bad – Fast Economic Reminders

In another reminder like post, here we speak of when “Good” News can be seen as bad due to the FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) attempt to slow the economy…

The good news is from this report lots of jobs and more than expected…. Bad News… Fed may continue to be aggressive in slowing the economy… aka Higher short term rates…

Two year at the time was 4.41% now 4.81% a LARGE move for such a short term of 2 years!

Have a Great Day, Talk to You at the End of March!
