With 2019 Tax Filing being delayed, it seems like we just put taxes to bed in many cases and BOOM here we are again !
The good news, is we all have not had time to forget all the forms and filings that usually occur with a full year of rest (Hopefully – haha!)
On another good news note, we are happy to announce ALL of your tax forms will be available the second they are completed on line in each of our personal Vaults – YAA!
Tax Forms Update-
As of last night as this post was coming together, most 1099 R’s (Distribution reporting from Qualified/IRA/Retirement plans) were complete. This makes sense as they are straight forward, any funds withdrawn are reported and that is that…..
The 1099 Misc is a different story. Recall it houses a summary of EVERY taxable investment, interest, dividends, Gains and Losses, and your first born – kidding on the last one – seeing if you are with me!
But given the massive amount of information collected from tons of different parties it’s no surprise that there were only a handful of these available per last nights peek – Was actually surprised there were any!
The majority of them will be out in the next few business days!
But Wait – Don’t grab that electronic 1099 Misc from your Vault, toss it into your Tax Software and hit send, just yet- We ALMOST ALWAYS ask you to hold off until the first corrected statements occur….
For the year 2020 the First corrected 1099 Misc, is February 19, 2021
Certainly it is fine to get started on your taxes either by forwarding your information to your tax professional or entering this information into your software (here is the 1099 Misc Instructions from our Vendor), but again, don’t hit send or let your tax professional hit send until we get past the first corrected statements.
On February 19, if we only have a couple of corrected statements we will let you carry on … but occasionally we have had almost all clients receive corrected’s, in which we keep you in the stable until the second corrected round occurs.
We will keep you updated on all fronts !
It’s a Friday, Have a Good Day and Weekend ! (Short here because long up there!)
