Corrected 1099 Update … Tax Forms Help … SLOA Notice (Clients) — An Ark Friday

Uncle SamWhile only in the first inning of tax season, it is here … and we are moving right along. As such, much of our commentary to the finish line will be tax related as we like to keep you up to date on all things tax savings and anything else related.

Corrected 1099 Update

The first round of Corrected 1099’s has occurred and we have reached out to those affected. Generally the “first is the worst” and rarely do we get a greater number of corrected’s in the rounds to come.

Given our light load of Corrected’s so far, if you really need to file, we will give you a soft Green light to file but would rather you wait until the second is complete — a notification we will give as soon as it occurs !

Hold if you can, but if you cannot, go forth!

Tax Forms Help

Be sure to reach out to us for any forms we are in contact with. We generally have SUPER FAST access and quick turn-around on needed statements.  If our tax professional is in need … we will get it fast so as not to be the holdup.

If you are not sure on what forms you are supposed to have, lost a form, or just do not have the time get them together … reach out – we have you covered, and can send a complete bundle to you! Do not hesitate to ask, that is what we are here for.

If you need us to email someone the information, just send us the request as we do not let go of your coveted information without directives!

Oh .. and of course all of your tax forms are currently in your Own Personal Vault too…

SLOA Notice – Standing Letter of Authority

Recently a notice has been mailed out for all of our collective protection. This notification tells us of any linking of accounts or standing letters to deposit or withdraw funds from an account such as a checking or other related money account.

This is strictly a protective measure and is a notification only. No action is needed. Again for our collective safety.

Noah’s Ark

Entering President’s Day Weekend we were approaching drought territory. Not anymore …. Now we are gathering two of everything … kidding. But is has been raining A LOT.

Enjoy your weekend ! It will be raining here!

Tax and Tax Forms Update, Missing Basis Reminder ….Tax Fraud Update….

While the IRS mandated earlier reporting of W-2’s from employers (End of January versus February) there has been no change on investment related reporting forms.

Tax Form Update

Most but not all 1099’s are now available as of yesterday…. YEAAA … If you have contacted us already, we will be adding your tax form to your personal vault, emailing you a soft copy of your tax form or sending to your tax professional as requested…. glad to help. A paper statement will be snail mailed to everyone even if you only use electronic correspondence for everything.4911abd2-4b9c-408a-a953-d805a2ea9c1a-9907-0000085a4bc97ada_tmp

Reach out to Cathy at cathy@jkfinancialinc.com if you wish to have us send you a soft copy of your form!

Not all 1099’s are complete…. deep breath for those ready to go but without forms, they will be here soon!

Corrected forms have been less prevalent over the last few years, hopefully not jinxing ourselves this time! Even with less corrections, we do recommend holding off on filing your taxes at least until the first correction.

Missing Basis-Non Reported Cost

Most, but not all investments have basis included in your personal 1099. We will be mailing those without basis information an internal report that will make your reporting much easier AND lower your tax burden. We have your basis and it needs to be reported to save us tax dollars.

As a reminder, every investment we have has a basis, DO NOT ALLOW A ZERO TO BE INPUT AS A BASIS, THAT WILL COST US TAX DOLLARS!

Tax Fraud Update

In our small sample size, we are finding that those who have had fraud related issues in prior years, tend to have a higher chance of repeat offenses (Rats…sorry but it is true.) Keep your eyes and ears open for suspicious activity, especially if you have had tax fraud related issues before.

Given the above fact, if you have had fraud related issues with your taxes, go ahead and begin working on your taxes…. we may even want to file before the corrected 1099 comes out. The IRS is moving faster to prevent fraud, we will too !!

Ahhh….today is a Friday …. enjoy your weekend … What a beautiful week we have had here in Texas for February!!!!

Corrected Tax Document Update – Green Light

Internally our second round of corrected tax information has been complete and there was only one lucky family – you know who you are and have been contacted !  As for the rest … looks like we are good to go.

Green Light to File if Refund

Those sitting on a refund, you are good to go. From our perch most financial institutions seem to have completed their updates, corrections and initial filings.

If you are in a pay mode, of course stay on the bench !! We would rather you not wait until April 18th — THE VERY LAST MINUTE — but paying today is not a good option !

Sunny Friday

Raise your hand if you like the sunnier evenings ? Me Me Me !!!

Have a fantastic weekend !

Corrected Tax Forms Update – Willie … On the Road Again – Friday

We are through the first set of corrected tax forms and only a ONE correction (I have already notified the lucky one directly) was made. This usually bodes well for the next round of corrections’ – each round is usually less. We ask those at the gates of filing to hold on just a bit longer… just to be safe!

Go ahead and send/deliver your tax documents to your tax professional or, green light to begin entering the data.

PLEASE HOLD OFF ON ACTUAL FILING — YET !

Travels Continued

And I am …. but headed back home later today!

Have a great Friday and Super weekend!

Oh… planning on a review of do-it-yourself tax software next week…so if you are unsure, hold on — (Psst .. Turbo Tax is a safe bet !)

Tax Forms — Travels — President’s Day

Tax Forms on the way!

Tax forms (1099’s) posted electronically this week and were mailed out in paper form to all as well. Just email Cathy if you want us to send you an email of all the information directly…we will be glad to.

We also sent or added to your vault a Realized Gains and Losses report for basis information that was not reported to the IRS. Tax Guy hit in head

Mandatory basis tracking occurred several years ago and as such in many cases all basis information may be reported on your 1099. We will be sending our form as a catch all for basis, just in case.

Recall frequently there are corrections! We ask you NOT file your taxes just yet, until we get through a few correction cycles !

Travels

Today the travels continue as I am out of the office, but electronically connected.

Presidents Day — Office

Next Monday marks the honoring of President’s day. As such, banks, post offices, capital markets and our office will be closed.

Next week some great information from the events attended …. Ahhh, but that is next week .

Have a Great Weekend!

Green Light … Second 1099 Corrections are done and we are Clear … Friday

Corrected

Great News!

The second round of corrected 1099’s have come and gone and we had none. With three more corrected rounds in the next weeks, it is possible we may have some in the future, however we feel that is highly unlikely, based on prior years experiences.

Go forth and file/complete your taxes!

Holiday Next Week

Next Friday is good Friday. Capital Markets as well as our offices will be closed … giving us a bit of extra time to work on the Newsletter and prepare for the tax rush, as well as spending time with family and friends.

Ahhhh … but that is next week, today is a Friday, heading into a weekend. Do not forget to spend time with those special in your life, if not possible this weekend, make plans to do so next week!

Have a Great Day and a Wonderful Weekend!

First Round of Corrected Tax forms is out … Not many … Hold on Filing yet

CorrectedGood news, the first round of corrected tax forms is hot off the press. Unlike years past, there were very few. We have notified those lucky ones already. So if you are reading this and have not heard from us, so far so good.

Don’t File Yet Though

Hold off on the actual filing as of yet, there will be more corrections, however given the small number we received on the first run, we would be surprised if there are more as the numbers usual dwindle from each run.

Have a Great Day!
