Initial Tax Return ThoughtsUncle Sam

We are very happy to announce that the first few tax returns (1040’s) have come through, and they look good (refunds or not paying as much as in years past!)

We hope we are not jinxing ourselves by announcing this so early but wanted to share in the excitement!

There will be some disappointments we are certain, but so far so good!

Friday….

Send the Sun if you can …. Rainy here!

Have a Great “Good Tax News” Friday!

1099 Update – Corrected Update – Reminder, a Paper Copy is being mailed UNLESS you specifically turned it off – Holiday Weekend !

Those that follow us know we had a fun conference last week and pretty much burned the candle at both ends… We look forward to bringing you more soon!

Being the last of the four in my gang to NOT get the winter sore throat or flu… and after bragging about not getting sick AT ALL the last four years, those three fingers pointing back at myself came home to roost… GIANT head ache Saturday followed by sandpaper in my throat Monday morning… on the down hill side now….

Corrected 1099 Update1099 sho

Yesterday we sent a blast email out to all of the lucky ones who will be receiving a corrected 1099 printed and mailed one week from today …

If you did not receive the email, so far you are in the clear….

EVERYONE will receive a paper copy of their 1099 – even if you receive electronic copies of everything else – unless you specifically turned your tax copies off – no one we know of has done this and this is the one item we do not recommend you turn off unless you REALLY want to!

Holiday Weekend

Today is Friday, heading into a Presidents Day Weekend – you know the drill … banks, capital markets and those buildings holding our little ones hostage during the day will be closed on Monday – mandating our offices are closed as well… all good, again!

Have a Great “Presidents Day Weekend” Friday!

It’s that time of year again, Tax Season – Tax forms update and important information concerning those using a tax professional as well as Tax software – Friday

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 jen@jkfinancialinc.com  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 taxes control-1027103_1280

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!

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

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 !)
