Late Arriving Tax Form (5498) Reminder, Friday Holiday Weekend, School is Out, Family Travels Next Week …


Form 5498 is headed to some of our mailboxes over the next weeks, here are some of the reasons why:

  • Rollover of a 401k or the like to an IRA – Most frequent
  • Contribution to an IRA
  • Contribution to a SEP

One of the most confusing parts of this form is that even though you may have made a qualified contribution for a prior year i.e. 2020, if you made that contribution in 2021, depending on the type of contribution the Form 5498 MAY show your contribution in year 2021. 

Not to worry, the IRS knows there are frequently a seemingly miss match of years and accounts for this.

Here is the IRS information if you need further clarity.

Hacker(s) gets 100 thousand Tax Returns from IRS…. SCHOOL IS OUT !!!

In a “You cannot make this up moment“, the IRS reported on Tuesday the 26th, a clever hacker(s) managed to get over 100 thousand tax returns.

The hacks were via a request for transcript, much like a bank or mortgage company would do to confirm your filed return was the same as the one you may be showing them.

Most Important Item of the IRS hack

The IRS is going to send a letter to those they believe information was stolen. We will update you as more information is released, but for now be on the watch for a letter.

In this crazy cyberworld, also be on the watch for a fake/hack letter …. I know, you gotta be kidding me…nope !

School is out
