Extended Tax Season Finish Line, New Neat Tracking Site Found … Friday

With an original Mid-March Corporate Tax Deadline, a regular estimated tax (ES 2021) April deadline … a most states extend 1040 to May deadline and then a June Taxes deadline for Texas and a few other states this could have been the longest tax season ever!

Next week marks the final full finish line of this most confusing and marathon like tax filing year. Thank you very much for your collective patience as it was very confusing to all across the country.

Possible New Economic Tracker

Next week we hope to preview another newly found very cool website that can monitor indirectly the economy, this one … unlike our TSA tracker… does not involving airplanes but boats! With a little luck we will get copyright privileges and can show you directly.

Ahhh … but that is next week, today is a Friday heading into an almost summer weekend. As mentioned near Memorial Day, a hope for an Ark …the rain has stopped …it’s still very wet here but slowly drying …some monster mosquitos that can carry small pets away …. But all good!

Have a great Friday a Super Weekend and talk to you next week!

Green Light for those that need to File their Taxes – FBAR Reminder, Tax D Day Reminder

We now have the third corrected 1099’s and we are happy to say it looks like the coast is clear.20170324_010525528_iOS

If you have a refund or are in need of filing quickly, this is your “Green light” to file !

Go for it!

Speaking of Taxes…. Some reminders….

Important Date Reminders

FBAR (Foreign Bank and Financial Asset Requirements) those that have control of assets in another country… the new filing date is April 15th….BUT, if you fail to meet this date, according to this IRS statement, a new extension date for six months is being allowed. There was not an extension in the past and this is a moving target as far as we are concerned. If at all possible, file on time, just to be safe.

Given the above date, the ACTUAL filing date for regular filers in the USA this year is April 18, 2017… several holidays are pushing the normal date out.

Confusing…. yes….

Hey it’s a Friday and we still have plenty of time, but don’t let it sneak up on you !

Cheers !
