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!!!!

Important Notification on K-1 (Clients) … K-1 No More!

With tax forms arriving in bulk last week and this week, we wanted to remind everyone (clients) about the pesky K-1.

If you are waiting for a K-1 as in years past….Good News !K-1

No Core holding K-1’s This Year

Last tax filing year (2012) marked the final year of a core position with a K-1. The investment was sold and we FINALLY ended our marriage with the annual K-1 tax form wait.

As you may recall it was always late, complicated, and ran through several areas of our tax return. Even with these tax troubles our reason for selling was not bound by this, (we TRY to not let the tax tail wag the dog) but it is gone, and will not be in your core 2013 tax return!

Have a good day !

PS With so many posts last week …. we wanted to take it easier on your in-box this week !

Realized Gains and Loss Tax Report …. RMD Letters … Travel Reminder

Since we have had so many posts this week I will keep this one short and sweet for your reading pleasure !

Realized Gains and Loss Report Complete

All Realized Gains and Loss Reports have either been posted to your Personal Vault or are on their way to your mailbox. Reports were completed and mailed yesterday !Gains and Losses

Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) Notification

Per US Federal Tax rules, investment firms holding Qualified (IRA, SEP, 401k etc) funds at year end December 31 are forced to let you know what your RMD is for the current/following year by January 31 .

As such you will receive notification from ALL firms holding ALL accounts (no matter how many you have) noting your total mandated RMD for that specific account. This is the total RMD mandated for the current year and needs to be withdrawn by the end of the current year.

Whew…sorry that got wordy, my point was to let you know most likely you are receiving automated notices that you have 11 months to complete….. much better.

Travels and Office Schedule

One of my favorite Willie Nelson songs is “On the Road Again” …. and I am …just to let you know.

Also, Monday is Presidents day, with Capital Markets, Banks and Government entities closed, our office will be as well. We are never far from technology … yaya Nerds…

Have a good day!

Tax Forms Coming Soon, But Not Yet … Another Weak Economic Number

It’s tax season, while many forms are coming in the mail, most are not arriving for another two weeks.  Non-Farm Payroll disappoints again.

Tax Forms

For those ready to get rolling on your taxes, forms will be ready after Presidents day on February 18, 2014. We will have an official post of “they are ready” but as always caution those eager to get at the front of the IRS line, not to file too early, as corrected tax forms are the usual in this day of complicated reporting.

Non-Farm Payroll Weak

Not to beat a dead horse, but another slightly weak (113k reported v expected 180k) Non-Farm Payroll number was reported this am. Recall this number measures hiring in the USA, and last months report (December measure) was very weak.

2-7-14 Econoday Non-Farm Payroll

We think this weakness has been caused by the Polar Vortex Winter and is just a pause, not a break, however we will continue to monitor it closely. This key report in January has put a damper on the markets since early 2014.

Next week brings another travel time for me late in the week, but that is next week, and this is a Friday, heading into a weekend.

Have a Good Friday and a Great Weekend!

A Dozen Common Tax Mistakes You Do Not Want to Make!

As we near the end of the tax season, we wanted to point you (click here) to our blog page that highlights our most common found tax mistakes. An important item to note, many of these are forgotten items made by us, the tax payer, not our professionals. There is also a handy link to the tax forms and a good tax estimator page.

Finalization of the big event on April 28th at 2pm is upon us, we will be notifying you shortly of the complete details.

Have a Great Day!

Corrected 1099 Part Two – No Skin On this One

We just received word that another run of corrected 1099’s has been shipped and as we draw closer to the official personal tax filing deadline, we are happy to announce no clients were caught in this one.

We are in contact with our back office for a pre-view look at the next run of corrected 1099’s. If this next run looks clear, we will give the green light to those waiting on the  sidelines. Thanks for your patience, but please continue to hold on filing until we give you the ok.

Have a Great Day and pardon the duplicate posts today, but we wanted to get this information out to you as soon as possible.
