Tax and Money Tip of the Week:
Don’t Wait on Your 1099 or K-1!
February 27, 2013| No. 131 BONUS
In our CPA practice, we find that many clients want to hold all of their tax information until they have received that final Form 1099 or K-1. Yikes! Don’t do that! Some brokerage firms don’t deliver 1099s until as late as March 8th, or amend the original 1099s frequently until March 31st.
We want you to provide us, or your CPA, with all available tax return information as soon as you have it pulled together. Don’t wait until you receive that last form!
This year it is especially important to get your tax information to us, or your CPA, as soon as possible. With the passing of the tax bill occuring so late, the IRS is still working to get many forms finalized. This is causing a tremendous backlog in all CPA firms this year. By getting your information to your CPA in early March, you will have your return in the front of queue and through the tax season hourglass well before the stress of April 15th!
