The 2016 tax season is here!!! We are ready. Are you?
We have noticed over the last number of years that the majority of the organizers printed go unused. We have sent out letters explaining that we will send out paper organizers upon request. We also have a PDF version of the tax organizer for your personal tax returns in you portals. If you need any assistance downloading your organizer from the portal or would like us to send out a paper copy please call Cindy at our office or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some important dates to remember for this tax season so returns may be filed timely are as follows:
1. W-2's and 1099's: Please send your information to us by January 15th, 2016.
2. Form 1120S U.S. Income Tax Return for an S Corporation: Please send your information to our firm by February 20th, 2016 so we can prepare by the March 16th, 2016 due date.
3. Form 1065 U.S. Return of Partnership Income: Please send your information to our firm by March 21st, 2016 so we can prepare by the April 18th, 2016 due date.
4. Form 1040 U.S. Individual Income Tax Return: Please send your information to our firm by March 21st, 2016 so we can prepare by the April 18th, 2016 due date.

The combination of running a business and your life and preparing for tax time can drive some people into a slight panic. But no need to get stressed if you are prepared. Now is the time to start organizing all documents required to file your tax return.
Like the old paraphrased saying goes: In this world, two things are certain—death and taxes. The recent federal tax overhaul changed a lot of rules, so it’s as important as ever to understand your tax obligations, including those on Social Security benefits.
Unfortunately, cyber scammers never take a vacation. In fact, the IRS has issued a warning of a surge in fraudulent emails that bait potential phishing victims with fake tax transcripts. Links within these emails lead recipients to documents containing the well-known malware, Emotet.
