"Oh, snap! Tax season is here again!"
That's right folks! It's time to e-file your tax returns, starting January 28, 2019.
Everyone is worried about the government shutdown and how it will affect their tax refunds this filing season. In summary, the IRS will begin accepting tax returns as of January 28th, 2019! Likewise, "The filing deadline to submit 2018 tax returns is Monday, April 15, 2019 for most taxpayers. Because of the Patriots’ Day holiday on April 15 in Maine and Massachusetts and the Emancipation Day holiday on April 16 in the District of Columbia, taxpayers who live in Maine or Massachusetts have until April 17, 2019 to file their returns." (IRS)
Noteworthy, the IRS will be waiving, "...the estimated tax penalty for many taxpayers whose 2018 federal income tax withholding and estimated tax payments fell short of their total tax liability for the year." (IRS). Therefore, if you were one of those individuals that did not adjust your withholding to accommodate the tax changes provoked by the TCJA on December 2017, you're in luck - this year!
Because of the unpredictable nature of the government shutdown, changes could possibly occur. An update will be given should that happen.
