Tax season wraps up, IRS scams increase

Tax season wraps up, IRS scams increase

Be careful with Roth conversions: If your tax bracket is dropping, this year could be an excellent time to convert your traditional IRA into a Roth, according to Ed Slott, CPA and IRA expert.

The Lamesa post office has no plans to remain open later than usual on Tuesday, a spokesperson told the Lamesa Press-Reporter on Friday.

Free File Alliance is a nonprofit coalition that provides free electronic tax services for people with an adjusted gross income of $66,000 or less, between the ages of 17-50, active duty military, or qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit. The post office is closed on Saturday and Sunday. In fact, the average refund for a return filed in 2017 for the 2016 tax year was $2,895.

"Taxes are not one of the more pleasant things that people like to do if they think they're going to owe, so they just put off an untasteful or unpleasant task", Cauble said. The longer you wait to file, the longer it will take to get your tax refund.

The most popular planned use of tax refunds, coming in at 43%, is adding the money to their savings.

Germany expressed "serious evidence" of use of chemical weapons in Syria
Israel said the attack sent an important signal to the "axis of evil" of Iran, Syria and the militant group Hezbollah. President Donald Trump about the most effective response to the alleged chlorine gas attack.

Then there's "tax relief scams": Watch for deceptive advertisements claiming to reduce a person's tax liability greatly. "You should file your tax return on time each year, even if you're not able to pay all the taxes you owe by the due date".

If you really can't get your tax return done, seek an extension.

ADOR encourages taxpayers to file electronically and to use direct deposit for refunds because it is faster and more secure.

Those planning to mail their returns need to make certain they're turned in the mailbox at the post office - the one outside or the one in the lobby - by 5 p.m. The result? Itemizing might not be so rewarding next time you file. If you do not pay your tax bill in full, the IRS will calculate penalties and interest on your outstanding balance. Mark Jaeger, director of tax development at TaxAct, said that some taxpayers are shareholders or partners in a business and are still waiting to receive their Schedule K-1 form. And filing earlier in the season gives you time to more carefully prepare your returns and avoid errors.
