If You Need More Time to File Your Taxes [税金]

Tax deadline is approaching. What happens if you can’t get your taxes done by the due date? If you need more time, you can get an automatic six-month extension from the IRS. You don’t have to explain why you’re asking for more time.

提出期限.jpg

Here are important things to know about filing an extension:

1. File on time even if you can’t pay. If you complete your tax return but can’t pay the taxes you owe, do not request an extension. Instead, file your return on time and pay as much as you can. That way you will avoid the late filing penalty, which is higher than the penalty for not paying all of the taxes you owe on time.

2. Extra time to file is not extra time to pay. An extension to file will give you six more months to file your taxes, until Oct. 15. It does not give you extra time to pay your taxes. You still must estimate and pay what you owe by April 15. You will be charged interest on any amount not paid by the deadline. You may also owe a penalty for not paying on time.

3. Use Form 4868. You can also request an extension by mailing a Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return. You must submit this form to the IRS by April 15.

There are six new schedules some taxpayers will file with the new Form 1040 [税金]

The 2018 Form 1040 replaces prior year Forms 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ.

The 2018 Form 1040 uses a building-block approach that allows individuals to file only the schedules they need with their federal tax return.

While commonly used lines on the prior year form are still on the 2018 Form 1040, other lines are now Schedules 1 through 6 and organized by category.

The six new numbered schedules are in addition to the existing schedules, such as Schedule A, Itemized Deductions, or Schedule C, Profit or Loss from Business.

Here’s a guide to help taxpayers determine what schedules they may need to file with the 2018 Form 1040:

“2018年個人所得税申告書類の受け付け開始”について [税金]

米国時間の1月28日(月)よりIRS(米内国歳入庁)よる個人所得税申告書類(Individual Income Tax Return)の受け付けが開始しております。

昨年のクリスマス時期より政府機関の一部閉鎖の影響で1ヵ月以上閉鎖されておりましたIRSへの電話もつながるようになりました。

今回の政府機関の閉鎖解除が1月26日に3週間の期限がついた暫定予算の合意によるものなので、3週間後に再び議会が紛糾した場合にIRSの窓口も閉鎖されるのではないかと心配です。

混乱の多い2018年のタックスシーズンですが、自動延長を選択しない場合の申告期限は4月15日(月)までとなります

New IRS publication helps taxpayers Get Ready for tax reform [税金]

The IRS issued a new publication to help taxpayers learn about tax reform and how it affects their taxes. Taxpayers can access Publication 5307, Tax Reform Basics for Individuals and Families, on IRS.gov/getready.

Publication.jpg

While last year’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act includes tax changes for both individuals and businesses, this publication is specifically geared to individual taxpayers. It breaks down the law in easy-to-understand language. The publication highlights the changes that taxpayers will see on their 2018 federal tax returns they file in 2019.

This new publication provides important information about:
•Increasing the standard deduction
•Suspending personal exemptions
•Increasing the child tax credit
•Adding a new credit for other dependents
•Limiting or discontinuing certain deductions

Taxpayers can also go to IRS.gov/getready to find other information about tax reform. This includes the steps taxpayers can take now to help make filing their taxes smoother next year. Following these steps will also help taxpayers avoid surprises when they file their returns.

Things for extension filers to remember [税金]

Oct. 15 is almost here, and it’s the last day to file for most people who requested an automatic six-month extension for their 2017 tax returns. These taxpayers should remember that they can file any time before Oct. 15 if they have all their required tax documents. As extension filers prepare to file, here are some things they should know:

deadline.jpg


•A refund may be waiting. Anyone due a refund should file as soon as possible to get their money. The sooner someone files, the sooner they’ll get it.

•Here’s what taxpayers should do about a missed deadline. Anyone who did not request an extension by this year’s April 17 deadline should file and pay as soon as possible. This will stop additional interest and penalties from adding up. There is no penalty for filing a late return for people who are due a refund.

•Taxpayers should remember the Oct. 15 Deadline. Taxpayers who aren’t ready to file yet should remember to file by Oct. 15 to avoid a failure-to-file penalty. Taxpayers who owe and can’t pay their balance in full should pay as much as they can to reduce interest and penalties for late payment. They can use the Online Payment Agreement tool to apply for more time to pay or set up an installment agreement. In most cases, the failure-to-file penalty is 10 times more than the failure-to-pay penalty.
