Common Questions About Individual Tax Preparation

Q: What do I need for my taxes?
arrow

You’ll need to know your social security number and the social security number of your spouse and any dependents. The forms needed for taxes and filing include the W-2 forms from all the employers you worked for during the tax year and any 1099 Forms if you earned more than $600 in contract work. You will need to gather any information on:

  • Investment income
  • Income from local and state tax refunds from the tax year
  • Business income
  • Unemployment income
  • Rental property income
  • Social security benefits
  • Any other miscellaneous income.

You will also need any information for income adjustments (including homebuyer tax credit, mortgage interest, IRA contributions, student loan interest, and more). Make sure to gather information for any credits and deductions (including medical expenses, childcare costs, education costs, job and moving expenses, and more). If you want to have your tax refund directly deposited into your bank account, you’ll also need your bank’s account and routing number.

Q: What are your tips for filing taxes?

Here are some great income tax tips:

  • In preparing for tax season, look over your tax returns from the previous year to look for any entries that will be similar and identify any fields that may be very different, especially if you had a big life event occur.
  • Know whether you need to file and what your filing status is (single, married filing jointly, etc.)
  • Make sure you have all the tax preparation documents you need to prepare your tax return.
  • Figure out which expenses you can and cannot deduct.
  • Avoid making silly mistakes by checking over your entries a few times with a careful eye.
  • If you live in a state with a separate income tax return, don’t forget to file it.
  • Report all your income, down to the cent.
  • Do not fall prey to tax scammers who may call you pretending to be the IRS.
  • File before the deadline to avoid any penalties or unnecessary interest.
  • If you find yourself confused or uncertain of what you’re doing when preparing your tax return, know that there are tax professionals like the ones at Tax Defense Network who can use their years of experience to help you file your taxes correctly and efficiently.
