updates for this tax season

What to remember for the 2023 tax season:

There have been several changes that can affect your 2022 taxes, these are just a few of the things you should keep in mind for this tax season.

Make sure you have all your documents.

Gather all your documents and make sure you have everything you need to prepare your taxes smoothly.

Your refund.

The IRS suggests to file electronically and choose direct deposit in order to speed up your refund. The IRS says most taxpayers should receive their refund within 21 days of when they file electronically, if they choose direct deposit and there are no issues with their tax return.

However, you should not rely on the timing of your refund if you need to make a major purchase or pay a bill.

Refunds that include the Earned Income Tax Credit or Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) will not be received BEFORE mid-February.

The IRS expects most EITC/ACTC related refunds to be available to taxpayers by February 28 if they choose direct deposit and there are no issues with their return.

Want to check where your refund is?

You should have received IRS Notice 1444 for the first Economic Impact Payment, and we are mailing Notice 1444-B for the second Economic Impact Payment.  Refer to them when completing your 2020 tax return. If eligible for the Recovery Rebate Credit, you will use the information from these letters to determine the amounts to include on the Recovery Rebate Credit Worksheet or in your tax preparation software to help you calculate your credit amount.

You can still file for 2022 even if you have other tax years pending.

If you need to file for 2021 or any year before 2022, the IRS encourages you to still file as this will not delay the processing of your 2022 taxes.
