February 22, 2023As per the announcement made by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), January 23rd officially marked the beginning of the 2023 tax season in the United States. Every citizen currently residing inside the country must file their tax returns and pay their taxes according to the income generated over the course of the taxable year and their type of tax identification. If you're behind on your tax planning, there's no time to waste when it comes to securing a successful tax return.
A Closer Look Into the 2023 Tax SeasonThe IRS recently announced the implementation of important changes that will affect the amount you must file and pay, along with the tax credits and benefits taxpayers qualify for. These credits include: child tax credit, earned income tax credit, child and dependent care credit, and other credits that have increased considerably following the Covid-19 pandemic. They will all return to their pre-pandemic values, meaning that credit amounts will go back to the numbers registered back in 2019. With these in mind, we need to go over the maximum amounts that were originally granted for each of these credits:
Frequently Asked Questions for Our Tax PreparersOur chat feature gets many messages from taxpayers, so we will now clarify some of their most pressing questions and doubts.
Can I file my taxes in advance if I have my documents in order?The answer is NO. Every taxpayer needs to file their taxes starting Monday, January 23rd, at 9:00 a.m. EST. The IRS will not accept any documents before that specific date and time.
What's the deadline to file my taxes?The deadline set by the IRS is April 18th, with an extension that expires on October 16th. We need to remind you that asking for an extension does not exempt taxpayers from having to pay their taxes before April 18th. If you want to request an extension, you still need to pay part of the amount corresponding to your taxes. After determining the total amount you're expected to pay, you need to complete your tax payment within the timeframe set for the extension.
I'm an illegal resident, do I still have to file taxes?Yes, any person residing in the same home address for longer than 30 days is obligated to file their taxes, even if this doesn't result in a subsequent payment. Many undocumented immigrants fear the prospect of filing their taxes because they suspect that this will draw the attention of immigration authorities and ultimately lead to deportation. If this sounds familiar, you should know that there's a privacy law that protects the taxpayer's information, regardless of their citizenship status.
How can I file my taxes if I don't have a Social Security number?To file your taxes without a Social Security number, your first need to obtain an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). After obtaining an ITIN, you can start filing your taxes within the timeframe stipulated by the standing tax-related laws.
How long before I obtain my refund?If you file your taxes promptly, you'll also receive your refund on time. After you file your taxes, whether you do it physically or electronically, the IRS will take twenty-one (21) days to validate your information before delivering your refund. There will be no delays as long as you avoid errors or omissions while filing your taxes.
