 7 Tax Extenders That Affect You – Almost all tax returns have at least one of these items, especially the Sales Tax deduction that is big in tax free states, such as here in Florida.  

 

‘Short sales’ home sellers face huge tax bills if breaks aren’t reinstated. Families would have to pay taxes on forgiven mortgage debt as if it were income.  

 

How immigration killed the tax deal – Extender legislation may be lost in the crossfire from the battle over illegal immigrants.

IRS Plans Jan. 30 Tax Season Opening For 1040 Filers

This won’t affect our clients because we normally only prepare a few returns by April 15; but it will sure mess up the big assembly-line chain operations.  Their bread & butter are early filers, desperate for quick refunds.

Typical Tax Season crush for taxpayers?

Posted by taxguru on April 19, 2012

This is a funny clip from a recent episode of Raising Hope, where a small business owner scrambles to get all of his receipts together for his corporate income tax return.  It also includes a reference to how scary taxes are because even ass-kicker Wesley Snipes was thrown into prison by the International Revenue System.

It’s always been an additional pressure during Tax Season to have to move the clock ahead by an hour. It’s not the loss of a billable hour that has been the big problem; but the loss of another hour of sleep during this high pressure time of year.

At least it isn’t as jarring since they moved the Spring Ahead day into March. It used to be a real shock to the system when it happened a week before April 15.
