A 30-second ready by Nicholas Scheibner, CFP®: As you prepare to file your 2020 taxes, especially if you are thinking of filing your taxes early this year, keep in mind the following:
- It is important to wait for all of your tax documents to arrive before filing. This is especially true for investment accounts in which 1099’s are received. If you have received “corrected 1099’s” in the past, you may choose not to file early to avoid the potential need for an amended return. Some of these forms come in Late February or March.
- Some investments, such as partnerships or certain energy investments, issue K1’s. If you receive a K1, include the documentation with your tax filings.
- For 2020, you will be asked how much in “Economic Impact Payments” you received. This is the Covid-19 pandemic stimulus payment you might have received from the government. Not everyone was eligible for a stimulus payment.
As always, please reach out to your tax-planning professional for advice for your specific tax situation.
