Your tax return is due April 18. If you have not yet filed and are unsure of how to best handle all the paperwork, contact the tax professionals at ATAX. They've been serving the New York City area as well as customers in Florida, Georgia, and Rhode Island for almost 30 years. They offer great advice and tax preparation services to meet all of your tax needs.
Here are the important steps you need to complete to file your tax return:
- Complete The Form: If you are under age 65 and earned more than $10,300 in 2015, you need to fill out a tax return, which is the IRS 1040 form. You also need to fill it out if you earned less but had taxes withheld from your paycheck.
- Gather Your Paperwork: When filing your tax return, you need to know your numbers. Your employer should have sent you a W-2 or 1099 with all of the information you need to fill in on your tax return. You may also have forms from the bank if you've earned interest.
- File Your Return: Filing means sending in your tax forms to the IRS. You can fill out a paper form, which is available at your local post office or public library, and send it in through the mail. You can also file your tax return electronically over the Internet.
While these steps outline the basic process, taxes can get complicated if you have more than one income source, run your own business, or have added a new family member. Call ATAX in the Bronx or one of the other East Coast locations at (914) 920-5060 for all the help you need to complete your tax return.
