Its that time of year when in another few weeks you should begin to receive your tax documents. You can already start a folder with your charitable deductions, home and automobile property tax reports and other one time items such as buying and selling a house, savings bonds and such.
If you have receipts for work that have not been reimbursed it may be a good time to tally up all those applications and renewals, meals and entertainment and such. Whenever possible write who you are meeting with and the business purpose on the back of each receipt. The residential energy credit has not been renewed for 2014 tax year but you can still get a sales tax exemption on energy star windows and doors.
Keeping good income tax records will keep things timely and avoid the rush and increase your chances for success in 2015 tax planning. Any estimated payments for 2014 should still be made by January 15, 2015.
A new requirement by the IRS means that Taxpayer Identification Numbers (TINs) will have to be hand-entered for all Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs) that will report wages for 2012. If you are confused already, it gets worse. In addition, software packages are not to be used to auto-fill any TINs on W-2s for ITIN filers. The requirement goes on to stipulate the penalties for those companies that fail to comply and is indicative of why most businesses contract for professional tax preparation services in Stamford, CT.
