Traverse City Tax Preparation Examiner unveils when people can file their 2014 taxes in 2015, with information on electronic filing and suggestions on filing times and strategies.
Traverse City, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/30/2015 -- The date has been set by the IRS for filing taxes starting Jan 20. Frank Ellis provides tips for filing tax returns, claiming credits, and using electronic filing. He reveals the IRS changes the date each year but experts predict this year it may be towards the middle or end of January.
TurboTax has accepted tax returns even earlier than that, Ellis notes. These can be stored securely and sent once e-filed returns begin to be accepted by the agency.
The benefits of electronic filing and direct deposit are discussed, such as faster processing. Paper returns take longer the author states. He then goes on to talk about claiming tax credits. Taxpayers must wait until the IRS can process these returns. Such credits include the residential energy credit and general business credits among others.
The article also suggests the IRS will allow many taxpayers to file early in January when W-2 forms become available. Getting the W2 form online saves time and cuts out some extra steps to filing taxes.
The author then turns back to electronic filing which cuts the time and enables taxpayers to receive their refunds in about three weeks. He also highlights TurboTax 2015 for easier processing of federal and state returns.
Additionally, an online tax refund calculator is presented in an embedded video included with the article. This provides even more insight to help know whether one is getting money back, how much this is, or if they have to pay the IRS.
