A few words from Linda:

Wait to file your tax return until you receive all of your documentation. Some investment companies don’t release tax statements until late February into March. Many statements may need to be viewed and printed online instead of being sent in the mail.

Setting up an account on the IRS website has many benefits. There you can get your exact amount of advanced Child Tax credit and all three Stimulus checks. You will also have access to letters, balances, transcripts and adjusted gross income from a prior year.

Let us know about any life changes. It can determine many factors in properly preparing your return. Did you lose or gain a dependent? Did you get married, divorced or separated? Did your spouse pass away?

By having all tax statements available when you file, it may decrease the need for a costly amendment, IRS letters and delay of tax refunds.
