THURSDAY TAX TIDBITS

Tax Tip: Start Planning Ahead!

It is never too early to start thinking about the upcoming tax season. Don't procrastinate and be prepared for the tax reform changes that have been implemented this year. Under the Trump Administration, there have been several tax changes that may impact you or your business. Here are some changes that may impact you:


Tax Reform: Business Impact
There are many business considerations, including the corporate tax rate, limitations on net interest expense, full expensing of business assets, changes to net operating loss deductions, limitation of like-kind exchanges, limitation on deductibility of FDIC premiums, corporate alternative minimum tax, rules for recognition of income, changes to business tax credit, the modified limit on excessive compensation, and the modified deduction for meals and elimination of entertainment expenses. Not being able to claim the same expenses as before may lead to higher taxes!
Tax Reform: Individual Impact
Individuals will have changes to their ordinary income tax rates, the QBI deduction, the ACA mandate, their exemptions and deductions, limitation on losses, estate and generation-skipping transfer taxes, and many other items to consider. Receive the best refund you can get by planning ahead and preparing your personal financials!

THURSDAY TAX TIDBITS

What is the Dark Web? As a tax accountant, I see and witness many clients falling victim to identity theft. Because of this, I make it my responsibility to bring awareness to the issue as much as I can. Recently, I came across an AARP article discussing what the Dark Web is. I found the article to be interesting and believe it is something of value to my blog readers. The intelligence and skill behind hacking are so advanced with today's technology; it is scary and difficult to know how to protect yourself from it. I encourage you to read AARP's article and share with friends and family. For more questions, our accountants at Cunningham Tax Help have the resources that can help you and your situation.  We are open Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM; contact us by email or phone at: thetaxlady4u@gmail.com or 253.581.1461 AARP Article:  https://www.aarp.org/money/scams-fraud/info-2018/what-is-the-dark-web.html Follow me!

Stimulus Check Information

Customers who use tax preparation services such as H&R Block, TurboTax and Jackson Hewitt complained on Twitter and to The Post that they didn’t get their stimulus payments Wednesday. Up to 21 million tax filers could be affected, said consumer law expert Vijay Raghavan, because the IRS does not have these people’s direct deposit information on file if they received an advance on their tax refund from these companies or had the fee for tax preparation taken out of their tax refund. The reason is that tax preparation companies received these people’s tax refunds first, deducted their fees and then distributed the remaining refunds to the customers. Because of that, the IRS had a “temporary bank account” on file that the tax preparer created for the 2019 tax season, Raghavan said.
