Generally speaking, we at #ITPN would agree. However, that headache won't be so bad given that not ALL deductions need to be itemized. So we can save you the trouble of gathering all those bits and pieces.
What kind of deductions don't need to be itemized? The student loan interest deduction is one, the IRA deduction is another. And then there's the moving expenses deduction. Your form 1040 actually has all of those non-itemized deductions at the very bottom.
You know what that means? You have a deadline to pay taxes, but you can throw money to the Internal Revenue Service AS YOU GO throughout the year. Hence why your employer would send taxes via each paycheck, and at tax time, you either owe a little more extra, break even, or possibly get a refund.
But what happens when you're self-employed? What then?
Expect to keep up with the IRS yourself if you really think you'll owe more than $1K at tax time. You can get the help with deductions and credits, though, if you sign up with #ITPN (especially given the fact that you're self-employed!). You'll get 1099 (W-9) forms, obviously, and you'll be expected to make estimated payments on a quarterly basis — as if you're your own employer, paying those taxes right out of your paycheck every single time.
Sound like a lot of work? No worries. We can help.
#Tax Penalties: Something We at #ITPN Like to Avoid
Just so you know, we understand: you might think there won't be any tax refund in your immediate future despite having some income your way (maybe you're self-employed with no deductions or credits?). So you're hesitant to even file for a tax return for that exact reason. You may even rightfully think you won't be able to pay that tax bill!
We urge you to consider this: the tax penalties for not filing are much worse. Here's why: let's say you end up with a balance that you have to pay. Know that the IRS will work with you if you work with US. Penalties, though? Once you're hit, you're hit. And there's no getting out of it.
Always file your tax return. Because when you do, you've locked our services in for good, making sure your taxes are paid up through collaboration, installments, payments, communication (if they need to be). So sign up today with the Income Tax Planning Network!
You Heard It From #ITPN: You May Not Need to Pay Any Estate or Inheritance Tax
Of course, this wouldn't apply to just anybody, for obvious reasons. #Taxes are a muddled mess when it comes to exemptions, credits, write-offs, and different kinds of taxes you'd HAVE to pay provided you fall under the specific profile — and you may be wealthy enough where estate or inheritance tax becomes something you'd need to keep in mind. Unless….
Your estate may be valued at $5,430,000 or more! If that's the case, say good-bye to the estate tax. To add more awesomeness, six states levy the inheritance tax: Iowa, Maryland, Nebraska, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Two of those states — Pennsylvania and Nebraska — are the only states taxing for transfer of property from an estate to an inheritance.
So, in a nutshell, if you live in four of those six states, and you're quite wealthy, your children are going to be VERY happy with the tax credits when you pass on your property to them.
