You can File 2013 Taxes Late with PriorTax.

If you planned on filing your 2013 taxes by the October 15, 2014 deadline but never got around to it, don’t panic.

You can no longer e-file a 2013 tax return, but you’ll still be able to  file 2013 taxes late with PriorTax. Thanks to the 2013 tax software, you won’t waste hours doing taxes.

File your late 2013 taxes sooner rather than later. The IRS late fees increase by the day.

The longer you wait to file your 2013 taxes, the more you’ll end up handing over to the IRS in late penalties.

You’ll Have To Paper File Your Late Tax Return

As of October 15, the IRS shut down the e-file system to prepare for the upcoming tax season. You missed your chance to electronically file and will need to mail your late taxes.

Luckily, you won’t need to prepare your tax return completely by yourself. PriorTax is one of the only 2013 tax software services available for late tax preparation. (more…)

Who Needs Help to File A Late 2013 Tax Return?

Raise your hand if you still need to file your 2013 tax return. PriorTax is here to help!

Have you been putting off filing your 2013 taxes and still need to gather your 2013 tax forms?

Maybe you haven’t yet filed your 2013 tax return because you’re unsure of how to fill out a 2013 tax form 1040.

Whatever the case may be, we understand that completing a 2013 tax return may seem overwhelming. However, as much of a headache taxes may appear to be, it’s best to get your 2013 tax return out of the way sooner rather than later.

The good news is that PriorTax makes completing a 2013 tax return easy. In fact,  while other online tax services no longer offer 2013 tax software, you can prepare your 2013 taxes online with PriorTax!

Before, getting started, here’s a few 2013 tax return tips to keep in mind.

 #1: Late fees increase as time passes.

If you’re getting a refund, there’s no need to freak out. You won’t face late fees for filing late. However, if you have tax due on your 2013 taxes, then the longer wait to file and pay your tax bill, the worse the penalties become.

There are two types of late penalties; a late-filing penalty and a late-payment penalty. Here’s what you need to know about each:

  • Late-filing Penalty: 5% of the additional taxes owed amount for every month (or fraction) your return is late, with a maximum penalty of 25%. Keep in mind, if you file more than 60 days after the due date, then you’ll be fined at the very least, a minimum penalty of $135.
  • Late-payment Penalty: 0.5% (1/2 of 1%) of the additional tax owed amount for every month (or fraction) your tax remains unpaid, up to a maximum of 25%. For any month that you receive both a late-payment and late-filing penalty, then the 0.5% late-payment penalty is waived.

#2: File your return ASAP, even if you can’t pay your total tax bill.

The late-filing penalty can be 10 times higher than the late-payment penalty, so it’s best to file your return as soon as you can, even if you can’t pay your tax bill right away.

Not to mention, the IRS is willing to work with you to set up a payment plan to pay your tax due. You can call the IRS directly at 1-800-829-1040.

 #3: You have until April 15, 2017 to collect your 2013 refund.

If you’re expecting to receive a refund from your 2013 taxes, you should file as soon as possible to receive the money you’re entitled to. There’s a three year IRS statute of limitations, meaning after April 15, 2017, you won’t be able to collect your 2013 refund.

 #4: Use 2013 online tax preparation to file your tax return.

Taking on the task of completing a tax return yourself will cost you time and aggravation while hiring an accountant to do it for you will cost you a fortune. Save your time and money by entering your tax information on PriorTax and we will do the hard work for you.

If you have questions along the way, you’ll be able to call, chat or email the PriorTax team!

 #5: Don’t forget to mail your 2013 tax return to the IRS.

Whether you use an online tax service or complete the tax forms yourself, you’ll need to paper file your 2013 taxes to the IRS. Unfortunately, as of October 15th, you’re no longer able to e-file (electronically file) your 2013 taxes.

That means, you’ll need to print, sign and mail your 2013 tax return to the IRS. Keep in mind that you will also need to print, sign and mail your prepared state tax return to the appropriate state revenue department.

Don’t wait any longer! File your 2013 taxes today with PriorTax.

Whatever you do, don’t wait any longer to file your 2013 tax return. Your late penalties add up the longer you wait or you’re missing out on a refund that could be in your pocket instead of sitting with the IRS!

To get started on your late 2013 tax return, create an account on PriorTax. In no time, you’ll have your 2013 taxes finally done with!

Filing a late 2013 Tax Return? Get it done sooner rather than later!

Did you forget to file your 2013 tax return? If so, you’re officially filing late (as of April 16, 2014) and will face late penalties.

In fact, the 2014 tax season ended on October 15, 2014. That means, filers can no longer e-file a 2013 tax return. Not only that, but those who requested an extension on a 2013 return and missed the October 15th deadline will face late penalties and fees.

Late Penalties

If you have tax due, IRS late penalties and fees increase by the day. The means the longer you wait to file, the more you’ll end up handing over to the IRS.

However, if your expecting a refund then you won’t have to worry about paying late penalties. You have until April 15, 2017 to collect your 2013 tax refund. After that, the three year statute of limitations will end and you’ll no longer be able to collect your refund money.

Wondering what your late fee will look like? Your specific situation will determine which late penalties you’ll face. Below, find the circumstance which describes your filing status best; 

You’re filing late

  • If you have tax due and didn’t file by the tax deadline,  then you’ll face a failure-to-file penalty. For each month (or portion of each month) your taxes are left unpaid, the penalty is 5% of your tax due amount. The maximum penalty is 25%.

How to Claim Home Office Deduction on 2013 Taxes

Posted by admin on March 11, 2014

Have a home-based business? In the past, claiming a home office deduction was time consuming, annoying and complicated. Not anymore!

Thanks to the new IRS home office deduction, you can easily deduct up to $1,500 on your 2013 tax return when filing your home based business taxes. If you need to file taxes for prior years or for 2013 taxes, PriorTax has made claiming deductions simple for each tax year dating back to 2005.

How Much Can I Deduct for the 2013 Home Office Deduction?

In previous years, millions of taxpayers claimed home business tax deductions. In fact, according to the IRS, roughly $10 billion of home office deductions were claimed by 3.3 million filers for 2011. Annually, a cumulative 1.6 million unnecessary hours were spent on the paperwork, record keeping, etc. associated with claiming a home office deduction.

To help small business owners save time, the IRS decided to incorporate an easier option for claiming home office costs. Starting this year, the IRS incorporated an easy-to-calculate home office deduction. That means, on your 2013 tax return, you can deduct $5 for each square foot of your home office, up to 300 square feet.

Have a home office of 150 square feet? You’re home office deduction will be $750. Is your home office a spacious 600 feet? Unfortunately, your will be capped at $1500. (more…)
