2017 taxes

Did you miss the tax deadline for your 2017 taxes?

Although you’re late, you can still file your late 2017 taxes. However, you won’t be able to e-file your tax return.

Dates to remember

The 2018 tax season ran from January 29, 2018, to October 15, 2018. The official tax deadline was April 17, 2018, due to April 15 falling on a weekend and Emancipation Day following after. The e-file and extension deadline was October 15, 2018; therefore, you are now required to mail your return to the IRS.

Can I still claim a refund?

Where To Find Your Prior Year AGI

“Why should we look to the past in order to prepare for the future? Because there is nowhere else to look.”

Although this is a quote by a historian who probably knew little about filing a tax return, it is oddly relatable when trying to locate a prior year AGI.  Here’s why. In order to find your AGI (otherwise known as adjusted gross income), you’ll need to take a look at the prior year’s tax documents. I’ve pinpointed three easy ways to find your prior year AGI without having to dig too deep into the past. Let’s take a look.

“Something suddenly came up.” Those were the immortal words with which Marcia Brady famously broke off a date. But they could just as easily describe why lots of taxpayers fail to file a return every year – April sneaks up on you and then, well, something suddenly comes up.

And if you’re a procrastinator, and have put off filing your late taxes for a while, it’s not hard to misplace the important tax documents that you need to file. Once that happens, even if you want to file, how can you possibly get right with the IRS?

Never fear. There are many ways to retrieve copies of the necessary tax documents.

Anyone who worked as an employee somewhere will need a copy of their W-2 [Wage and Tax Statement] in order to file. Thankfully employers are required to keep a copy for at least four years. So if you’ve lost yours, you may be able to get a copy from them. (more…)
