Feeling Pressured Because of the April 15 Tax Day Deadline? eSmart Tax Announces New No-Cost Extension Filing of IRS Form 4868 for Taxpayers.

American taxpayers hoped the combination of IRS delays and sequester cuts that impacted IRS resources would push the April 15 deadline back in these tough tax times. To taxpayers’ dismay, however, the IRS has announced that they would hold the line on Tax Day. As a result, this year’s abbreviated tax season only had about 10 weeks between the time e-file opened until the April 15 deadline. This shortened filing window placed taxpayers in an even bigger time crunch to complete their taxes. Fortunately, eSmart Tax has an incredible deal for taxpayers that need extra time to file. For the first time in eSmart Tax history, the online tax preparation company is offering no-cost extension filing for everyone.

The Skinny on IRAs and Tax Deductions

For tax year 2012, contributions up to $5,000 ($6,000 if age 50 or older) to a traditional IRA may be deductible. This money grows tax free until withdrawn, and then the deductible contributions and earnings are taxed. If the money is withdrawn early, it becomes taxable as income, and may also be subject to 10% additional tax.

Rental Property – Tax Benefits and Pitfalls

It’s late.  You can’t sleep.  So, you turn on the TV thinking you’ll watch some re-runs of MASH, or DRAGNET, right?  While channel surfing, you see some guy talking about how YOU, yeah, YOU!! Can make some big money( or dough, or moulah, or $$$$) in real estate without using any of your own money!   “Well,” you say to yourself, “now you’re talking!”  So, you reach for a cold beverage (adult or otherwise), some chips to munch on, and you get all nice and comfy because you are going to be driving a brand new Cadillac, and living in a new house with a swimming pool before the night is over!   At least, that’s what that guru on TV is telling you, right?

Did you forget to file your 2009 tax return?

The IRS is about to keep $917 million that belongs to 984,400 people who have not filed a 2009 tax return.  Those non-filers have until April 15 to claim their refund. If the IRS does not have the 2009 federal tax return by April 15, the Treasury will keep the refund. There are no extensions on the deadline.

Need to File a Return with IRS Form 8863 for Education Credits? Choose eSmart Tax.

Recent critical legislation changes have created obstacles that directly impact the daily lives of many American families.  First, the fiscal cliff debate pushed back tax return processing and caused delays in the release of key tax forms.  As a result, many taxpayers—especially students and families waiting for key credits—are feeling confused about taxes.  The added financial pressure of delayed refunds and sequester cuts continues to push families to the edge of their budgets.  As far as finances and taxes go, these are confusing times.
