Information About Filing Tax Returns
While we know you’d all like to leave 2020 in your rear view mirror, there is one lingering shadow you may still need to address: your taxes!
Whether you worked a normal year, worked from home, were unemployed, took out business loans, or took on extra side jobs, most everyone has to file tax
returns this year. And it may be a little different for you than in years past.
The IRS (Internal Revenue Service) has a wealth of information on its website to answer all your questions.
A few things to keep in mind this year:
- Tax Day is April 15. All tax forms must be submitted on or before that day unless you seek an extension.
- If you received stimulus checks from the federal government in 2020, they do NOT count as taxable income.
- If you received unemployment benefits in 2020, those DO count as taxable income and you must submit a tax return.
This year, the IRS has created videos in English, Spanish and American sign language to help you file your taxes easily, quickly, securely and for FREE.
