Filing Your Personal Income Tax Returns
The initial due date for your 2012 personal income tax returns is April 15, 2013 However with a valid extension you have file your Personal Returns as late as October 15, 2013. Please be reminded that an extension to file is not an extension to pay and both the IRS and GA will assess penalties and interest for late payment as both the IRS & GA is a pay as you go system (i.e., generally payments are made as your earn/make money).
Be Sure You do your taxes correctly so you will avoid unnecessary IRS audits, liens, collections, amendments, penalties and interest. The below is a sample letter we might send to a taxpayer to ensure that a proper return is filed reflecting only their lowest legal possible tax:
Got the information for your personal returns and need to know:
Are you going to file jointly? It is almost always better financially to file jointly as that is the lowest tax rate and Married filing separately is the highest.
If you do opt to file married filing separately, who will claim your children, claim your mortgage interest expense and who will claim the real estate taxes on your home.
Please note do not yet have any of the rental property information.
