Aimee & the Ladies at O'Neills are ready to provide 2021 Income Tax Preparation Services with Gusto and Good Humor!
The Congress has not (yet) passed sweeping Income Tax changes. Stay tuned for news if the "Build Back Better Bill" is passed when Congress Re-Convenes, as there could be significant (and retroactive) changes in that Legislation.
However, many rules which were in effect for 2020 Income Tax reporting are no longer in effect for 2021 Income Tax Reporting. And there are new rules for report in 2021.
A few highlights:
Unemployment is 100% TAXABLE - both Federal & State - Form 1099G
Stimulus payments are not taxable but must be reported - Letter 6475
Advance Child Tax Credit Payments are not taxable but must be reported - Letter 6419
Marketplace Health Insurance Premium Credits must be reported - Form 1095A
Increased reporting requirements for CRYTPO CURRENCY transactions
NO Waiver for IRA distributions due to COVID
We encourage you to use the Client Organizer to assist you in preparing your documents for the 2021 Income Tax Preparation service. See the Client Tax Preparation Forms above.
As you will read, there are new information reporting forms and requirements.
