This year, the IRS has announced the tax deadline for this tax season. You should make sure you have all that you need for your tax filing, including any and all tax deductions or credits which you may be eligible. If you haven’t taken the time to figure out all your taxes yet, make sure you look over your taxes with a licensed accounting professional to help you find the best possible outcome, and if possible, a refund from the IRS.
Tax Season Stimulus Check
Throughout 2021, the stimulus checks from the federal government were circulated to individuals and families most affected by the economic downturn due to the conditions of the Covid 19 pandemic. With lockdowns lifted and cities returning to normal policies, there were no more stimulus checks distributed during 2022. Thus, without stimulus checks being passed out, there won’t be any requirement to check in your tax packet for 2022.
