* Tax Payers whose ITIN is expiring and needs to file a Tax Return in 2019 must submit a Renewal Application.

* ITINs that are affected are the ones with the middle digits 73,74,75, 76, 77, 81 or 82. ( For Example: 9NN-73-NNNN) needs to be renewed even if the Tax Payer has used it in the last 3 Years. 

*ITINS with middle digits of 70,71,72,78,79 or 80 have previously expired. Tax Payers with these ITINs can still renew at anytime.

* Acting Now to renew ITIN Numbers will help Taxpayers avoid delays, that could affect their Tax Filing and Refunds in 2019.

W-2 and Form 1099 Form Tax Report Deadline for 2018.

Posted on December 18, 2017 at 7:15 PM Comments comments (5)


W-2 Form; 1099 Form Filing.

As the Year is coming to an end and Tax Season is drawing closer, it is important to remember The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015 that was passed by Congress in 2015, which became effective last year. We had published a Detailed Article - https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/new-w-2-deadline-2017-business-owners-employers-take-note/

With this New Act, Employers and Small Businesses have January 31 Filing Deadline to submit Forms W-2 and W-3 to the Social Security Administration (Whether you file using Paper Forms or electronically). This New Date also applies to certain Forms 1099-MISC reporting Non-Employee Compensation such as Payments to Independent Contractors.

As a Result of this, the filing deadline for 2017 W-2s and 1099 forms (including Form 1099-MISC) is January 31, 2018. The deadline for providing W-2 forms to employees and 1099-MISC forms to Independent Contractors for 2017 has not changed. This deadline is still January 31, 2018. 

Note to Employers: It is important that Employers become adequately prepared to complete the Year-End Tasks. This means:

  • Ensuring that All Independent Contractors fill out a Correct and Updated Form W-9.
  • Verifying Accuracy of Employee Information.
  • Reporting/Submitting Any Year-End Adjustments as soon as possible.
  • Reviewing Year-End Totals for any Discrepancies.

Please remember, that Extension of Time to file these Forms is no longer automatic. You can only request for One 30- Day Extension and this extension is NOT AUTOMATIC. You will have to submit a complete application on Form 8809, Application for Extension of Time to File Information Returns. This Form should be completed as soon as you notice that as Extension is necessary, but no later than JANUARY 31.

This Extension does not affect extensions of Time to furnish Forms W-2 and Forms 1099 to your Employees and Independent Contractors.
There are penalties for Failure to file these Returns or Furnish Correct Statements and these Penalties are not palatable. 
 
The Penalty amounts shown below apply for filings due after December 31, 2017:

  •  $50/Return – If you file within 30 Days of the Due Date.
  •  $100/Return – If you file more than 30 days after the Due Date but by  August 1.
  •  $260/Return – If you file after August 1, do not file corrections or do not file Required Forms.

 
The IRS urges Tax Payers to still plan to file their Returns as they normally would do, but prepare to exercise some patience, as we have noticed that these changes have brought some delays in getting Tax Refunds. The Refund Delay is an added way to help the IRS combat Tax Fraud by beefing up its effort to authenticate Tax Payer Filings.

 At Rosyan Bookkeeping Services, We are committed to helping you with your W-2s, W-3s and 1099 Filings, as well as furnishing you with helpful information regarding your Tax Filings. Let us know how we can help you.

Tax Season is still On........ We have few more days to go; If you are a Calendar Year Partnership or an LLC with more than one member, you must file a Partnership Return, Form 1065 as soon as possible, the Due Date is March 15th 2017. 

This same Deadline applies to Calendar Year S Corporations ( Where Shareholders are taxed for Profits), you must file your Form 1120S by March 15th 2017. These Forms were previously due on the same date as the Owner's Form 1040, but from this Year 2017, the Date was marked up.

However For C Corporations (This is where Shareholders are taxed separately from the Business-; Subject to Double Taxation); Your 2016 Form 1120 is not due until April 18th 2017.

If you are not ready to file yet and know that you cannot meet the Due Date. You will have to file for an extension as soon as possible. But Remember you will have 6 months, up till September 15th 2017 to file the 2016 Returns. You would not want to pay heavy Penalties for not doing this.

However For Individuals and Sole Proprietors, Your Form 1040 is not due until April 18th 2017. 
You have to act fast and ensure that your Accounting Records and Books are updated,so that you will not miss any Tax Deduction.
