Divorce or separation may have an effect on taxes

Taxpayers should be aware of tax law changes related to alimony and separation payments. These payments are made after a divorce or separation. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act changed the rules around them, which will affect certain taxpayers when they file their 2019 tax returns next year.

Here are some facts that will help people understand these changes and who they will impact:

The law relates to payments under a divorce or separation agreement. This includes:
Divorce decrees.
Separate maintenance decrees.
Written separation agreements.

In general, the taxpayer who makes payments to a spouse or former spouse can deduct it on their tax return. The taxpayer who receives the payments is required to include it in their income.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2019, alimony or separate maintenance payments are not deductible from the income of the payer spouse, or includable in the income of the receiving spouse, if made under a divorce or separation agreement executed after Dec. 31, 2018.

If an agreement was executed on or before Dec. 31, 2018 and then modified after that date, the new law also applies. The new law applies if the modification does these two things:
It changes the terms of the alimony or separate maintenance payments.
It specifically says that alimony or separate maintenance payments are not deductible by the payer spouse or includable in the income of the receiving spouse.

Agreements executed on or before Dec. 31, 2018 follow the previous rules. If an agreement was modified after that date, the agreement still follows the previous law as long as the modifications don’t do what’s described above.

IMPORTANT IRS ANNOUNCEMENT:

Taxpayers should be on the lookout for new versions of these two scams

With scam artists hard at work all year, taxpayers should be on the lookout for a surge of evolving phishing emails and telephone scams.

Taxpayers should watch for new versions of two tax-related scams. One involves Social Security numbers related to tax issues. The other threatens taxpayers with a tax bill from a fictional government agency. Here are some details about these scams to help taxpayers recognize them:

The SSN scheme

The latest twist includes scammers claiming to be able to suspend or cancel the victim’s Social Security number. This scam is similar to and often associated with the IRS impersonation scam.

It is yet another attempt by con artists to frighten taxpayers into returning robocall voicemails.

Scammers may mention overdue taxes in addition to threatening to cancel the taxpayer’s SSN.
Fake tax agency

This scheme involves a letter threatening an IRS lien or levy.

The scammer mails the letter to the taxpayer.

The lien or levy is based on bogus overdue taxes owed to a non-existent agency.

The fake agency is called the “Bureau of Tax Enforcement.” There is no such agency.

The lien notification scam also likely references the IRS to confuse potential victims into thinking the letter is from a legitimate agency.
Both these schemes show classic signs of being scams. The IRS and its Security Summit partners – the state tax agencies and the tax industry – remind everyone to stay alert to scams that use the IRS or reference taxes. Being alert is especially important in late spring and early summer as tax bills and refunds arrive.

Inquiry minds want to know.

Question: How do you distinguish between a business and a hobby?
Answer: In making the distinction between a hobby or business activity, take into account all facts and circumstances with respect to the activity. A hobby activity is done mainly for recreation or pleasure. No one factor alone is decisive. You must generally consider these factors in determining whether an activity is a business engaged in making a profit:

* Whether you carry on the activity in a businesslike manner and maintain complete and accurate books and records.
* Whether the time and effort you put into the activity indicate you intend to make it profitable.
* Whether you depend on income from the activity for your livelihood.
* Whether your losses are due to circumstances beyond your control (or are normal in the startup phase of your type of business).
* Whether you change your methods of operation in an attempt to improve profitability.
* Whether you or your advisors have the knowledge needed to carry on the activity as a successful business.
* Whether you were successful in making a profit in similar activities in the past.
* Whether the activity makes a profit in some years and how much profit it makes.
* Whether you can expect to make a future profit from the appreciation of the assets used in the activity.

IRS confirms tax filing season to begin January 28

WASHINGTON ― Despite the government shutdown, the Internal Revenue Service today confirmed that it will process tax returns beginning January 28, 2019 and provide refunds to taxpayers as scheduled.
The IRS strongly encourages people to file their tax returns electronically to minimize errors and for faster refunds.
The filing deadline to submit 2018 tax returns is Monday, April 15, 2019 for most taxpayers. Because of the Patriots’ Day holiday on April 15 in Maine and Massachusetts and the Emancipation Day holiday on April 16 in the District of Columbia, taxpayers who live in Maine or Massachusetts have until April 17, 2019 to file their returns. Issue Number: IR-2019-01. #AnytimeTaxService

Protect Your Personal Information

Tax season is the one time of year when nearly every American divulges personal information about his or her financial life to outsiders. The following are some red flags to be aware of this tax season.

1) Beware of “Phishing Tax Scams & Emails”
The IRS will never send you an email requesting personal information. Do not open any attachments or click on any links. This practice is designed to steal your identity.

2) Say “No” to Tax Refund Anticipation Loans (RALs)
A tax refund scam is the RAL. The lender is hoping that you'll need money and be willing to pay a hefty fee so you won't have to wait for it. Even if you do need money, avoid tax refund loans at all costs. The interest rate, plus the filing fee and a same-day processing fee, on tax refund loans can cost hundreds of dollars. You may be saddled with debt if your refund does not pan out.

Filing your returns electronically and requesting that your refund be deposited directly in your bank account – cost you considerably less than going to a lender/loan shark. Also, most refunds are processed in 10–21 days.

3) Find Trusted Assistance
Anytime Tax Service is considered the triple A's of taxes --- Accredited, Accurate, Affordable. Contact us at 703-201-1100 or 301-512-1000. We can assist you in preparing your taxes this year.

4) Do your homework when choosing a tax preparer:
• Look at the professional’s history and credentials. Avoid anyone who says they can get you a larger refund than other preparers or who bases their fee on a percentage of the refund.
• You are responsible for your return. Remember that you are legally responsible for the return that is being filed. Although the preparer bears most of the tax work, if the IRS confirms fraudulent items in your return, you may be liable for additional taxes, interest and possible penalties.

On behalf of the Anytime Tax Service team, we would like to wish you a Happy New Year.

To any individual or taxpayer who attempts to prepare their federal and state taxes on their own, we wish you Godspeed and the best of luck. It will be a challenge no doubt. We will have an open appointment for you at Anytime Tax Service.

IRS: Many EITC, ACTC Refunds Arriving Soon

As the Internal Revenue Service begins releasing refunds for taxpayers who claimed the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Additional Child Tax Credit, the agency reminds them that many of these refunds should arrive in bank accounts or on debit cards this week. That is if they chose direct deposit and there are no other issues with the tax return.

Several factors, including weekends, Presidents Day and the time banks often need to process direct deposits can impact the time it takes taxpayers to receive their refunds. By law, the IRS could not issue refunds before mid-February for tax returns that claim the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit.

The most common question taxpayers have about the status of their refund can easily be answered by using the "Where’s My Refund?" tool on IRS.gov or the IRS2Go mobile app. “Where’s My Refund?” was updated Feb. 17 for the vast majority of early filers who claimed the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Additional Child Tax Credit.

Many factors can affect the timing of a refund after the IRS receives a tax return. Even though the IRS issues most refunds in less than 21 days, it’s possible for refunds to take longer. Taxpayers should keep in mind that “Where’s My Refund?” is updated once daily, usually overnight, so checking more often will not produce different results.

Here are a few important things to know about tax refunds:
• The IRS issues nine out of 10 refunds in less than 21 days.
• IRS customer service representatives cannot provide refund information until 21 days have passed since the return was filed. “Where’s My Refund?” provides the most up-to-date information.
• Taxpayers need their Social Security number, tax filing status (single, married, head of household) and exact amount of the tax refund claimed on the return to use the “Where’s My Refund?” tool. Or they can call 800-829-1954.
• Requesting a transcript will not reveal a tax refund status, despite the social media myth to the contrary.
Some tax returns take longer to process than others for many reasons.

The IRS will contact taxpayers by mail if more information is needed.

REFUND SCAM: IRS warns tax preparers about a new refund scam

Only a few days into the tax-filing season, the IRS is sounding an alarm about a new tax scam. Specifically, it's warning tax preparers to be on guard about the scam, which is aimed at stealing taxpayers' refunds by using data compromised in tax preparers' offices.
The agency said it has already received a number of fake tax returns that had accurate taxpayer names, addresses, Social Security numbers and even bank account information for the victims.
In an unusual twist, some bogus refunds were actually directed to the real taxpayers' bank accounts, the agency said. A criminal, posing as a debt collector, then contacted the taxpayers saying the refunds had been sent in error and the victims should forward the money to the crook.

Because these fake returns contained all of the taxpayer's correct information, down to the right number of dependents, the IRS believes the scam started in tax-preparation offices. The agency assumes that the data was compromised because some preparers were taken in by phishing scams that then loaded malicious software onto their computer systems, making all the taxpayer information that was kept by these preparers vulnerable to theft.
The IRS said it's still in preliminary stages of investigating the con and can't quantify how many people have been affected. But because this type of scam has a way of burgeoning overnight, the agency wanted to immediately warn preparers to secure their computer systems.

"Given the history that we have seen on scams like this, when these start, they tend to proliferate quickly," said IRS spokesman Terry Lemons. "When a scam turns out to be successful, they tend to expand. We wanted to alert tax professionals to be on the lookout."
Unfortunately for consumers -- the ultimate victims of this con -- those who find themselves hit by tax fraud have a far more difficult course than consumers whose credit card accounts have been stolen. In the latter case, consumers have a number of steps they can take to deter criminals from using that stolen information to open up new accounts.

In the former case, the first inkling that a taxpayer would get that they were victimized is when their electronically filed return gets rejected as a duplicate. At that point, in addition to reporting the fraud to the credit bureaus and the Federal Trade Commission, tax fraud victims need to fill out a special IRS form, 14039. The taxpayer's 1040 must then be filed on paper, with the fraud affidavit attached to the front.
How the tax bill will affect the returns of American families? Be prepared that this will dramatically slow your refund. Lemons said the typical tax identity fraud takes roughly four months to investigate and resolve.

Since tax ID theft peaked in 2013, the IRS has taken a host of steps, including forming a security partnership with preparers and software companies, to stamp out tax return fraud. The agency has also launched a pilot program that has added 16-digit identifiers to some employer's W-2 information. The agency hopes this will help it spot and stop identity thieves before they take off with taxpayer refunds.

These efforts have helped cut ID theft reports nearly in half over the past year. "We have stepped up our defenses, and the private sector tax community has worked to strengthen their security too," Lemons said. Still, this newly discovered fraud is ominous and suggests that individual taxpayers should also be on guard.

Make sure that you keep updated security software on your home computer and ask any tax preparer you hire how your data is protected, Lemons suggested. If any of your W-2 forms contain the new 16-digit identifiers, also make sure to include that number on your tax return. That will help the IRS know the return truly came from you, not an identity crook. #AnytimeTaxService

Happy New Year !!!!
As tax season approaches, here are a few things the IRS wants you to remember:
— The IRS will begin accepting tax returns on January 29.
— The filing deadline is April 17, two days later than the traditional April 15 deadline, because April 15 falls on a Sunday and the following Monday is a legal holiday in Washington, D.C.
— Those eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) will not see refunds until at least February 27.
— Employers must provide employees with a W-2 or 1099-MISC by Jan. 31.
— The IRS suggests that taxpayers keep their prior-year tax returns for at least three years for reference in the case of fraud or other errors, however Anytime Tax Service recommends retaining files up to 10 years.
