2019 Individual Tax Returns are due in 5 months and 26 days.

I have made it through another filing season!

Most people think that April 15th is the end of the tax filing season. Actually, the official end of the filing season for 2018 income tax returns is October 15th.

Over the next two and a half months, I will be taking continuing education classes, upgrading computer hardware and software, helping clients with 2019 tax projections, and other projects.

Also, I will start getting ready to file 2019 income tax returns.

Do you have kids in daycare?

Now that the kids are back in school, let’s take a look at some possible tax benefits relating to various school expenses.

If you and your spouse are both working (or actively looking for work), then expenses paid for childcare may qualify for tax benefits. Qualified childcare expenses include payments to individuals, businesses, or organizations that offer childcare services. These expenses are paid for children under age 13 and.
There are a couple of possible tax benefits from these expenses:

  • Pretax Exclusion (up to $5,000) – is done through an employer pretax dependent care program. Money is withheld before taxes from an employees pay and then the employee is reimbursed with this money for daycare expenses.
  • Tax Credit (up to $2,100) – is claimed on Form 2441 and offsets, dollar for dollar, a taxpayer’s tax but is not refundable if the credit exceeds the tax.

If you have any questions about childcare expenses, please feel free to [Contact Me].
