taxes-646509_1280You've went all year waiting to file your taxes, but now that it's time, you can't remember where you stashed all those receipts you need to provide proof for your fuel expenses.  If this sounds like you, there's no need to fret.  Simply keep these last minute income tax filing tips in mind and you'll not only lessen your stress, but you can also save money on your taxes.

Gather the documents you need

If you're self-employed, you'll need 1099s from your clients.  However, even if you don't get one, you can still report the income.  Simply tell your tax accountant how much your total income was and he can figure your taxes for you.  If you're not self-employed, make sure to bring all of your W2s with you to your tax appointment.  Other important documents to bring include:
  • Out of pocket medical expenses paid
  • Job-related expenses
  • Failure to pay documentation (where clients failed to pay you for the services you provided)
  • Savings and retirement account information

Don't forget student loan expenses

Did you pay interest on a student loan? If so, you need to let your tax accountant know how much interest was paid.  This amount in itself can bring forth huge tax savings.


Want your tax refund fast?  If so, take comfort in knowing that 90 percent of tax filers are going to receive their refunds within 21 days after filing as long as they e-file.  This means if you want your tax refund fast, you need to e-file, too.  All this requires is that you allow the government to deposit your refund into your checking or savings account automatically.  Its as simple as that.
