When Can I File My 2019 Taxes in 2020?

The IRS estimates that it paid out $1.7 billion dollars in invalid refunds in 2016 according to a 2018 report published by the U.S. Government accountability office

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton weighs in on the release of the Special Counsel Mueller report and Congress' call for the release of President Trump's tax returns. The deadline to file tax returns and pay any tax owed is Wednesday, April 15.

No matter who does your taxes, once you sign on the dotted line, you are responsible for them.

Taxpayers can get free help preparing and filing taxes through IRS Free File online or free tax help from trained volunteers at community sites around the country.

You don't have to wait until opening day of the tax-filing season to get your taxes done. The IRS also reminds taxpayers that they don't have to wait until January 27 to start their tax return or contact a reputable tax preparer. According to reporting by ProPublica, the companies blocked those pages from being visible by search engines, which may have steered some inquiring customers onto a track to pay a fee to file.

A long list of recommended improvements: In a separate "Purple Book", the National Taxpayer Advocate listed 58 recommendations for improving the IRS. Starting with the 2020 tax season, participating tax-preparation firms have to use the following standard language: "IRS Free File Program delivered by [company name or product name]". "Given the current crossroads at which the IRS finds itself, it is critical that a permanent National Taxpayer Advocate be appointed as quickly as possible to help ensure the IRS protects taxpayer rights and meets its obligations to taxpayers".

For a hands-on review of the new Razer smartphone controller jump over to the Yanko Design website by following the link below. The company hasn't disclosed any price yet, but we can expect it to fall under $2,000 and $2,500 price bracket.

The report makes note that the clarification in the law (26 U.S.C. 7623 (c)) that whistleblowers can be paid for FBAR violations (undeclared foreign bank accounts) as well as criminal fines has been a key - with $110 million of the $616 million collected based on that clarification of the law. You'll see when your return has been received, when your refund has been approved, and when it's been sent.

The IRS advises you to file electronically.

The IRS says 70 percent of American taxpayers are eligible for Free File.

Filing online and requesting direct deposit is the quickest way to get your federal tax refund, according to the IRS, which issues 90% of refunds with 21 days. At the least, no one should be duped into paying for a product or service that was created to cost nothing.
