Summer-themed tax tips

The Texas heat can be unbearable, but people of all ages look forward to the summer months. There are many fun things to do for families with young folks not in school, the cost of which can often qualify for tax credits or deductions. Parents of older kids also need to remember that those with part-time work or a full-time seasonal job can file a federal tax return to get back money if they are due to get a refund on money withheld on paychecks.

Time to do a paycheck withholdings analysis

The recent tax season is behind us unless the taxpayer decided to file an extension. With a year under our belt with the new tax laws, it is now a perfect time to reevaluate the number of withholdings used and make any changes with employers as soon as possible. This will sidestep tax season surprises (good or bad), or it can ensure that the taxpayer gets a bigger refund next year.

Many would seem to agree with this assessment, and the moving trucks seem to arrive daily, helping grow what was once a college town with the capital to a thriving and economically metropolis.

Important tax refund and payment info

The IRS has taken many steps to modernize the way it processes tax returns and pays its refunds. It all happens much more quickly now than it once did. This is good news for those who are hoping that their refund arrives before their big spring vacation – having extra cash on hand would reduce the costs incurred or enable some nice upgrades. However, waiting for a check in the mail is seemingly exponentially harder than watching grass grow and certainly longer than waiting for a pot to boil.
