As tax season now heads into its final stretch, I am sure there is a feeling of relief for many of you who have finished the ordeal. And for those of you who have not, well, we discussed extensions in this space last week, you might want to check that out.
Beyond that, we are just working diligently, head-down here for a bit until we reach the end of tax season and get a redemptive breath next week.
That wonderful mid-April moment feels like such an endpoint, and it is one that we will very much enjoy here. At the same time, though, this feels like a good time to remind people that some things do not end with the conclusion of tax season.
The IRS recently finished up its yearly roundup of the Dirty Dozen tax scams. We have talked about some of these here in the past (including a recent deeper look at Employee Retention Credit claims), so I won’t go into any of them here. But I did want to provide this link to the agency’s roundup so that those who are interested in staying on top of these things can see the rest of their information.
Scams do tend to amp up a bit at this time of year, because it is when tax issues (and worries) can be on more people’s minds. It’s important to always retain a healthy amount of skepticism, though, and we will try to keep you updated on any big new scams that come up …
… once tax season ends.
