2020 Tax Year Tips and Recovery Rebate Credit
The 2020 Tax Year is here!
Here are few tips to get you started
• Most income is taxable, so gather your income documents, such as Forms W-2 from employers, Forms 1099 from banks and other payers, records of virtual currencies or income from the gig economy.
• If you received an Economic Impact Payment, you should’ve also received EIP Notice 1444. This notice will be helpful to have when you prepare your 2020 federal tax return.
• Review information from your most recently filed tax return through your account information online.
Notify the IRS if your address changes and notify the Social Security Administration of a legal name change.
Remember, most income is taxable. This includes:
• unemployment income,
• refund interest,
• income from the gig economy, and
• virtual currencies.
