Doing your taxes is not simple unless you’re excellent with numbers and have a background in accounting or bookkeeping. Others have to figure it out on their own. Fortunately, there is plenty of useful information online to help you manage your taxes.
If you work for a paycheck, you are obliged to file a tax return. In this form, you report how much your earned as well as your expenses. To file your tax return, you need a Form W-2 if you’re a full-time employee (which your employer will give to you) or a 1099-MISC if you’re a freelancer. You can file your taxes manually or electronically which is far more convenient.
E-Filling Your Taxes
To file your taxes electronically, visit the official IRS website and follow their instructions. You can easily prepare your e-file by filling out the form. The software automatically calculates your taxes. You can use Free File Forms or IRS online forms, depending on your total income.
Thanks to this, you will know how much money you owe in taxes or if you’ve overpaid (in which case you will get a refund).
To file your taxes manually, you need to fill out a 1040 form while following the instructions of the IRS. Once you’re done completing the form, you need to send it via mail along with the money you owe.
If you need help doing your taxes, you can use a paid online tax software. They will guide you through the process, help you prepare your tax return and ensure you get the deductions and tax credits you’re entitled to.
