Tax How To

Need help figuring out how to file your taxes? Let’s start with the basic tax how-tos:

  • File your return on Form 1040 by April 15th at the latest.
  • Your income taxes are based on W2, which will show how much you were paid and how much has been withheld for taxes throughout the year.
  • If you’re self-employed, you’ll receive a 1099 instead
  • You can file your taxes completely online, or by mail

Completing your taxes isn’t always so straightforward, especially if it’s your first time. The filing process can become increasingly complex if you have multiple streams of income, many assets, multiple dependents, or a variety of deductions to itemize.

Working with a tax professional can relieve the stress of trying to figure out how to do taxes and allow you to enjoy the peace of mind that your taxes will be completed quickly and accurately. Whether you’re unsure of how to do your taxes or how to file your taxes, the professionals at Community Tax can help answer any questions.
