The IRS has issued the standard mileage rates for deductible reimbursable miles for 2023:
*65.5 cents for business miles
*22 cents for medical miles
*22 cents for moving miles (active-duty military only)
*14 cents for charitable miles
The rates apply to electric and hybrid vehicles as well as gasoline and diesel-powered vehicles. And, yes - you must be able to provide substantiation upon audit. There are multiple apps available to help with required tracking - including two that are free! https://www.forbes.com/advisor/business/software/best-mileage-tracker-app/

In celebration of the holiday season, our offices will be closed Dec 23 - 27 and Dec 30 - Jan 2. Our best wishes for a wonderful holiday and may the new year bring joy and prosperity your way. From our TMG family to yours, Happy Holidays!

New for 2022 tax returns: Payment apps like Venmo, Paypal or Cash App are now required by law to report to the IRS the amount of their users’ 2022 business transactions if they exceed $600 in a year. This doesn’t mean all payment app transactions totaling $600 in a year will trigger a report to the IRS. The rule only applies to payments received for goods and services - so paying a friend for your share of dinner or sending birthday money will not be included in the report. The companies will send out 1099-K forms in January to inform users of their total taxable income. How do the apps know what to include? Interesting question and one we expect may require significant scrutiny and possibly delay some tax return filings this tax season.

We often look for ways to help those less fortunate than ourselves during the holidays and gifting to charities does come with some tax benefits. In 2021, the IRS temporarily allowed individuals to deduct donations to charities without itemizing - but we go back to the old rules in 2022. You must itemize (Schedule A) in order to claim a deduction on this year's tax return. As you complete your end-of-year gifts, be sure to save those receipts and acknowledgement letters! The substantiation requirements remain the same as always.

It has taken a few days, but big Thanks You's are due to so many people! I am fortunate to be serving as President of the Greater DC Chapter of NAWBO (National Assoc of Women Business Owners) this year and our Holiday Party could not have taken place without the efforts of so many. First National Bank was our host for the evening, and we appreciate their sponsorship and supporting Robyn Craig from the bank who serves on our Board. To our caterer, Natalie Ramos, and photographer, Chip McCrea, we appreciate you helping to make our event memorable. To the Board members who provided amazing raffle prizes and the members who generously purchased tickets, we are so grateful. We were able to donate $700 to Aaliyah in Action - a non-profit organization that comforts and provides women who have experienced perinatal or neonatal loss with self-care packages and bereavement support. Another wonderful example of women supporting women. Want to know more about NAWBO? Let me know - we are looking welcome you in 2023!

We have clients asking us, "Should we buy an electric vehicle prior to the end of the year?" Our answer: Yes! If you can find one that qualifies for the current $7,500 credit. Why? As a result of the Inflation Reduction Act, new rules will take effect on January 1, 2023. The 200,000 vehicle sales limit goes away, the $7,500 credit remains BUT the vehicles must be made in North America and then must meet new battery requirements to get the full credit. Not all manufacturers will be able to do this right away so supply may be limited. There are also new personal income restrictions and vehicle sales price limits beginning in 2023. Consult your tax advisor to be sure you understand whether you qualify for a tax credit - while it may not be the main reason you decide to purchase an electric vehicle, any available tax savings will certainly make the ride more enjoyable!

It isn't unusual for clients to come to us with multiple years of tax return filings outstanding. There are a variety of reasons why this happens, of course, but only one real solution - getting the returns filed. We are here to help you do something about it! Right now, before busy season is upon us, is the perfect time to reach out to your CPA and have them help you with prior year filings. We have the time and the expertise to help put this situation behind you. Let's leave this burden in 2022 and make a fresh start in 2023!

It is hard to believe that 2022 is winding down and we are already looking toward 2023! The IRS has just released information regarding inflation adjustments affecting tax brackets, deductions, credits and more for next year. Highlights: the standard deduction is higher in 2023 as well as income limits pertaining to tax brackets and rates on long term capital gains. Taxpayers can also gift more as the limit on yearly gifts will be $17,000 in 2023. The IRS has published a 28-page document listing all adjustments. You can view it here:https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-drop/rp-22-38.pdf OR you can call your CPA to learn how these changes may affect your personal tax plan. Remember, your CPA is not just here to help you file a tax return for last year's activity; they are also here to help you plan for the next one!

Results of our latest client survey are in! Looking forward to sharing their comments with you. This is from an individual tax client new to our firm this year: "The team at TMG is excellent and very responsive - something lacking with my previous preparer. I have full confidence in their professionalism, integrity and competence". Thank you, James!

10/05/2022

The deadline for individuals who extended their tax returns last April is quickly approaching! The filing due date is Monday, October 17, 2022. An estimated 19 million taxpayers requested an extension to file this year. It is advisable to file electronically, and if you are anticipating a refund, electing for direct deposit. This will help avoid the processing delays that so many have experienced.

If your return has a balance due and you did not pay by April 18th, you may owe penalty and interest with your return. Unfortunately, the interest rate jumped to 6% on October 1 and compounds daily.

If you know of someone who could use help with their 2022 tax return filings, please let us know. We are onboarding clients for next filing season now!

The Internal Revenue Service today reminded individuals and businesses, affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, that they may qualify for late-filing penalty relief if they file their 2019 and 2020 returns by September 30, 2022.

The relief, announced last month, applies to the failure-to-file penalty. The penalty is typically assessed at a rate of 5% per month, up to 25% of the unpaid tax, when a federal income tax return is filed late. This relief applies to forms in both the Form 1040 and 1120 series, as well as others. However, failure-to-pay penalties and interest will still apply.

For anyone who has gotten behind in their tax filings during the pandemic, now is a great time to get caught up!
