Please make your plans accordingly. You should bring in your information as soon as you have all of it so we can go ahead and process it. It will be finished but we can not send it in until Jan 31st. It will at least speed things up.


Give Withholding and Payments a Check-up to Avoid a Tax Surprise

Some people are surprised to learn they’re due a large federal income tax refund when they file their taxes. Others are surprised that they owe more taxes than they expected. When this happens, it’s a good idea to check your federal tax withholding or payments. Doing so now can help avoid a tax surprise when you file your 2013 tax return next year.

Here are some tips to help you bring the tax you pay during the year closer to what you’ll actually owe.

Wages and Income Tax Withholding
•New Job. Your employer will ask you to complete a Form W-4, Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate. Complete it accurately to figure the amount of federal income tax to withhold from your paychecks.
•Life Event. Change your Form W-4 when certain life events take place. A change in marital status, birth of a child, getting or losing a job, or purchasing a home, for example, can all change the amount of taxes you owe. You can typically submit a new Form W–4 anytime.
•IRS Withholding Calculator. ( This handy online tool will help you figure the correct amount of tax to withhold based on your situation. If a change is necessary, the tool will help you complete a new Form W-4.


Remember if you filed an extension it is due October 15! We are taking appointments and of course walk-ins are always welcomed!

All returns that were held for energy credits and passive losses have been filed and accepted.


"Filers of Forms 4562 and 8863 can start sending in their returns to IRS. The Service has reprogrammed its computers to account for late changes that Congress made to the caps on expensing business assets and to education credits. But many filers will still have to wait until early March to file, IRS says. These include taxpayers who use Form 5695 to take residential energy credits, Form 8582 to report passive losses or Form 8839 to claim the adoption credit. Ditto for businesses that file Form 8903 for the domestic production deduction and many forms for tax credits, such as Form 5884 for the work opportunity credit" -The Kiplinger Tax Letter

IRS Update for Form 8863: Education Tax Credits

The IRS announced today that they will not be able to process tax returns with Form 8863 until mid-February. This is a delay that will impact all tax preparation methods.

What is Form 8863?

Form 8863 is the form that is used to claim the American Opportunity Credit and the Lifetime Learning Credit.

American Opportunity Credit: The American Opportunity Tax Credit is offered to students who pay qualified tuition (and aren’t claimed as dependents elsewhere), as well as to parents who pay expenses for their dependent students or themselves. This tax credit allows you to claim up to $2,500 per student. The full credit is available for individuals with a MAGI(Modified Adjusted Gross Income) of $80,000 or less, $160,000 for married filing jointly. It is 40% refundable, meaning that you can get up to $1,000 back even if you don’t owe taxes.

Lifetime Learning Credit: The Lifetime Learning Credit a perk available to you if you paid qualified college expenses. Rather than limiting your ability to get tax credits for education expenses for the first four years of college, it’s possible to use the Lifetime Learning Credit to offset your expenses even in graduate or professional school. As long as the educational institution is qualified, undergraduate or beyond, you can qualify for up to $2,000 in tax credits for your expenses. It’s figured on 20% of your tuition and fees, up to the first $10,000. There is a phase out as you reach certain income levels. Parents can claim this for dependent students.

Can I still File?

Yes! We are up to date with all the latest tax law changes, including changes to the American Opportunity Credit and Lifetime Learning Credit, so you can be confident that you are getting every deduction and credit you deserve on your tax return. We recommend that you file now with us, so you will be at the front of the line for your refund when the IRS begins to process these returns. Returns will be submitted on a first in, first out basis. For the fastest refund possible, make sure you e-file and select direct deposit.


Good News, everyone who has filed their return at Newnan Tax has been accepted. The IRS has been accepting returns for the past three days. This could possibly move up the date that your refunds will be sent out. We will keep you updated.

The I.R.S. announced that will not be accepting tax returns until January 30th.

What does this mean to you?

It means that your return will not be accepted for processing until January 30. It does not matter whether you file your own tax return with a computer program, prepare a paper return, or use someone to prepare your return commercially. Once the IRS begins processing returns it will take an additional 10 to 14 days for you to receive your tax refund. No one will receive a tax refund before February 10 or perhaps even later. There is nothing your tax preparer or you can do to change this. If you depend on your tax refund to make ends meet, planning to purchase a new vehicle, make a major purchase, or use it to pay off bills, please make your plans accordingly. If you normally file your return before Jan31st, you should continue to file it as you usually do. When the IRS begins accepting returns they are all downloaded at once and processed. Your refund will come back the quickest if it has been prepared prior to January 30th. Please understand there is nothing you can do about this except to plan accordingly. Once your return is filed, you can check on the status of your refund by using the link to the IRS on our website,
