Currently, there seems to be some confusion about the tax deadline. It is our position that it is in your best interest to file your return or the extension by 4/15. Do not hold out till 7/15. Please let us know if you we can be of service. Practice safety and well being at all times not just in crisis. #COVID19 #IRS #taxes

twitter.com “In response to #COVID19, Treasury and #IRS allow most tax payments to be delayed until July 15. You need to file a return or request a filing extension by April 15. No other filing is necessary for payment extensions. See free options at: https://t.co/hEEWmgHA9V”

[03/17/20]   The federal tax filing deadline and tax payments under $1 million has been extended for 90 days. Before you take "advantage" of the 90 day filing reprieve let's be sure that your state has also offered a filing extension. Currently, DC & MD have 4/15 deadline while VA tax deadline is 5/1.

1 in 5 Americans are making a terrible 401(k) mistake

"The maximum contribution level your employer is willing to match should be the bare minimum you choose to put into your 401(k)." Not only are you boosting your retirement nest egg, you are effectively reducing your taxable income when contributing pre-tax dollars. #InvestInYourFuture #LowerTaxes

[01/30/18]   Happy Tax Season! Today kicks off the filing season of your 2017 taxes which are due on 4/18/2018! Reminder: If you claim the earned income tax credit (EITC) or the additional child tax credit (ACTC) on your tax return, the IRS must hold your refund until at least February 15 — even the portion not associated with EITC or ACTC.
