Don’t miss the deadline! People who have not filed their 2021 tax return have a limited time to complete filing. The extension deadline is October 17, 2022. Learn about the best way to file and how to avoid common mistakes when filing under an extension with Expatriate Tax Returns.
The best way to file tax returns is electronically. Filing electronically is the quickest and easiest way to file since the submission will be immediate, the electronic system can detect form errors, and calculates data. Instead of waiting on the postage system to deliver tax returns or for approval on the filing submission, taxpayers can depend on accuracy and effectiveness by filing online. Filing online helps taxpayers avoid these common mistakes:
Names used for filing should match the spelling on the taxpayer’s Social Security Card and ID. Misspellings could prolong filing time and could disqualify the filing submission.
Information such as the SSN, taxpayer income, address, and other information should be accurate and the exact same as what is printed on the associated documents. Online filing could help prevent submission rejection since the system can prevent mathematical errors.
Provide as much information as possible, especially if the online system is requesting such information. If any data is missing from the submission, preparers will have to collect the information which prolongs the filing process time and can disqualify the submission.
