What you need to know if you haven’t yet filed 2021 TAXES
The extension specifics
The original tax filing deadline for individual returns is April 15, 2021, and that date still stands for anyone who needs to file a federal return and lives outside of Texas. Likewise, all business returns for businesses operating outside of Texas must be filed by March 15, 2021.
If you are a Texas resident or business, however, you now have two extra months to complete your returns and pay any taxes owed. You also have two extra months to make 2020 IRA contributions.
The June 15, 2021 extension also applies to quarterly estimated tax payments originally due on April 15, 2021 as well as the following situations:
Quarterly payroll and excise tax returns normally due on April 30, 2021
Returns filed for tax-exempt organizations operating on a calendar-year basis originally due on May 17, 2021
The extension is automatic, meaning you do not have to do anything to take advantage of it. You do not need to complete any forms, submit a request or contact the IRS to ask for more time to file.
The IRS will also work with anyone who lives outside of Texas but is delayed in meeting the April 15, 2021 filing deadline because the place of business that holds or distributes the records they need to file is in Texas.

Child cash benefit will begin hitting millions of parents’ bank accounts July 15 Administration officials say 88 percent of all American children are slated to receive new monthly payments, with no action needed.
WHERE’S MY REFUND?
Who is likely to be on hold?
if you had EIC, Unemployment, requested Stimulus, are self employed or simply have kids, you may be of of the millions of taxpayers whose refund is being manually processed. We can only check the website www.it’s.gov. If the code on there is 152. then it’s is still processing but not a major issue. Be patient it will come.
The Internal Revenue Service is holding 29 million tax returns for manual processing, contributing to more refund delays than are typical in a normal filing season due to sweeping tax code changes, limited resources, outdated IT systems and a backlog of unprocessed 2019 paper tax returns, according to Erin Collins, the National Taxpayer Advocate.
“As one would expect, IRS employees are stretched thin working through the manual processing of these returns,” Collins said Wednesday. “So if a taxpayer’s return is pulled for manual processing, there will be delays.”
Typically, the IRS sends most refunds within 21 days or less of taxpayers filing their return. But for some early filers, the wait for a tax refund has been six weeks to eight weeks already.
to check on refund go to www.irs.gov

Where's My Refund? shows information for the most recent tax year filed in the current year.
For U.S. individual income tax returns filed on or after July 1, refund information will remain available throughout the following year until you file a tax return for a more current tax year. If a more recent tax year has been processed, you won't be able to see information about a previous tax year on Where's My Refund?
The Where's My Refund? tool includes a tracker that displays progress through 3 stages: (1) Return Received, (2) Refund Approved, and (3) Refund Sent. Where's My Refund? provides a personalized refund date as soon as the IRS processes your tax return and approves your refund. It doesn't show information about amended returns. To check the status of an amended return, use Where's My Amended Return?
Where's My Refund? has the most accurate and complete information available. IRS representatives don't have information beyond what's shown on Where's My Refund? so you don't need to call the IRS unless the tool tells you to call. Updates to refund status are made no more than once a day - usually at night.
If you don't have Internet access, you may call the refund hotline at 800-829-1954, or call 866-464-2050 if checking on your amended return refund.
NEW Stimulus update
How much do I have to earn to qualify for a payment?
You don’t have to have income to qualify for a stimulus payment. But there are income caps.
For the third round of payments, eligible individuals with an adjusted gross income (AGI) of $75,000 or less are entitled to the full $1,400. The ceiling is $112,500 for individuals filing as head of household and $150,000 for couples filing jointly. Eligible taxpayers will also receive an additional $1,400 for each dependent child.

*Note: Again, these are estimated dates based on previous tax refund schedules released by the IRS. The IRS no longer publishes these tax refund charts, due to their auditing process.
Keep in mind it may take a few days for your financial institution to make your deposit available to you, or it may take several days for the check to arrive in the mail. Keep this in mind when planning to use your tax refund. The IRS states to allow for 5 additional days for the funds to become available to you. In almost all cases a direct deposit will get you your tax refund more quickly than 5 days, and in some cases will be available immediately

irs.gov Frequently asked questions about the Recovery Rebate Credit, separated by topic.
THIS IS GOING TO MAKE A DIFFERNCE OVER WHETHER YOU FILE NOW OR LATER.
IF you qualified for stimulus based on 2019 return and income is higher in 2020 you may not qualify for 3rd round. Wait to file 2020, If income lower this year file asap.
“The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will likely determine eligibility for the checks and amounts to be distributed based on people's latest tax return filings. Taxpayers must file their 2020 personal return by April 15, but those who saw their incomes fall last year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic may want to file early to obtain a larger check. Conversely, those who saw their incomes rise in 2020 could receive a higher payment if they wait and file after the checks are distributed.
According to the Senate Finance Committee, Congress is expected to order administrators to use the latest individual income on file—either 2019 or 2020—when the checks are ready to be distributed. The IRS will start taking tax returns on February 12, and individuals who file before the checks go out will receive an amount based on their 2020 income filing. Those who file after payments are distributed will receive an amount based on their 2019 income filing”
Many people got their stimulus today in the mail. before you do your taxes make sure you have checked and rechecked mail so it’s not claimed on return which may cause it to slow down your refund....
Did you receive unemployment in 2020? Don't forget to include it with your 2020 tax return. The 1099 G should be available online.
Did you get a letter stating you owe for an overpayment? If so it may affect your refund as IRS is allowed to offset your return for anything owed to the federal or state government. Please review the information below to avoid having an issue,.
Treasury Offset Program Collection
If you have an overpayment of unemployment benefits, and have not repaid that debt, your federal Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax refunds may be subject to reduction by the overpaid amount.
The Treasury Offset Program (TOP) is a federal program that collects past due debts owed to federal and state agencies by capturing IRS tax refunds to offset these debts. TWC issues letters to former unemployment benefit claimants who have debts that are subject to collection through TOP.
Federal law requires TWC to collect specific types of unemployment benefit debt from both claimants and employers. Claimants with an overpayment caused by incorrectly reported earnings, fraud and fraud penalties are subject to TOP.
Collection through TOP is only initiated after an overpayment determination is final and other collection notices have failed. If you have an overpayment that is subject to TOP, TWC will mail a letter showing the amount you owe, along with instructions on how to avoid referral to collection. You must complete one of the following actions within 60 days of the mail date of the letter to avoid collection through TOP:
Submit full payment of the amount indicated
Enter into a six-month repayment plan and submit the first monthly payment
Submit documentation showing that you have paid the debt in full
Submit documentation explaining why the amount is not subject to TOP referral, such as a bankruptcy ruling
As part of the TOP collection process, TWC is required to notify you of our intent to refer the debt to TOP for collection 60 days before referral in order to give you the opportunity to either make payment arrangements or explain why the debt should not be considered subject to TOP collection. Receiving a Notice of Intent to Offset letter does not give you an additional opportunity to appeal the original decision that caused the overpayment. If you have already paid the amount in question or have addressed the debt in a bankruptcy filing, you will need to provide information regarding these actions.
For additional information on TOP, you can review the Bureau of the Fiscal Service websites:
While Irs has delayed the tax season, you might want to consider a tax advance. While this may not be a option for everyone it may come as great help to others... we do offer this product although it is a loan and there is a fee associated with it.... callus for more info...
Short on cash ? Can’t wait for a refund? Give us a call to apply for a refund advance. $500-$6000 based on refund starting January 4th.
If accepted this is a loan and interest rates apply. Will be paid back from refund. Other terms apply. Interested? Call us at 713-473-1040. Or 832-429-7465
TO ALL TAXPAYERS;
Before you do your taxes open a bank account. Do it now it is the best and easiest way to get your refund in a timely manner. That goes for stimulus checks as well. While the current issue with millions not getting the 2nd round stimulus yet is likely due to the rushed time line, it makes sense to have your funds direct deposited, whether you do it yourself or use a prepared and whether or not you pay upfront or deduct from your refund. Do everything you need to do to avoid issues.
MOST IMPORTANTLY —REVIEW YOUR RETURN.
IF A TAX PREPARER COMPANY ETC GARANTEES YOU A LARGE REFUND - RUN
You do not need to have issue with IRS. Make sure you are not taking credits you are not entitled too. If you claim grandchildren, nieces nephews, siblings, make sure you can prove support, meaning you provide more than 1/2 their support and they live with you. You are the guardian your named in school records etc.... If you claim parents, bothers. sisters, disabled children make sure you have documentation of disability and support as well. A parent does not have to live with you to be your dependent, but you do have provide more than1/2 of their support
Every year people try to take advantage of new credits that become available, or credits they are not entitled to—DON’T. IT CAN BE A COSTLY MISTAKE—-one that eventually catches up to you and affects everyone— tax fraud affects all of us!
MANY HAPPY RETURNS

January 15 is the last day for stimulus payments before tax season—unless you’re part of these groups

Friday, Jan. 15 is the last day for many taxpayers to receive a direct deposit stimulus payment before tax season, unless you are part of a few select groups.
Don’t miss: The best cash-back credit cards with no annual fee
Congress gave the IRS until Jan. 15 to send out the economic impact payments (EIP), worth up to $600 for individuals and their child dependents, when it approved a second round of checks in late December. And while the agency says 100 million payments have been delivered, a few hiccups over the past few weeks will delay the payments for some taxpayers.
Those affected by the IRS account mix-up (mainly people who filed their 2019 returns via tax software from TaxAct, Jackson Hewitt and others) and those receiving paper checks or pre-paid debit cards may still receive their stimulus payments in the coming weeks.
The IRS is advising taxpayers to watch their bank accounts and mailboxes closely. The debit cards will be mailed in a white envelope with the U.S. Treasury Department seal. Taxpayers can determine how their EIP will be delivered by using the IRS “Get My Payment” tool.
All other eligible taxpayers who have not received a direct deposit and are not part of those groups will need to claim a Recovery Rebate Credit on their 2020 tax returns. The IRS announced Friday that it is pushing back the start of tax filing season to Feb. 12 (typically, the agency starts processing returns in late January).
The IRS is advising people to file electronically and opt for direct deposit in order to get their checks as quickly as possible.
Redirecting missing payments
The IRS is in the process of redirecting payments it erroneously sent to closed bank accounts. Jackson Hewitt, TaxAct and other companies whose customers were affected said the payments would be made available to customers starting on Feb. 1.
“Payments will be issued directly from the government later this month (our industry partners are not in possession of these funds), within weeks of the law being enacted,” the agency noted. “For people in this group, payments may be issued either as a paper check or as a direct deposit.”
The error also affected H&R Block and TurboTax customers, however those companies were able to work with the IRS to get the payments redirected sooner. The IRS has not responded to questions from CNBC Make It about why it was able to redirect payments for customers of some companies more quickly than for others.
