Just in time for the busiest weekend for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Commissioner Chuck Rettig has a message to taxpayers. You can watch it here:
In the video, Rettig shares important information for the 2019 tax filing season. There are, he says, three things can you count on this filing season:
- The IRS website (www.irs.gov) has useful information;
- Despite new tax forms and new tax laws, tax software will look the same; and
- If you use a tax professional, it's vital to use a reputable preparer.
During the busy season, the IRS encourages taxpayers to use the website rather than making a phone call (you can read more about the phone call crunch from Forbes’ Ashlea Ebeling here). On the IRS website, you can check on your tax refund, explore payment options and learn about the new tax law changes (www.irs.gov/taxreform).
