Although each tax season can bring unique challenges, there are ways to make sure you and your family are prepared.
To start, remember to gather all necessary information, including:
- W-2, 1099 income and 1095-A health insurance forms
- Receipts, mileage and similar information
- Interest, investments and retirement account details
If you owe money, you may be able to avoid a lump sum payment by arranging a payment plan with the IRS.
