Don’t Wait in Line, Go Online – www.IRS.gov

The IRS website has a wealth of free information and online tax support. Via http://www.irs.gov you may:

Check the status of your tax refund

Whether you chose direct deposit or asked the IRS to mail you a check, you can check the status of your refund by clicking Where’s My Refund?

Find out how to make payments electronically

You can authorize an electronic funds withdrawal, use a credit or debit card, or enroll in the U.S. Treasury’s Electronic Federal Tax Payment System to pay your federal taxes. Electronic payment options are a convenient, safe and secure way to pay taxes.

Find out if you qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit

EITC is a tax credit for many people who earned less than $49,000. Find out if you are eligible by answering some questions and providing basic income information using the EITC Assistant.

Get tax forms and publications

You can view and download tax forms and publications at any time.

Calculate the right amount of withholding on your W-4

The IRS Withholding Calculator will help you ensure that you don’t have too much or too little income tax withheld from your pay.

Request a payment agreement

Paying your taxes in full and on time avoids unnecessary penalties and interest. However, if you cannot pay your balance in full, you may be eligible to use the Online Payment Agreement Application to request an installment agreement.

Get information about the latest tax law changes

Learn about tax law changes that may affect your tax return. Special sections of the website highlight changes that affect individual or business taxpayers.

Remember the address of the official IRS website is http://www.irs.gov. Beware of IRS sites that end in .com, .net, .org. And, as always, consult your Cook Wealth financial advisor if you have any questions.
