4 Tips for Filing Taxes on Your Own in the Military
Don’t Wait, Start Filing Now
Procrastinating your taxes won’t just delay your refund, it can stop you from being able to properly sort through your finances and think through every decision along the way. This can also lead to mistakes if you end up rushing, leaving no time to review carefully. This gives you less time to handle surprises or to account for unexpected results in your filing. Start now, and you can avoid the risks associated with procrastination!
Make Sure the 1040EZ Is The Right Call
While it may be easier to file a 1040EZ, you need to make sure that it is the right choice for you. Since you can’t itemize deductions or claim any adjustments to income or tax credits (except for the Earned Income Credit), it can stop you from maximizing your refund or minimizing your payment. Switching to a 1040A, for instance, can allow you to claim deductions and still isn’t as large or complex as filing 1040. Find out more about how to choose the right product here.
