- The IRS has updated their smart phone app – IRS2Go. You can check on your refund, find free tax prep help or sign up to follow the IRS on social media. What you can’t do is to request a transcript. No explanation as to why this was removed from the app.
- Tax pros are the latest target of phishers. They are receiving emails requesting that they log into their e-Services account. The goal is to gain their login information.
- As always, the IRS does not initiate contact by phone, email, fax or even test message. Don’t respond if you hear from the IRS through anything but a letter as it is a scam.
- But if you receive something by mail from the IRS or state tax authority, don’t assume it’s a scam. Check it out.
- If you still haven’t received your W-2 or a 1099 form, your first step is to contact your employer or the entity issuing the 1099. There are options if you don’t get the form but the IRS wants to know what you did to get the form.
- If you haven’t received your 1099SSA from Social Security, you can go online to and get a copy if you have a my Social Security Account. Log in and go to the ‘replacement documents’ tab.
- The new repair regulation reporting requirements have been simplified for taxpayers with fewer than $10 million in assets or less than $10 million in average gross income.
