INDIVIDUAL/ PARTNERSHIP/ S CORPORATION OR CORPORATION Tax Return(s)
We hope that 2014 was a happy, healthy, and prosperous year for you and your family. Enclosed is your annual organizer for your 2014 taxes. It’s that time of year again when you are receiving your annual income and other statements for the purpose of preparing your 2014 individual and/or corporate and/or other entity income tax returns. Both the IRS and the state of California have additional reporting requirements as well. For instance:
You will need proof of your insurance. You may receive a governmental form such as Form 1095-A – Health Insurance Marketplace Statement or a certificate from your health insurance company. If you do not, please provide us with a copy of your policy.
We wish to remind you to timely file your 2014 tax returns and pay any taxes or estimates that you owe in a timely manner. Please read this carefully, as it contains important information and deadlines.
If you have questions regarding completing the Tax Organizer, or would like to make an appointment to meet with one of our tax preparers, please contact one of the firm members below.
Corporate income tax returns: If you are responsible for corporate income tax returns, the filing deadline is March 16, 2015 for calendar year corporations. If you would like for the Firm to prepare your corporation’s 2014 income tax returns, we must receive your completed 2014 tax information by February 1, 2015.
If you elect to submit a filing extension for your CORPORATION (form 1120 or 1120S) please be advised that IRS Form 7004, must be filed with the Internal Revenue Service by March 16, 2015. With respect to your state of California corporate income tax returns, taxpayers automatically have an extension until September 15, 2015 if your return is not filed by March16, 2015. However, as you are aware, the extension of time to file does not extend the time to pay any tax owing; interest and penalties will accrue on any balances owed. If you would like our office to prepare and file an extension for you, we will be happy to do so for an additional fee.
In order to have sufficient time to prepare your individual (or partnership) 2014 tax returns to be filed by the April 15, 2015 deadline, we must receive your completed 2014 tax organizer and other tax requested information (i.e., W-2’s, 1099 Form(s), etc.) by March 1, 2015.
If you elect to submit a filing extension for your INDIVIDUAL (form 1040) federal tax return, please be advised that an IRS Form 4868, must be filed with the Internal Revenue Service by April 15, 2015. With respect to your state of California individual income tax returns, taxpayers automatically have an extension until October 15, 2015 if your return is not filed by April 15, 2015.
If you elect to submit a filing extension for your PARTNERSHIP (form 1065) federal tax return, please be advised that an IRS Form 7004, must be filed with the Internal Revenue Service, and an extension of 5 months will be granted.
If you would like our office to prepare and file an extension for you, we will be happy to do so for an additional fee.
Avoid any penalties and/or interest that may accrue on outstanding tax liabilities by timely and correctly filing returns and/or extensions and paying the amounts owed to IRS and/or state taxing agencies on a timely basis.
If we receive your individual or partnership tax information after March 15, 2015, you will most likely be on extension. If we receive your corporate tax information after February 15, 2015, you will most likely be on extension.
If we are currently representing you in other tax matters, please also be reminded that timely filing your tax returns and paying your taxes when due may have a significant impact in resolving your case.
If you have any questions, please contact our office.
It is our pleasure to represent you in all of your tax matters, and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
