03/19/2021: The IRS and Minnesota Revenue have extended the due date for individual income tax returns (Forms 1040 and M1) to MAY 17th, 2021.
**URGENT** Congress passed another Covid Relief bill last week and it involves many changes to current year tax law including but not limited to the taxability of Small Business Administration grants and loans as well as Unemployment. We are still awaiting guidance from the IRS on how to proceed with these changes. While we continue to prepare returns as fast as possible, we are experiencing delays as the IRS, MN Revenue and our software providers update this information.
Checklist update. The IRS will be issuing forms 1444 and 1444-B by mail to show stimulus money received from the CARES Act. Form 1444 will reflect stimulus money received from the first CARES Act, 1444-B will reflect payments received in December 2020-January 2021. Both forms will be reconciled on your 2020 tax return even if payment was received after the new year. These forms will ensure that you received the proper stimulus payments and will create a tax credit in some situations. Stimulus money is not taxable nor should it result in an increased payment to the IRS. We will need these forms to complete your tax return. You can use the IRS tool or your bank statements to retrieve these amounts if forms 1444 and 1444b are not available. We need to know the exact amounts of each stimulus distribution.

We will be taking 15-minute in-office appointments between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m, but we are strongly encouraging clients to drop off, upload, or mail documents when possible. We will follow up with phone or email questions to complete your return.
