Did you have a key life event, in 2019? if so, and the estimator recommends a change, you can submit a new W-4 or complete a W-4P. Make estimated or additional tax payments , if you have substantial non-wage income you need to make quarterly estimated tax payments on: self- employment or investment income, including any gains related to virtual currency, taxable social security benefits and, in some instances, pension and annuity income. the last payment for 2019 is due Jan-15.
Gather and Organize
Use a record-keeping system – electronic or paper — that puts all important information in one place. This includes copies of filed returns and all supporting documents for at least three years: W-2’s, 1099’s, other income documents, records documenting all virtual currency transactions and 1095-as. Lastly, make sure each employer, bank or other payer along with the irs and social security administration have your current mailing or email address.
