A Tax Haven Experience You Can Trust Since 1988

IRS Begins Accepting Returns January 20th, 2015

Despite rumors of the IRS starting tax season later than the previous years, the IRS has now said it will begin accepting tax returns on January 20, 2015. Congress did indeed seem to drag their feet for quite awhile, knowing many Tax-Extenders had expired at the end of 2013, but thankfully, they finally decided to continue with many of the Tax-Extenders, and the legislation was signed into law on Dec. 19, 2014. Unfortunately, they only extended them through Dec. 31, 2014! It would make more sense for them to set a longer extension, instead of having to revisit this topicĀ at the last minute each year. But, oh the politics!

Some of the popular tax breaks that were extended for 2014 include:

Educator Expense- up to $250

Deduction of PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance)

Deduction of State Sales Tax in lieu of State Income Tax

Mortgage Debt Forgiveness

Tax-Free Distributions from an IRA for Charitable Purposes

Increased Section 179 Expense Limits
