Five easy ways to prepare for tax season

[disclaim]This is a sponsored post in partnership with H&R Block. All thoughts and ideas remain our own.[/disclaim]

The year just started… and we all know what that means. No… not a new diet – it means tax time is coming!!! Every year I pledge up and down that I’m going to be on the ball and get everything done before the deadline. And yes, I always wait until the very last minute. This year, it’s going to be different. This year, I have five easy ways to prepare for tax season that will have me ready for my H&R Block appointment. I’m also going to be ready to accept any surprises that may come my way – and you should too! We have a special surprise for you at the end of this post that involves a very special sweepstakes and $1,000. Read on…

Five easy ways to prepare for tax season

Get a container (heck, even a shoe box will do). It’s the easiest step and probably the most fun. Get one with a cute design.

Throw in every tax form that comes your way into your new container. Those forms that are emailed to you? Print them out as soon as you get them and thrown them in the box too. I’ve found that waiting until the last minute is even worse when you find out that you’re also out of ink on your printer.

Make your tax appointment as soon as possible. H&R Block gives you the option of making an appointment on their website and you can choose a Spanish-speaking tax professional if needed. I’ve always liked to make appointment with a bilingual H&R Block tax professional because there are some things you can’t translate. Maybe it’s a comfort thing too. Anyway, making an appointment at H&R Block is super easy and I’d highly recommend setting a hard date – and then don’t let yourself reschedule! Walk in or call 800-HRBLOCK (800-472-5625) to make your appointment with one of their 8,000 bilingual professionals today.

Welcome door mat

Make note of any big changes. New baby? Celebrating a new home purchase? Took the jump into marriage? All those chances will need to be reflected in your tax returns. Add yours and every one of your dependent’s social security numbers into your tax container. Keep an eye out for Form 1098 if you recently purchased a home (this will list the interest you’ve paid). Think about whether you’ll be filing married or single if you’re a newlywed.

Gather all of your receipts for anything that can be claimed as a deduction, including the ones given to you from those repeated visits to your local thrift store to drop off goods. Everything counts. Click here for tips on correctly claiming charitable deductions. Want to know what else you can deduct? Check out this Deductions for Individuals list.

Bonus: Admit defeat and file a tax extension, especially if you’re reading this the day taxes are due and you can’t get in to an H&R Block office. Filing an extension will move your new tax due date to October 15th. Doing this before the day after the tax deadline will keep you from paying late-payment penalties.

Unfortunately, tax season will not go away, no matter how much you ignore it. Make the best of it and take the tips listed above and get on your A-game. Oh, and the filing deadline to submit 2015 tax returns is Monday, April 18, 2016 – not the traditional April 15 date.

    I am on a quest to get fit and healthy this year. I ad surgery a few years back and had to stop working out for a year. After that I got lay and packed on the lbs. and ate very unhealthy. Now I am pre-diabetic, and have been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue. Exercise and proper diet are key to getting both under control. So I have been eating healthy, drinking my water, and signed up today for a gym, with 3 free training sessions. If I were lucky enough to win I would get more training sessions to keep on with my journey to get fit. I would probably also use some to get a haircut and my nails done as a reward for the 12 lbs I have lost so far and to feel better about myself so that I stay motivated.

    My son goes to a Spanish immersion elementary public school and right now they are having a jogathon. 100% of the money earned at the jogathon goes towards funding arts, pe, science and other programs for the youth. Half of my son’s school receives government aide, so if I won, I would give half of it to his school to support our leaders of tomorrow and with the other half I would plan a trip to Mexico, so my son could practice his espanol!!
