(Jersey City, NJ, Wednesday, January 29, 2020) – Getting married or divorced, buying or selling property, having children, or retiring are BIG life changes and also can have a HUGE impact on a taxpayer’s taxes. Simply put — life changes bring major tax implications.
Using a Tax Pro is not only convenient but also incredibly important and helpful. Finding an educated, trustworthy Tax Pro will help taxpayers get the tax refund they deserve by helping them find every credit and deduction available to them and to properly file what the IRS expects from taxpayers.
This year has brought more changes to tax laws that taxpayers need to be aware of. Mark Steber, Chief Tax Officer at Jackson Hewitt, has more than 30 years of tax experience. He’s widely referenced as an expert on consumer income tax situations and tax law and will provide expert background on:
- This the first year under tax reform where the Affordable Care Act penalty or Individual Shared Responsibility Payment has been to zero.
- There is a new form 1040 and new form 1040-SR for senior taxpayers.
- There were also brand-new tax-related bills that were signed into law right around Christmas: the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act
Mark Steber will also provide tried-and-true tax tips: from making sure people are organized before they need to file their tax returns, to understanding why it’s important to file early, to what taxpayers need to do if they’ve gone through life changes.
