October 15 is final tax deadline

Posted on Oct 2, 2014

If you requested a six-month extension to file your 2013 income tax return, you face a major deadline on October 15. That’s the final date for filing your 2013 return; the IRS generally does not give filing extensions beyond that date. October 15 is also the deadline for undoing a 2013 conversion of a regular IRA to a Roth IRA. If you did a conversion to a Roth last year, you can switch it back to a regular IRA without penalty if you do so by October 15. Need details or filing assistance? Contact our office.

Business tax reminder

Posted on Sep 19, 2013

As year-end approaches, don’t overlook this option to reduce your business taxes for 2013: accelerated write-offs for business asset purchases. For example, the Section 179 immediate expensing deduction lets you write off the cost of assets you purchase and place in service this year, including vehicles, equipment, and software. For 2013, the maximum Section 179 deduction is $500,000. Another example is the “bonus” depreciation deduction, which allows you to expense up to 50% of the cost of new assets, including those that might not qualify for Section 179.

FBAR filing due by June 28, 2013

If you have assets in a foreign account and the total value exceeded $10,000 at any time, you must file the “Foreign Bank Account Report” (commonly called FBAR) by June 28, 2013.

The 2012 FBAR must be received by the Treasury Department by the deadline, not just postmarked by that date. No filing extension is available, and penalties for failing to file are steep. You may choose to file electronically. For details or filing assistance, please contact our...
