5 reasons why you need to file your taxes early

Filing your taxes isn’t an option. You have to do it. But when you do, it does offer some flexibility. There’s the deadline of April 15th each year, but most people can extend it through October 15th if needed.

But should you?

Ideally, to keep your personal finances in order and to maintain order, it’s best to file your taxes early. Not convinced? Here are 5 reasons you should.

You’ll Feel Less Stressed

No one likes waiting until the last minute to do anything. When you do, you’ll feel more stressed and incapable of doing a good job. When you rush through your taxes, you’re more likely to make mistakes, which can lead to penalties or even an audit.

More Time to Plan your Tax Payments

If you owe taxes, you’ll have more time to plan your finances. Putting yourself into debt to cover your taxes is never a good idea, and any debt relief plans you apply for won’t include help with your taxes.

You have to pay your taxes, and it’s best if you pay them on time to avoid any penalties. Knowing what you owe early can help you budget and pay your liability on time.

You Might get your Refund Faster

The earlier you file your taxes, the faster you’ll get your refund. Most people wait until the last minute to file their taxes, which means the IRS workload is much higher. If you want your refund fast, your best bet is to file early.

Your Personal Finances will be More Organized

Filing your taxes isn’t just a requirement. It can help you with other financial tools, too. If you will apply for a mortgage or car loan, you may need to provide your tax returns to show your income. If you have your taxes done early, you’ll have the most recent and accurate income statement to ensure you get the financing you can afford.

Prevent Tax Fraud

You might be able to prevent tax fraud if you file your taxes early. If you wait and someone steals your social security number, they may file in your name before you do. When you submit your ‘real’ tax return, it will get rejected because someone else already submitted ‘your taxes.’

Get ahead of the hackers, and get your tax returns in right away. When they try to steal your number and your refund, it will get rejected.

Final Thoughts

It’s important to file your taxes early. If for nothing else, you’ll have peace of mind. Of course, knowing that your taxes are done right, that you’re getting the maximum refund, and that your information is protected is important, too.

We provide debt resolution services. Our clients who make all monthly program payments save approximately 40 – 50% of their enrolled debt (average of 43%) upon successful program completion, before program fees. Fees are based on a percentage of your enrolled debt at the time of starting the program and range from 15%-25% of your enrolled debt. Programs range from 20-48 months. Clients must save at least 25% of each debt due to an enrolled creditor before a bona fide settlement offer will be made. On average, clients receive their first settlement within 4-7 months of enrollment and approximately every 3-6 months thereafter from when the prior debt was settled. Not all Clients complete the program. Estimates are based on prior results and may not match your results. We cannot guarantee that your debts will be resolved for a specific amount or percentage or within a specific timeframe. We do not assume your debts, make monthly payments to creditors or provide tax, bankruptcy, accounting, legal advice or credit repair services. Our program is not available in all states; fees may vary by state. Some programs may be offered through The Law Firm of Higbee & Associates d/b/a Advantage Law. The use of debt resolution services will likely adversely affect your credit. You may be subject to collections or lawsuits by creditors or collectors. Your outstanding debt may increase from the accrual of fees and interest. Any amount of debt forgiven by your creditors may be subject to income tax. Clients may withdraw from the program at any time without penalty and receive all funds from their dedicated account, other than funds earned by the company or fees paid to third-party service providers, as may be applicable. Read and understand all program materials prior to enrolling. Certain types of debts are not eligible for enrollment. Some creditors are not eligible for enrollment because they do not negotiate with debt relief companies. To determine the offers you may be eligible for, Americor conducts a “soft credit pull.” This credit pull does not impact your credit score, creditworthiness, or ability to obtain credit from other sources. The soft pull is not a tradeline entry, it does not report against your score and will only take a few minutes.
