Every year there are changes to the Federal and State tax codes and other timely information coming from the IRS and State. Our team stays on top of these changes throughout the year so we can best serve our clients and we print Tax Tips to help you keep track of the changes.

You can download our 2015 Tax Tips brochure here.

Some of the changes, however, occur after our print deadline. I will keep you informed of the additional changes in this column, as well as in our blog, as they could have a significant impact on your 2015 refund. We will also include other topics that may affect you.

New Indiana Public School Educator Expense Credit

Most K-12 educators employed by an Indiana school corporation will receive $100 tax credit on their Indiana return for certain classroom supplies not reimbursed by their employer. Married couples filing jointly may reflect a maximum credit of $200 if both are eligible educators. Educators employed by parochial, private and home schools are excluded.

New This Year

We’re excited that we can offer you a REFUND ADVANCE of up to $750 this year at 0% interest. Follow this link for the details.

Identity Theft and the IRS

If you think someone has stolen your identity, we can help you fill out Form 14039, Identity Theft Affidavit to notify the IRS to mark your account to Identity Questionable Activity.

The IRS will then assign you an annual unique six-digit Identity Protection Pin Number that must be included on your tax return or the return will be rejected.

Affordable Care Act Penalty Increases

The most significant law that could have a negative impact on your 2015 refund is the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The penalties have increased and can be as much at $325 for adults and $162 per child. Learn more …..

We are also as convenient for you as possible with 22 convenient Fiscal Tax offices open to serve your tax preparation needs. To find a Fiscal Tax location nearest you, please visit Our Locations page.

Thank you for considering Fiscal Tax. We look forward to serving you in 2016!
