The IRS announced that January 23 was the start of the 2023 tax season—or the date the IRS began accepting 2022 tax year returns.
If you have yet to file, most taxpayers have until Tuesday, April 18, 2023, to submit their tax return or request an extension. Taxpayers requesting an extension have until October 16, 2023, to file.
Even if you file for an extension, you are still required to pay the taxes you owe by April 18.
Is your business organized as a partnership, are you a part of a multi-member LLC, or do you own an S-Corporation? If so, you must file the appropriate business form by March 15, 2023. C-Corps abide by the traditional April 18 deadline.
For most deductions, deadlines to minimize taxes have already passed. For example, you can no longer take a tax loss on the sale of an asset for tax year 2022. The same holds true for charitable contributions.
But as you prepare to file, I want to remind you that opportunities to harvest tax savings are still available.
