Amended Tax Returns
Amended returns allow tax filers to correct errors made on IRS tax returns. Such errors include changing filing status, over or under-reported income or incorrect deductions and credits. Math errors or omitted schedules do not require an amended return as the IRS processing center often corrects these errors on the original return. The Internal Revenue Service allows tax returns to be amended up to three years following the date the original return was filed or two years subsequent to the date the tax was paid. Amended returns are filed using Form 1040X for returns originally filed using Form 1040, Form 1040A, Form 1040EZ, Form 1040NR, or Form 1040NR-EZ.
Electronic filing of all Federal and State returns with direct deposit of refunds or scheduled electronic payment of balance due
Federal/State e-file allows the electronic filing of both Federal and state income tax returns at the same time. The electronic filing software places your Federal and state return data in separate packets. These packets are transmitted to the IRS in one taxpayer envelope. The IRS functions as an electronic post office for the participant state, who receives and processes the state electronic return. Federal tax payments can be madevia electronic funds withdrawal or credit card. Most states are accepting electronic funds withdrawal and credit card payments, but federal and state payments are not combined.
ITIN/ W7 Application and Processing
Pursuant to a written agreement with the IRS, we are authorized to assist individuals and other foreign persons who do not qualify for a Social Security but who still needs an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). This applies to H1, H4, L1 and F1 visa holders.
An ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) is a number issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for the exclusive purpose for of tax processing. It is intended for certain residents and non-residents aliens, their spouses and their dependents. An ITIN is only available to individuals who do not have and are not eligible to receive a Social Security Number (SSN) from the Social Security Administration (SSA) but are required to file a tax return. An ITIN is a number that looks similar to a SSN but begins with the number “9” and has a range of numbers from “70” to “88”, “90 to 92” and numbers “94” to “99” for the fourth (4th) and fifth (5th) digits. ITINs without regard to immigration status because residents and non-resident aliens, alike, may be required to pay taxes and file a tax return under the Internal Revenue Code.
Only individuals who are required to file a federal tax return or who have had taxes withheld and would like a refund for overpaying their taxes are eligible to obtain an ITIN.
