2017 Tax Season Info

Below are some items for clients to bear in mind for the 2017 filing season:
  • Unemployment- For any of our clients who received unemployment benefits in 2017, the State of NJ will no longer mail Form 1099G which lists the taxable amount of unemployment benefits received and any federal withholding tax. Clients must log onto www.njuifile.net (or click on this link) and enter their logon information used to access their unemployment account and click on the option to print Form 1099G.
  • Affordable Care Act - Federal law mandates health coverage for all Americans.  Taxpayers will be asked if they (and all of their dependents) were covered by a health plan in 2017.  Those covered under the Affordable Care Act will be asked to provide forms 1095A with their tax materials.  Clients that receive 1095B or 1095C are required to submit those forms with their tax materials.
  • E-Filing – We anticipate filing your 2017 returns using the e-file program for both your Federal and State return. 
  • Engagement Letters – All clients that use our tax preparation services must sign and return the engagement letter to our office.  This should be done prior to your tax appointment by mailing it to our office, dropping it off at our office, or putting it in with your tax documents.  A copy of the engagement letter can be found here: 2017 Individual Tax Return Engagement Letter

  • Payment Policy – Payment for completed returns must be made at the time the return is picked up at our office.  Our office will not release a return until payment has been received.  In the case of a return that is sent through the mail, payment must be received before we can mail the return.  We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express.  There will be a 2% surcharge added to credit card payments made over the phone.
  • Important Dates – 
  • 2/10/18 – We should be able to begin transmitting returns to the IRS & State(s) by this date.
  • 3/25/18 - Last day to drop off tax information at our office that we will guarantee the return to be finished by 4/15/18.
  • Tax Organizers – If you would like a client organizer for the tax year 2017, please email us at staff@blairassoc.net  by January 31, 2018 and one will be e-mailed to you. 
  • Status of your return - Clients will be asked for an email address when they drop off 2017 tax materials.  You will then be notified by email when your return is ready for pick up.
