1. Efile will be closing for the season on Nov 20. If you haven't filed yet, you really need to do it before then, because otherwise you will have to wait until Efile opens up again in late Jan 2022. (and that's optimistic, last year the opening was delayed to Feb 12!)
This is also the LAST CHANCE to Efile tax year 2018. If you haven't filed that year yet, you need to do so ASAP. If you miss the Nov 20 deadline, you will have to mail in your return in order to file it, and wait the 9 months it takes to be processed. (The hard deadline to file for a refund for 2018 is April 18, 2022)
2. Unemployment refunds are still going out, I just saw that another batch is coming. So if you haven't gotten it yet, hopefully it's on its way now. But I still haven't heard that they are done, so we need to continue to wait. On state refunds, if I told you that you should be getting one automatically and you haven't or that you should wait to amend, do check in with me about that and we will see where we are.
3. The Health Insurance Marketplace is open! You can now sign up for health insurance for 2022! And good news, the credits are now more generous and available to more people, there is no longer a cliff at 400% of poverty level, so even people earning over 50k can get subsidies! Like last year, I am offering FREE help to sign up, if you want to make an appt with me to do the signup online together or just talk about your options, feel free to set up a time through my scheduling page. I want you all to have insurance! Sign up by Dec 15 for coverage starting Jan 1.
Have a wonderful Holiday Season and can't wait to talk to you in January!
