1. I am starting to go through people who filed prior to March 18 with unemployment or health insurance subsidy paybacks. The IRS has started to send out automatic refunds, but it might take a while to get through the millions of people. I'd say give it at least 6 months - so November. They've already stated that people with complex returns and married people will be going last. I will put a note on this blog when the IRS says they are done and to contact them if your refund is still missing. Please do not email me asking where your refund is, I have no information. All we can do is wait patiently. I will send you an email telling you how much to expect in the next month or so, and if you don't get your full amount we will work on it!
2. I will be on vacation from July 10 through July 22, seeing my parents and in-laws for the first time in 2 years! (Yay for amazing vaccines!) I will only be available then for emergencies, so plan accordingly.
3. If you filed an extension, the deadline to file is Oct 15. If you owe, you are racking up penalties and interest every day, so get on that. Efile closes around Nov 15, and you do not want to have to wait another 2 months til filing opens again, so don't dilly-dally!
Thank you to all of you wonderful people for your patience this year! This was by far the most ridiculous tax season ever, and you folks make it all worth it!
