Recently, the IRS released its 2014 tax calendar. As we finish 2013 and look forward to the clean slate of a new year, it is important to be aware of the important dates on the calendar so that you can avoid serious mistakes and the potential penalties that go along with those mistakes.
What the IRS 2014 Tax Calendar Can Tell You
Generally, the 2014 tax calendar put out by the IRS in Publication 509 is going to give you the important dates that you need to know for the next calendar year. Specifically, you will find out:
- When all of your specific filings are due for you as an individual, and for your business, if applicable
- When you need to pay your individual and business taxes
The calendar contains a general tax calendar, an employer’s tax calendar, and an excise tax calendar. However, it does not include due dates for other types of taxes, such as estate and gift taxes.
What to Do if You Miss a Deadline
Knowing the deadlines is important. However, knowledge of the deadlines does not always mean that you can comply with the requirements. If you miss a deadline, it is important to assume that the IRS will find out about it and use its authority to pursue payment and possible penalties. Accordingly, if you have already missed a deadline for this year, or if you find yourself in a difficult position during 2014, then we encourage you to call an experienced Tulsa tax lawyer today at 800-721-7054 and to read our FREE book, The Ultimate Survival Guide for IRS Problems, to learn more.
