The 2022 tax season is upon us, and taxpayers should plan on spending at least 13 hours this year preparing their return, according to the Internal Revenue Service. Business owners should set aside roughly 24 hours to complete their tax return.

Those 13 hours include time for record keeping, tax preparation, form submission, and possibly writing a check to the U.S. Treasury.

This year taxes must be filed by Monday, April 18. While that may seem like a long way off, we all know that it can creep up on you fast. Being proactive and budgeting time for your taxes early will help you to ensure that you get them done on time. 

Most of us have heard the stories of the victims of the recent wildfires in Colorado. We know that these victims did not have much time to gather the necessary files and many lost important documents including tax documents. Additionally, many of them continue to face the daily challenges of rebuilding their lives. For victims of the Marshall Fire, the IRS has granted an extension until May 16. This includes extensions for quarterly estimated income tax payments and various other personal and business taxes.1 For more information you can visit irs.gov

Whether you are a fire victim looking to rebuild or busy professional with little time to spare, you can decide to take advantage of this time to see if you’re on track to pursue your financial goals.
