Tax Season
We have had a very successful yet challenging tax season.  The IRS made numerous changes to their tax forms and the tax laws.  States followed by complying, or not complying, or falling somewhere in between.  It has been a software updating nightmare, but we are pleased with our final result.  A special thanks for those of you who have chosen to contribute to our ministry with a financial gift.  This year has put some real strain on our budget and your thoughtfulness has been appreciated more than ever.  By the end of tax season we had prepared more than 2,500 tax returns – we could not do that without your support.

HSA Contributions
Many of you contribute to a HSA (health savings account) and we have noticed that many times these contributions are individual contributions.  It would save taxes if the church would send these contributions in on your behalf rather than sending them in as an individual contribution.  You can find more information about HSA’s on our website at:  HSA

IRS PIN
Many of you have a PIN assigned to you by the IRS which goes on the bottom of your tax return.  This PIN is something you should not give to anyone (not even us).  If you have been assigned a PIN by the IRS fill it in once you receive the completed return.  Do not send us your PIN in advance.

 

Extension
If you submitted an extension of time to file with the IRS or state because you were not ready to have your taxes prepared by April 15th, please send your information to us as soon as possible.  It is very helpful if you do not wait until October to send us your tax information.

Sincerely in Christ,

James W. Rickard
