The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has identified the most common tax filing mistakes that can slow the processing of the tax return.
The slow process may result in delaying the tax refunds, so don’t rush. Learn how to avoid the most common errors that you can make and the most important – don’t wait until the last day to file the forms.
1. Wrong or missing social security number – Transposing numbers can be as basic as writing quicker than you might suspect. What’s more, endeavoring to review Social Security number (SSN) for your children can bring some errors. Ensure you enter the right numbers and after that compare them with the Social Security cards.
2. Mistaking the name – We don’t say that you don’t know your own name, but surely you need to check if you misspelled some letter. Make sure that the characters match with those on your Social Security card. If you changed your name or surname, inform the Social Security Administration about that.
