Tax Season 2013
Late on January 1, 2013, Congress passed HR 8 (Tax Relief Extension Act). It extended almost all of the Federal tax provisions that had expired at the end of 2011 and 2012. The Tax Relief Extension Act contains many individual, business, and energy tax provisions that were extended or modified. There are some that will have a direct impact on taxpayers filing their 2012 Federal returns this coming filing season. For 2013 the Act restores the top 39.6% rate that was in effect in the 1990s for high-income households. (Over $400,000 single, $450,000 married). According to President Obama, under this law more than 98% of Americans and 97% of small businesses will not see their income taxes go up. Capital gains rate remains at 15% for lower income taxpayers but is raised to 20%, for the above mentioned higher income households.
We are pleased to announce that the staff here at Northend Tax & Accounting Service has completed the necessary continuing education credits to comply with the new guidelines that the Internal Revenue Service has imposed on tax preparers.
In addition to this compliance, in September of 2012, Mary Shellabarger received her status as an Enrolled Agent with the Internal Revenue Service. According to the IRS "Enrolled Agents are granted unrestricted rights to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service, demonstrate special competence in tax matters, adhere to ethical standards, and are required to stay current with tax law and regulations by completing a minimum amount of continuing education annually."
