Tax preparation service is a simple and straight forward exercise for taxpayers who have all the required documents and information. However, many taxpayers seem to always find themselves in a sticky situation every time they get to prepare their tax returns.

Below are some of these common tax preparation challenges and tips on how you can get around them:

Missing Information

  • One of the more common issues when it comes to tax preparation is missing documentation.
  • These documents include W2 forms, 1099 forms, charitable donation receipts, and receipts for qualifying medical expenses. For W2 forms, one can request his or her employer for a copy of the forms.
  • You can also request the IRS to send you a copy of the W2 forms. You can request copies of the 1099 forms from the issuing institution. Many of these institutions may also have a downloadable 1099 copy on their website.

Time Limitations

  1. Another major tax preparation issue is running out of time. One may not have enough time to compile the tax documentation and prepare the tax returns.
  2. You may consider hiring the services of a tax preparer to handle your taxes.
  3. However, if it is nearing the tax deadline and you have not yet identified a suitable tax preparer to handle your taxes, you may consider filing for an extension to give you more time to prepare the tax return (until October).
  4. However, you must ensure that all due taxes are paid by the April deadline to avoid interests and penalties for late payment.

Submitted Form with a Mistake

  • If you discover that you made a mistake on your tax return form after you have already submitted it, there are options to have the error corrected.
  • If it is a mathematical error or other simple errors that may not affect the due taxes, the IRS will most likely make the correction on your behalf.
  • However, if it is an error of wrong amounts included or of omitted entries, you may need to file an amendment. To file an amendment, you can download Form 1040X “Amended U.S. Individual income Tax Return Form” from the IRS and file it.
  • Filing an amendment will delay the processing time and you may have to wait a little bit longer before getting your tax refund.

Do Not Have Cash to Pay Due Taxes

  1. If upon prepare your tax returns you discover that you do not have enough money to pay the due taxes by the deadline, do not get stressed – there are flexible options for settling the bill.
  2. You can file for an Installment Agreement (IA). This way, you can pay off the due tax bill in insta;lments over a period of 6 years. However, you will be charged interest and late payment penalties. You can also request for a 90 day extension to raise the funds.

Did Not Attach a Check

  • If you discover that you filed the returns and did not attach a check for payment of taxes, you can still send the check separately.
  • To do so, you will need to attach Form 1040-V, “Payment Voucher” and indicate your personal details, and the tax period being covered by the check.

Il est agréable d’avoir à ses pieds des chaussures pratiques, légères et confortables. C’est un vrai gage de bien-être durant toute la journée. C’est cette chance qu’offrent les sabots en plastique. En effet, ces chaussures sont connues pour être stables et peuvent être portées durant toute une journée sans aucun problème. C’est d’ailleurs pour cela qu’elles sont très prisées des personnels de santé. Les infirmières, les aides-soignants et les médecins ont toujours des journées très chargée et riches en évènement. Ainsi, pour se déplacer plus rapidement tout en évitant d’avoir des maux de pieds, les sabots sont les accessoires adaptés à cette situation. Ainsi, on en trouve de nombreux types sur le marché et il est important de bien les choisir afin de bénéficier d’un confort idéal.

Les sabots en plastique : la couleur idéale

Aujourd’hui, les sabots plastique peuvent avoir tous les types de couleurs ou de motifs. En effet, s’ils étaient plus souvent utilisés dans les hôpitaux et centres de santé, de nos jours, ils sont aussi prisés par de nombreuses personnes dans le quotidien du fait du confort qu’ils apportent et de leur légèreté. Ainsi, s’agissant des sabots utilisés dans les hôpitaux, les couleurs les plus utilisés sont le bleu ou encore le vert. Elles correspondent en général aux couleurs des hôpitaux et des centres de santé. Pour un souci de professionnalisme, ce sont les plus privilégiées. D’un autre côté, pour une utilisation du quotidien, il existe de nombreuses autres couleurs et même des motifs fleuris. Sachant que les sabots sont surtout utilisés durant l’hiver, les couleurs vives sont plus demandées. En somme, s’agissant des couleurs des sabots plastiques, ce sont surtout les goûts et les besoins qui prévalent.

Les semelles des sabots

S’agissant des semelles des sabots, on peut en distinguer deux types. Il y a des sabots en plastique et ceux en bois. Les semelles en plastique sont légères, pratiques et antidérapantes. Toutefois, elles ont tendance sur le long terme à se désagréger. D’un autre côté, les semelles en bois sont tout aussi pratiques et disposent de propriétés antidérapantes. Cependant, elles ne sont pas légères. C’est l’un de leurs inconvénients majeurs. Toutefois, cela n’enlève en rien leur efficacité. Ainsi, votre choix se fera selon votre utilisation. Si vous travaillez dans un lieu hospitalier, vous aurez besoin de semelles légères. D’un autre côté, si c’est pour les vacances, il est plus judicieux d’opter pour la semelle en bois qui est très durable.

Les sabots en plastique : avec ou sans bride arrière

La bride arrière est la petite lanière qui se trouve derrière la chaussure et qui sert à maintenir le pied. En effet, on peut distinguer deux types de sabots. Ceux avec une bride et ceux sans bride. La bride est importante du fait qu’elle permet au pied de se reposer. Sans cet accessoire, les orteils sont souvent obligés de se maintenir dans la chaussure en s’accrochant. Cela a tendance à fatiguer les pieds après quelques heures. Avec la bride, le maintien se fait plus facilement et c’est un vrai avantage.

It is the art of breathing slowly and deeply in order to chase away all the anxiety and negativity. It is advised to go to a quiet area with fresh and start to do the breathing techniques in peace. It can be your garden, a luxuriant park, etc. The other solution is walking or even jogging. You can also massage your feet, hands or neck with an anti-stress essential oil like lavender and ylang-ylang. Once home, sing, laugh and fall back into childhood for a few minutes by doing a headstand, for example. In short, have fun to lower the pressure. 

Carry out a Review of Who You really Are to Handle Stress

Before the so stressful first date, think about yourself and your personality. Take a quick tour of your qualities and flaws. With all your strengths in mind, you can place them at the right time and put them forward during the appointment. At the same time, your weak points will keep you modest. In addition, this natural anti-stress technique will allow you to be more confident about what you are right before your date. Indeed, identifying your strengths will help you get to know you better and boost your self-esteem. On the way to the date, keep in mind that you are full of resources and you are worthy of being known!

Enjoy the Present Moment without Thinking about the Future to Prevent Stress

To avoid stress during your first date, try to take a step back and live the present moment without thinking of what may happen the next day. Enjoy this moment and the discussion you have with the person. Above all, do not try to play a role to seduce them because that will make you even more stressed. Also trust yourself and follow your intuition.
