Mama Mia These are the pitfalls you will want to avoidIt’s probably safe to say handing cash to Uncle Sam does not top the list of your favorite things. When it comes to filing taxes, making a small mistake can mean paying more taxes than you need to or forking over cash to cover penalties.Fortunately, there’s an easy way to make sure your tax return is mistake-free: just take a little extra time to double check your work. Here’s a closer look at the six most common tax-filing errors and tips to help you avoid making them.Mistake #1: Not reporting all income. Reporting your income is easy if your employer sends you a wage statement (called Form W-2) documenting what you made throughout the year. But what about the money you earned from any freelance work? Unfortunately, many people forget to report extra income from side jobs such as photography shoots, design projects and Etsy shops.How to avoid the error: Depending on how much you earned, you may receive an “information return” called Form 1099 from the institution that paid you. There are numerous 1099 forms that report different types of income earned during the year, but in some cases you may not receive the document. For example, if you earn less than $600 as a freelance writer, the institution is not required to send you Form 1099-MISC. However, you still need to include the amount earned in your total annual income so it’s important to keep your own records of each transaction.“To help accurately report your income, review last year’s return and match your income sources item by item,” says TaxAct Director of tax development, Mark Jaeger. “If you discover you haven’t received a 1099 for your work, last year’s return will serve as a reminder to ask about it. Keep in mind, all freelance or side-gig income is reported on Schedule C as part of your Form 1040.” Mistake #2: Mistyping bank accounts and personal information. Believe it or not, incorrect bank account numbers or personal information – like Social Security Numbers – is one of the main reasons tax returns are rejected. Using a nickname or a shortened version of your legal name also lands near the top of the list.How to avoid the error: Double – or triple – check any personal or bank account information before you submit your completed tax return. “If you need help figuring out account information, don’t be afraid to ask your bank for assistance,” Jaeger says. Mistake #3: Paying too much to file your taxes. Whether you tap a tax professional or choose a DIY tax provider that charges an arm and a leg for their product, paying too much to file your return is a mistake.How to avoid the error: Fortunately, filers have more affordable options to choose from. When looking for DIY options, do some comparison shopping. The leading tax preparation software providers offer similar features and benefits, but the price points can widely vary. In many cases, prices increase as the filing deadline nears. Look for a provider like TaxAct that not only offers a low price, but also guarantees your price won’t increase if you start your online return but wait to file later.Mistake #4: Not e-filing. While 91 percent of tax returns were e-filed in 2016, there are still filers who file a paper return. Going the pencil and paper route often means longer tax return processing times.How to avoid the error: Electronic filing (e-filing) is the quickest and most accurate way to file your tax return. In fact, the IRS typically processes e-filed returns within 48 hours. If you’re due a refund, you’ll get it quicker if you e-file and choose direct deposit.Mistake #5: Incorrect calculations. When the IRS receives your tax return, one of the first steps the agency takes is to check the figures to make sure they add up. Unfortunately, it’s easy to miscalculate numbers – especially if you’re in a rush or aren’t sure what to add or subtract.How to avoid the error: First, take your time and double check all numbers. Second, consider using DIY tax software so you don’t have to do the math on your own.Mistake #6: Using the wrong filing status. Choosing the wrong filing status, like Head of Household instead of Single, can have a great impact on your tax rates, the number of personal exemptions you can claim, your qualifications for certain tax deductions, credits and more.How to avoid the error: Before starting your return, review the five different filing statuses to help you select the one most appropriate for your tax situation. Carefully selecting the right one will help you feel confident you’re taking the right steps to maximize your tax outcome.

I attended a special screening of God’s Not Dead 2 this week at the Regal Cinemas Waterford Lakes Stadium 20 & IMAX in Orlando. The fictional drama reaches the big screen and the hearts of the audience as the film depicts Christian faith on trial, a drama all too unfortunate a reality for many believers today.A simple random act of kindness from a well loved and respected teacher Grace Wesley (Melissa Joan Hart) to one of her hurting students later leads this same student Brooke to ask a simple question about Jesus in an AP History class at Martin Luther King High School. Ms. Wesley states the historical facts about Jesus only to find herself removed from her teaching position and in an epic court case. The drama plays out through the lives of this all-star cast as they take a stand for God.God’s Not Dead 2 brings in real life heavy hitters into the courtroom drama. The writers cleverly weave in cast members from God’s Not Dead as well as some fresh new faces. God’s Not Dead 2 is a must see and leaves you wanting more with a jaw dropping teaser for God’s Not Dead 3. Take the kids to see this powerful movie on taking a stand for what you believe. God’s Not Dead 2 opens in theaters today.Tickets are available in many theaters, so be sure to click on the Theaters link and get your seats today. Also, you can get started on bringing your group of 25 or more to see the film when it opens by visiting God’s Not Dead official website. Get everyone from your church, youth group, or business involved and buy out a private show time.

Twitter Pinterest TAGS Facebook Twitter Local NewsBusiness Pinterest Facebook HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 22, 2021– Last week, millions of Texans were unexpectedly left without electricity or heat amid record cold temperatures. For those that did have power, many had to decide between turning off their only heat source or paying skyrocketing energy prices to keep their homes warm. While many energy companies are charging customers astronomical prices — in some cases, upwards of tens of thousands of dollars — renewable energy retailer, Octopus Energy U.S. (formerly Evolve Energy) is taking a different approach. Effective immediately, Octopus Energy U.S. is enlisting a one-time Bill Forgiveness Plan for all current customers in Texas. The plan provides forgiveness of any energy bill amount that is in excess of the Energy Information Administration of Texas average price of 12.20 c/kWh for the week of Saturday, February 13th through Friday, February 19th. The historic nature of this extreme weather event has led to unprecedented demand on the grid, resulting in skyrocketing wholesale pricing for energy. To protect against a future grid failure, a more distributed grid is needed. One that takes energy from renewable, abundant sources like solar and wind, rather than relying on a central grid dependent on fossil fuels and complex machinery and systems. Wholesale products are a critical component of this solution, as dynamic pricing motivates consumers to use clean energy when it is abundant and is essential for allowing more battery storage to come online when it is needed most. “The lesson everyone should take from the events of the past week is that we are overly reliant on natural gas, which generates more than half of the electricity in Texas,” said Michael Lee, CEO of Octopus Energy U.S. “As climate change increases the frequency and intensity of extreme weather, events like last week will only become more common, requiring forward-thinking, sustainable solutions rather than a continued reliance on fossil fuels or government bailouts to private companies. Private companies must manage their risks and protect customers from extreme events.” Octopus Energy U.S. is committed to putting new consumer protections in place to ensure what happened in Texas is a one-time event, while also continuing to champion consumer wholesale energy as essential to building a cleaner and greener energy future. Octopus Energy is one of the most awarded energy companies in the United Kingdom, where the company was founded five years ago, for its customer service. With a customer-first model, the company has gained eight accolades for outstanding service in 2020 alone and Octopus Energy is the only energy supplier to ever gain the Which? Recommended award four years in a row. Founded by technology entrepreneurs, Octopus Energy has a different starting point to other suppliers, aiming to redefine what is possible for consumers and the energy system by using technology and data to deliver the best products and experiences. About Octopus Energy Octopus Energy Group is a technology-driven, renewable energy retailer, directly supplying 2 million customers globally with 100% green electricity at a cheaper price and with a focus on outstanding customer service. Founded in the U.K. five years ago, Octopus Energy entered the U.S. market in 2020, forming Octopus Energy U.S. and fueling the company’s global expansion. Octopus Energy is valued at over $2 billion and is the U.K.’s fastest-growing private company.
