  1. Create or access your account information at
The government pages are constantly updated so that the information you need gets to you in advance about your federal tax account.
  1. Gather and organize your tax records
Organization is the key to successfully navigating these processes, as it helps avoid mistakes that can cause delays, as well as help you find deductions you may have overlooked.
  1. Check your Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN)
You will need to renew it if it has expired and if it is needed on a federal tax return.
  1. Make sure you have withheld enough tax
The IRS recommends that you adjust your withholding if you owed taxes or if you received a large refund when you filed.
  1. Speed up your tax refund with direct deposit into your bank account
We know your time is precious, so to save time and get your tax refund, file electronically and choose direct deposit.
The attention to detail and the time you take to complete this process are key to making your tax experience a smooth one. For any questions or problems you may have, the #TeamOfTaxExperts at Core CPAs & Advisors is here for you this tax season.
