November 2017 Tax and Compliance Deadlines

Tax Law and News November-2017-tax-deadlines

All of us have a great deal to be thankful for – and in November, we celebrate with our families. This time of the year is also a great opportunity to contact your clients to let them know how thankful you are for their partnership and business. And, don’t forget to remind them of November’s important tax and compliance deadlines. Here’s a list for your review.

In November, it is recommended that you:

  • Remind individual clients whose withholding status will change in 2018 to submit new W-4 forms to their employers.
  • Remind individual clients who may have underpaid their estimated taxes to increase the withholding from their salary and wages to make up for the shortfall.
  • Renew your Preparer Tax Identification Number.
  • Register online to use IRS e-services. Preparers who anticipate filing 11 or more 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ and 1041 returns during the year must file electronically.
  • Set up tax preparation software and test e-filing.
  • Download the IRS e-file logo and order IRS e-file marketing materials. Access the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System Toolkit here.
