Welcome to November — the month of turkey, holiday shopping, family gatherings, and yes, some important tax and compliance deadlines. Here’s a list for your review.

In November, it’s recommended that you:

  • Remind individual clients whose withholding status will change in 2019 to submit new W-4 forms to their employers.
  • Remind individual clients who may have underpaid estimated taxes to increase withholding from salary and wages to make up for shortfall.
  • 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 IRS e-file logo and order IRS e-file marketing materials. See the EFTPS Tool Kit.
