There are several advantages to filing your tax return without any delay for the 2024 Tax Season.  Firstly, it allows you to receive your refund sooner and reduces risks associated with your tax identity.  Additionally, starting your tax preparation early gives you ample time to gather all required documents and information for claiming deductions, avoiding a last-minute rush.  If you use a paid preparer, they may have more flexibility and potentially offer lower fees or hourly rates during non-peak periods.  While the official deadline is April 18, 2023, the IRS typically begins accepting tax returns as early as mid-January.

Here are a few key benefits for tax preparers when they file their returns early for the 2024 Tax Season.


Avoid Late Filing Troubles

Tax return filing requires careful attention to detail, as each field on the form must be accurately completed.  It is important to take the time to provide the correct information, as rushing to file at the last minute can result in mistakes and inaccuracies.  If errors are made, it will be necessary to correct them and submit revised returns at a later date.


Early e-verification and Faster Refund Process

Filing your income tax return early ensures that it is verified and ready for refund processing sooner.  The refunds are processed on a first-come, first-serve basis, so those who file their returns before the due date will receive their applicable tax refund sooner.  However, if you file your returns late, the refunds will be delayed.


Avoid Penalties!

If you fail to file your tax return on time, you will be subject to a penalty of 5% of the unpaid taxes for each month or part of a month that the return is late.  However, this penalty will not exceed 25% of the unpaid taxes.  However, missing tax payments can have severe repercussions that indirectly affect your credit score.


Easy Loan approval and Visa Processing

Banks and financial institutions require customers to submit their income tax returns from the past three years in order to process various loan applications, including home loans and vehicle loans.  Credit card companies also prioritize submitting tax returns before issuing a card.  Filing income tax returns before the deadline demonstrates your reliability as a borrower and facilitates a smooth loan approval process.  Additionally, income tax returns are mandatory for Visa processing, serving as evidence of your financial stability and credibility.


Carry forward Losses!

Business Owners can benefit from early filings in tax season 2024 as they can carry forward any losses incurred to subsequent years and utilize them to offset the income earned in those years.


Keep away from Last-Minute Traffic!

The income tax filing website often encounters a significant surge in traffic as the deadline approaches, resulting in a temporary malfunction of the site.  This can potentially cause delays in filing your returns.  To avoid any last-minute technical glitches and non-compliance problems, it is advisable to submit your tax returns well in advance of the deadline.  Doing so can ensure a smoother and timely filing process without any unnecessary stress or complications.
