WI Sales Tax Holiday - August 1-5, 2018

Sales of certain items are exempt during a five-day period in August 2018.

  The temporary exemption period, referred to as a sales tax holiday,

will begin on Wednesday, August 1, 2018, and continue through Sunday,

 August 5, 2018.


During the sales tax holiday, the following items are not taxable:

  • Clothing, if the sales price of any single item is $75 or less
  • A computer purchased by a consumer for the consumer's personal use, if the sales price of the computer is $750 or less
  • School computer supplies purchased by the consumer for the consumer's personal use, if the sales price of any single item is $250 or less

  • School supplies, if the sales price of any single item is $75 or less


File Using a Postcard & New 1040

The IRS released the postcard version of all 1040 forms.  Is it easier or

quicker?  You decide.  The postcard  lists the taxpayer and/or spouse info,

address, two lines for dependents, abbreviated income, and financial

info on 2 pages.  That's it.  Need more?  There are six (6) additional

schedules, Sch 1, Sch 2, etc.  In total 8 pages, which basically is a

breakdown of the new 2 page 1040.


The new 1040  basically combines several items on one line. 

 Example:  The Earned Income Credit, Child Tax Credit, Educational Credit,

 and Other credits are listed as a total on one line instead as each on a

separate line.

Phone scams, e-mail scams, mail scams, etc. scams:  They are everywhere.  If you receive one do not reply and contact our office or simply hang up.  
The IRS does not threaten to send the police to collect taxes.  If you owe the IRS you will receive notification via the mail (yes, even mailed notices can be fake),
usually several times, and eventually certified mail.  Never under any circumstance give any information over the phone. In short, disregard all phone calls
and forward written notices to our office.

Marketplace:  Usually if you receive your Marketplace form 1095-A after filing your taxes and do not receive an IRS notice you probably are due a refund.  If you receive
a Marketplace notice and owe to the IRS, you will receive an IRS notice.  Either way, mail or bring in your Marketplace form 1095-A to our office. 
Please Note: IRS data must match Marketplace data.  If not, returns are delayed.

Financial Planning (Basic):  You should have 6 months of expenses in cash savings in case of an unforeseen event.  Only about 28% of US citizens have this set aside. 
Early distributions from an IRA. etc., can result in additional taxes of 35% to 65%.
