December 10, 2020

Check out the Get Ready page of IRS.gov for steps you can take now to make filing your 2020 tax return easier.

Here are few tips to get you started

  • Most income is taxable, so gather your income documents, such as Forms W-2 from employers, Forms 1099 from banks and other payers, records of virtual currencies or income from the gig economy.
     
  • If you received an Economic Impact Payment, you should've also received EIP Notice 1444. This notice will be helpful to have when you prepare your 2020 federal tax return.
     
  • Review information from your most recently filed tax return through your account information online.
