Here are some important considerations from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)
- ++If you think you are going to get money back when you file you should still file your return as soon as possible so that the IRS can process your return and send your refund.
- ++The IRS urges anyone with a tax filing obligation who has not yet filed a tax return for 2018 or 2019 to file as soon as they can to receive an economic impact payment. Taxpayers should include direct deposit banking information on the return. Learn more about economic impact payments.
Be careful of scams. The IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email, text messages or social media channels to request personal or financial information. See also: How to know it’s really the IRS calling or knocking on your door.
