    In order to guarantee a timely filing we need to have your information no later than:

    *Any information turned in after this drop-off deadline will cause your tax return to be extended.

    E-File Authorization

    The E-File Authorization is the form you sign authorizing us, Godwin & Associates, to electronically file your tax return.

    We e-mail these for signature when we are finishing up your return.

     

    *This is not a copy of your tax return. If you have any questions about how these numbers were calculated we are more than happy to go over that with you.

     

    We are required by federal and state agencies to file electronically, whenever possible. There are very few incidences when paper-filing a return is necessary.

     

    IRS requires that we transmit the Electronic Filing Authorization forms (Forms 8879 and SC 8453) through a secure medium which includes identity verification procedures.

    Tax Return Filing Policy

    Tax returns are filed upon completion of the E-File authorization and payment has been remitted for the tax preparation fee.

    Filing Deadlines:

    • S-CORP (1120-S): MARCH 15
    • PARTNERSHIP (1065): MARCH 15
    • C-CORP (1120): APRIL 15

    • S-CORP: SEPT 15
    • PARTNERSHIP: SEPT 15
    • C-CORP: SEPT 15
    • INDIVIDUAL: OCT 15

    * The extension is for the filing of the return. This does not constitute an extension on tax due. Any tax owed that is not paid by the due date will result in interest and penalties

     

    *SC issues a tax lien after 30 days on unpaid taxes whether or not you have an active installment agreement with them

  • Tax Season:

  • Need to make a payment?

    We accept ACH transfers, Visa, Mastercard & Discover

    A few tips:

    • You will receive an email via Bill.com with a subject line: You have an invoice from Godwin & Associates, CPA
    • Click on the link that says: "to pay your invoice and view your account history, log in below"

    • This will take you to a log in screen. If this is your first time, you will need to create a user name & password.

    • If you have forgotten your log-in information click the "forgot password" link

  • Ahh!  I got a tax notice! 

    What do I do now?

    No need to panic!  Having your return selected for examination does not suggest that you made an error or were dishonest.  

     

    Please, send us a copy of the notice in its entirety.  We will do a little bit of digging to see what this notice is about.

     

    If this is a notice generated as a result of something we are engaged to do for you, we will respond.

    We may need a Power of Attorney in order to speak with the taxing agency on your behalf.

    If this is a notice outside of the scope of work we do you, there will be a separate invoice and engagement letter for the notice response.

     

    BEWARE OF SCAMS

    The IRS does not send out unsolicited emails requesting detailed personal information. They will not contact you by phone and request payment over the phone. If you have any questions or confusion over correspondence or contact you receive from IRS or any state agency, please let us know.
