Tax season is upon us, and all across the country, people are scrambling to get their tax paperwork and receipts together. The 1040 Tax Calculator takes details such as filing status, income, deductions and credits and uses the information to calculate your total taxes for this year. Based on your projected withholdings for the year, the calculator can also estimate your tax refund or the amount of additional tax that you may need to pay to the IRS on April 15. The 1040 Tax Calculator uses the current tax tables, but it is important to remember that these are subject to modifications by the IRS and changes in the tax code.
Filling out a Form 1040 is certainly not the most thrilling experience in the world – but the thought of a potential tax refund is a tantalising motivator! A check could be arriving in the mail or a lump sum electronically deposited into your bank account at any given moment after you send away the form. To some, tax refunds can offer some much needed, and often unexpected, financial relief. If you are particularly lucky, a refund could result in you finally taking that trip you have been promising yourself, or making a large purchase you could not otherwise afford.
It certainly pays to be as well-informed as possible when it comes to your income and outgoings, which is why the 1040 Tax Calculator is so useful. Although it is nice to get a pleasant surprise, knowing where you stand in advance will enable you to plan effectively. Remember it is always possible that you have underpaid tax, rather than overpaying – and in these cases the money owed will need to be paid. That would be a much less welcome surprise, and knowing in advance will enable you to be prepared.
