Jones & AssociatesThree Tips from Jones and Associates when filing your 2020 taxes:
  1. Filing your taxes as soon as you are able will decrease the chances of someone fraudulently filing your taxes for you.
  2. An extension to file is not an extension to pay. Taxes are due April 15th, regardless of whether you file your taxes or not.
  3. If you owe, you might consider adjusting your withholdings to decrease the possibility of owing in the future.
