    (Information contained in U.S. Internal Revenue Service [IRS] press release dated: May 10, 2021) Washington - - The Internal Revenue Service today issued guidance on the taxability of dependent care assistance programs for 2021 and 2022, clarifying that amounts attributable to carryovers or an extended period for incurring claims generally are not taxable.

Because of the pandemic, many people were unable to use the money they set aside in their dependent care assistance programs in 2020 and 2021.

The IRS estimates that more than 16 million taxpayers will get an automatic extension this filing season, either by filing a form or making an electronic tax payment. But some taxpayers, including disaster victims, those serving in a combat zone and Americans living abroad get

    (Information contained in U.S. Internal Revenue Service [IRS] press release dated: April 5, 2021)

    Washington - - As people across the country file their 2020 tax returns, some are claiming the 2020 Recovery Rebate Credit (RRC).

People who didn't receive a first or second EIP or received less than the full amounts may be eligible for the 2020 RRC. They must file a 2020 tax return to claim the credit, even if they don't usua
