2010 Tax Update

Just went to a 2 day tax update seminar and here is some of the info I found out:

*As of right now, effective 1/1/12, all businesses must give 1099-MISC’s to all goods and services vendors that they pay a total of $600 in aggregate (Not just one single payment, in total), if greater than 250 vendors should be able to file electronically.

*Effective 1/1/11, if you are a passive owner of rental property (don’t do real estate as a main business), you must give 1099-MISC to all goods and service vendors you pay in aggregate $600 (Not just one single payment, in total)

*For New York State, you can no longer opt out of e-filing.  If your return is e-filiable, then you MUST e-file.

*No more $250 educator deduction for K-12 for 2010.

*No more extra $1,000 added to standard deduction if you pay real estate taxes for 2010.

*Making work pay credit is back for 2010 ($400 single, $800 married)

*No hope credit for 2010 but still have lifetime learning and American Opportunities credit for 2010.

*No tuition and fees deduction for 2010.

*Possibility that marriage penalty might be back for married filing jointly 2011.

*First time homebuyer credit done in 2010.  Must have agreement by 4/30/10 and closed by 9/30/10.

*2010 is last year of energy credit, installation of energy equipment still in effect through 2016 (ex. Solar energy, wind energy, geothermal heat pump, fuel cell property).

  4. Happy that we are having more open government which is unusual with Republicans. Why didn’t the Democrats try to make Congress more open when they were in power?
