IRS Tax Tip 2019-159

Taxpayers can start to Get Ready now for filing their taxes next year

Most people don’t usually start thinking about their taxes until January. However, it’s not too early to start now.  In fact, taxpayers can get ready for the upcoming tax filing season by doing a few simple things.

First things first…they can visit the newly updated Get Ready page on IRS.gov. It highlights the steps taxpayers can take before they file their 2019 tax return in 2020.

These steps include: 

  • Organizing tax records
  • Checking withholding and making adjustments or tax payments
  • Renewing an expired individual taxpayer identification number

IRS.gov tools and resources help taxpayers understand their tax obligations and filing options. Aside from English, taxpayers will find info in several other languages on IRS.gov. They will find it under the language drop-down menu at the top of each page. 

Here are some of the pages taxpayers can visit now to help them get ready for filing:
