What is the IRS filing threshold?

Per the IRS, the filing thresholds depend on a variety of factors, including (but not limited to) age and marital status. The most common that we see are as follows:

  • Single (under 65): $12,950
  • Single (over 65): $14,700
  • Married filing jointly (both under 65): $25,900
  • Married filing jointly (both over 65): $28,700

If you do not fall into one of these categories, please refer to the IRS website.

I got a IRS notice.. now what?

First thing is first, bring in a copy (or email it) to your tax preparer so they are able to see it. Each IRS notice is different in how it is handled so they need to know the problem before they are able to direct you to the next step.
