    From the IRS:

    2.  New requirement for most businesses beginning Jan. 1, 2024

    Beginning on Jan. 1, 2024, many corporations, limited liability companies and other entities created or registered to do business in the United States must report information about their beneficial owners—the persons who ultimately own or control the company—to the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN).

    FinCEN.gov/BOI provides guidance to help the small business community understand these requirements and includes:

    Contact FinCEN for more information and answers to any questions.

    The IRS has released final regulations regarding certain user fees that tax return preparers have to pay.  The PTIN fee is now $11, plus $8.75 for the processing fee, for a total of $19.75.

    In 2010 the total fee was $63 and in 2015 the IRS reduced it to $50.  After a flurry of lawsuits and appeals starting in 2017, the Courts determined that the charges need only to be reasonably related to the cost to the agency and the value to the recipient.   In 2023, the court concluded that the PTIN fees for fiscal years 2011 through 2017 were excessive.

    The taxpayer advocate posted a blog last Thursday announcing the IRS has a return processing backlog of more than 29-million tax returns at this point.

    Causes include inability to reprogram IRS computers for late tax law changes Congress passed in December and March, as well as resource overload from additional activities loaded onto the IRS by Congress.

    IRS officials are telling tax professional organizations that taxpayers should not file amended 2020 tax returns at this time to claim the new $10,200 tax exclusion for 2020 payments of unemployment compensation.

    IRS Commission Charles Rettig told a Congressional committee on Thursday, March 18th that he expects the IRS will be able to identify the alread-filed 2020 returns that contain unemployment income and send taxpayers refunds based on the new 2020 exclusion.

    The IRS has finally responded to pleas from members of Congress and tax professional organizations and extended the regular tax filing deadline for 2020 individual income tax returns to May 17, 2021.

    The extension will cover both the filing of an individual 2020 tax return and any 2020 tax due.

    The extension does not apply to other tax returns or payments normally due on April 15th - for example the first quarter 2021 estimated tax payments are still due on April 15th.

    The IRS has announced that further guidance will be provided regarding all the tax deadlines and procedures impacted by the filing extension.

    The IRS has almost 7 million 2020 tax returns with refunds due in a queue for manual processing, which will take several weeks.  So the taxpayers are having to wait for their money.
