The end of the year is fast approaching and it will soon be time to file your taxes.
In order to submit your tax return, you first need a W-2 form, or Wage and Tax statement, from every employer you had during 2019. If you’re a freelancer, you’ll need 1099 forms.
Employers typically must file and postmark tax-related documents by January 31, so you should receive your forms by early February 2020. But if you receive all your forms before then, you can file your tax return as soon as you’d like.
The deadline for filing your 2019 tax return is Wednesday, April 15, 2020.
