Taxing Cinema: The IRS Goes to Hollywood

×
The untouchablesEvery year, tax season inspires Americans...to gripe, complain, and cross their fingers and pray that they avoid an audit. But rather than focus on the depressing side of your yearly ordeal, why not consider the more enjoyable things that taxes have inspired -- namely, a long list of films. Whether a hapless civil servant, a slick government functionary or a faceless boogeyman who kicks old ladies out of their home, the taxman is usually good for a laugh, a groan, or a scream of abject terror. And, with the Oscars coming this weekend, there's no better time to take a peek at these taxing classics.

What is a 1098-E: Student Loan Interest

If you're currently paying off a student loan, you may get Form 1098-E in the mail from each of your lenders. Your lenders have to report how much interest you pay annually. Student loan interest can be deductible on federal tax returns, but receiving a 1098-E doesn't always mean you're eligible to take the deduction.

Amending Your Income Tax Return

What if you've sent in your income tax return for a previous year and then discover you made a mistake? You can make things right by filing an amended tax return. And, don't think an amended return will automatically cost you money; it's perfectly okay to change a return to capture a tax break you missed the first time around.

How to File Taxes with IRS Form 1099-MISC

If you receive tax form 1099-MISC for services you provide to a client as an independent contractor and the annual payments you receive total $400 or more, you'll need to file your taxes a little differently than a taxpayer who only receives regular employment income reported on a W-2.
