Share Something You Wish You Had Known Before Filing Your Taxes

Hey, we live and we learn.

We are *officially* in April, and that typically means that for Americans who made money last year, tax day is upon us (though, the federal tax filing deadline has been moved to May 17 this year due to the pandemic). Ngl, filing taxes can sometimes get complicated, and it can be easy to make a mistake (totes okay; we live and we learn!).

So tell us about a tax filing mistake you've made that you want others to avoid.

Maybe you forgot to set aside 30% of your small business income for taxes and you wound up having to scramble to find the money to cover the amount owed.

Or perhaps you once waited till the last minute to file and ran into some complications — which then resulted in you missing the deadline.

Or maybe you once tried filing on your own and ended up doing the math all wrong (and you've since vowed to go straight to an expert).

Head to the comments and share a tax filing mistake you've made (or something you wish you had known about filing taxes). And if you wish to remain anonymous, you can submit your response through this Google Form instead. You could be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post.
