Cada abril, muchos contribuyentes esperan hasta el último minuto para presentar sus declaraciones de impuestos federales. Más allá de esta tendencia, hay muchas razones para presentar antes tus declaraciones de impuestos. Si vas a recibir un reembolso, quizás quieras presentar tu declaración tan rápido como sea posible. Además, existen beneficios para aquellos contribuyentes que tienen un saldo a pagar y presentan antes su declaración de impuestos.

Reembolsos más rápidos

Una de las razones más comunes para presentar antes las declaraciones de impuestos es para recibir un reembolso más rápido. Si presentas tu declaración de impuestos de forma electrónica, puedes conseguir tu reembolso directamente depositado en tu cuenta bancaria en tan poco tiempo como ocho días. Aquellos contribuyentes que presentan su declaración en papel generalmente consiguen sus reembolsos dentro de las seis a ocho semanas, por lo tanto, siempre es mejor presentarlo de forma electrónica si quieres recibir el reembolso rápidamente.

Tiempo de más para el saldo a pagar

Si tienes un saldo a pagar ante el IRS, puedes tener una buena razón para presentar tu declaración lo antes posible. Si la presentas a mediados de enero, no tendrás que pagar tu saldo hasta el vencimiento de la presentación a mediados de abril. Preparar tu formulario 1040 de forma temprana te dará tiempo para arreglar tu pago. Este tiempo de más es particularmente útil a los contribuyentes que necesitan averiguar exactamente cuánto deben al IRS.

Obtener información financiera

Si estás esperando un gran cambio de vida como comprar una casa o volver a la universidad, preparar tu declaración de impuestos de forma temprana te puede ayudar a obtener la información esencial. Los estudiantes universitarios utilizan la información de su formulario 1040 para solicitar una ayuda financiera mientras que los compradores de vivienda potenciales a menudo tienen que mostrar su declaración de impuestos completa como prueba de los ingresos de su hogar. Conseguir tener hecha tu declaración de impuestos de forma temprana (ya sea que debas dinero o esperes un reembolso) te da una ventaja en el papeleo que necesitas para estos procesos.

Evitar una extensión

Presentar tu declaración de impuestos de forma temprana te puede ayudar a eliminar la necesidad de presentar una extensión. Las extensiones de tiempo a menudo se requieren como resultado de una desorganización más que por una necesidad financiera. Algunas personas que esperan hasta el último minuto para presentar su declaración de impuestos simplemente necesitan tiempo para buscar deducciones adicionales o reunir recibos. Llevar el proceso muy cerca del vencimiento de la presentación y aumentarás la probabilidad de que necesites ayuda de un profesional de impuestos para que te ayude a sortear tus finanzas y te ayude a completar tu declaración. Lo que es peor, si presentas una extensión y debes un saldo, el IRS te cobrará intereses y sanciones en la deuda tributaria pendiente hasta que esté pagada en su totalidad. Preparar tu declaración de impuestos de forma temprana en el año te ayudará a evitar esta situación.
