This is very important! When sending or bringing in your documents to have your taxes prepared please do not leave out any of your income for the year! All of your income is reported to the IRS so leaving some income off now to qualify for a bigger refund can catch up with you immediately if the IRS adjusts your taxes, or later when they adjust them and send you a bill. It does not matter if you did not pay taxes on the income received, it still has to be reported. All W2 income, 1099 misc income, 1099R, 1099INT, social security, 1099C, unemployment, and any other 1099 income must be included. Save yourself the trouble of having IRS issues later by including all of your income when your taxes are prepared!
