Common errors on a tax return can lead to longer processing times
When a tax return has errors, like typos or math mistakes, it can lead to longer processing times and frustration for taxpayers. Many common errors are easy to avoid by carefully reviewing the tax return.
Before filing their tax return, taxpayers should review their return for a few common issues.
Incorrect filing status
Errors in names, birth dates and Social Security numbers
If a dependent or spouse does not have a Social Security number and isn’t eligible to get one, taxpayers can apply for an Individual Tax Identification Number and list that instead.
Not answering the digital assets question
Incorrect routing and account numbers
Taxpayers can also use their refund to purchase U.S. Savings Bonds.
Not signing and dating the return
