  • Newark, NJ (1888PressRelease) March 25, 2020 - Michael H. Karu, CPA/CFF, Member, Levine Jacobs & Company, LLC, offers insight into the process of switching from joint to separate filing as a married couple during tax season.

    In the article, ‘How do I get proper credit for estimated tax payments?’, published by NJ.com and NJMoneyHelp, Karu highlighted the complications that can arise from changing how the IRS allocates the credit for paid taxes between spouses and the best way to ensure that both individuals get the necessary credit.

    Karu counsels to be as specific as possible in the request and to include copies of the estimated tax payments. “To have the payments applied in the manner you prefer, you must contact the IRS directly, either by phone or by mail. Certified mail works the best because you have a record of exactly what was requested,” he advised.
