Taxpayers need to wait for their 2020 return to be processed before filing their 2021 return:
False, the reality is that taxpayers should file when they’re ready. People with unprocessed 2020 tax returns, should enter $0 (zero dollars) for last year’s AGI on their 2021 tax return when electronically filing.
Calling the IRS or visiting an IRS office speeds up a refund:
Not true, the best way to check the status of a refund is online through the “Where’s My Refund?” tool at IRS.gov or via the IRS2Go mobile app.
Getting a refund this year means there’s no need to adjust tax withholding for 2022:
Wrong, taxpayers should continually check their withholding and adjust accordingly. Adjusting tax withholding with an employer is easy, and using the Tax Withholding Estimator tool can help taxpayers determine if they are withholding the right amount from their paycheck.
