Before beginning your tax return, here
are a few things you should know to make preparing and
filing your return easier and less stressful.
Social Security Numbers
It is important that you have the
correct social security number and date of birth for each
person you will claim as an exemption on your return. If
each name, social security number, and date of birth do not
match exactly when you file the return, the IRS will reject
your return and ask you to submit the correct information.
