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.
