Submitting the eQuip tomorrow and need to:
- File the current year’s taxes (I got an extension through 10/2019, but then moved and didn’t get a chance to complete) - I plan to do this in the next 24 hours before submission.
- Complete 13A for last 10 years employment
My primary concern is that I have a pretty bad memory and can’t recall the many different jobs I had when I was younger. Last night, I took a stab at 13A and was able to retrace the last 5 years – primarily from searching my email for offer letters and payroll notifications. But the first half of the last decade is really a blur. I am sure that much (if not more than half) of that time I was freelancing in IT/digital and self-employed.
So, what do I do if I can’t remember? I pulled my credit reports to see what employment was listed (not more than 2-3 employers) and some of those were outside of the decade date range anyway. Where else can I look for this information? I don’t even have my tax docs from that far back.
I was thinking that I can call the IRS and ask them to email me a summary tomorrow to see if I can identify additional employers that way?
Oh… one other question: I dated a foreign national very briefly (Belgian of Serbian birth) and listed him as a foreign contact. I was in physical contact with him for less than a total of 10 days across all visits to Europe. Do I really need to list him?
