Preparing your own income tax return can be a task that leaves you with more questions than answers. According to a study released by the US Government's General Accounting Office, the overwhelming majority of taxpayers (77% of 71 million) believe they benefited from using a professional tax preparer.
We seek to be your long-term partner in managing this important aspect of your finances. Some years, your returns will be straight-forward, but some years there will be significant issues, and you are best served with a knowledgeable professional who knows you and is on your side.
Like it or not, today's tax laws are so complicated that even filing a relatively simple return can be confusing. It is easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled. Even a computer software program is no substitute for the assistance of an experienced tax professional.
Here's some of the services you get...
Your tax return will be checked and rechecked by our computer software and our team, identifying potential problems that the IRS may look at more closely.
Your tax returns, federal and state, will be filed electronically so you can get your refund back more quickly (if you're getting a refund!).
Our staff will show you how to adjust your payroll withholding to meet your desires: some people like to get a big refund each spring, but some want to come as close to "break even" as possible. It's best to avoid owing a large amount, as that can incur penalties and interest, and we can help with these issues.
We will show you potential deductions to limit your tax liability for next year, and will ask you about items from the prior year to be sure you get every deduction and credit you are legally entitled to.
Your business Books in a Mess? No Problem!
If you own a small business and haven't kept up your bookkeeping, don't worry. We can help you. We'll prepare your bookkeeping for the year, prepare a full Schedule C, as well as your personal income tax return. Then we'll help you set up an easy system that allows you to keep your books in tip-top shape next year.
