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, most taxpayers (77% of 71 million taxpayers) believe they benefited from using a professional tax preparer.
Whether we like it or not, today’s tax laws are so complicated that filing a relatively simple return can be confusing. It is just too easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled. Even if you use a computer software program there’s no substitute for the assistance of an experienced tax professional.
Here’s what you get…
- Your tax return will be prepared by one accountant and checked by another. We send out tax organizers showing all of the prior year’s income and deductions; then you have a starting point to gather your paperwork for the current year. We sit with you to ask questions and review your tax situation. If you don’t have time to come in for an appointment, you can drop off your information or send it by mail or e-mail. We’ll review everything and call with questions before we finalize your return. We use leading computer software to prepare your return.
- We file all personal returns electronically, unless you opt out, which allows you to get your refund back sooner.
- We can show you potential deductions and help you plan in order to limit your tax liability for next year.
