How Hiring a Tax Preparer Helps Small Business OwnersPosted on February 18th, 2015
When your business taxes are handled the right way, you can rest easy knowing that you’ve done everything the IRS has required of you, and have taken advantage of all deductions possible. This level of confidence isn’t always attainable by doing taxes on your own, which is why hiring an outside accounting professional does wonders at tax time.
Here’s how we can help small business owners make tax season work for them:
Decrease Chances of an Audit – There are many things you can do to avoid getting your business tax return audited by the IRS; refrain from claiming personal deductions or use an online tax form. However, the truth is that visiting a skilled accountant is the best way to avoid scrutiny from the IRS. We’re able to efficiently review your returns for errors and use our intimate knowledge of the tax code to ensure compliance.
All Relevant Tax Documents Can Be Ready in Advance – Professional tax preparers can help your business get accurate tax filing help, and can also help your business develop an effective tax plan. Whether that plan includes supplementing tax preparation with bookkeeping or other accounting services, getting help from an experienced accountant allows you to have all of your information organized up-front to be better prepared for tax time.
Review of Last Year’s Tax Return – It’s possible to have your previous tax year information reviewed and amended, to take advantage of any missed deductions. If you bring us your prior year tax information, we can help you fill in anything you may have overlooked.
Tax Audit Assistance – If the IRS has selected you for an audit, we’re in your corner with expert advice and assistance. We take point on tax problem resolution and communicate directly with the IRS, so you don’t have to.
