Yearly changes to the tax code and your lifestyle necessitate help from a tax preparer every time April rolls around. You might have a new addition to the family, a new rental property, or new investments that will need to be incorporated when filing your income tax. Your situation could be complicated, and if you don’t have a working, up-to-date knowledge of federal and state tax code, you could make costly mistakes and miss out on benefits you didn’t even know existed. Investing in a tax preparer will save you money in the long run in many ways.
A tax preparer can help you save thousands of dollars by utilizing deductions most people who self-file are unaware of. Did you donate to charity or refinance your house this year? Did you pay a health insurance premium or have investment expenses? You may be eligible for a laundry list of deductions that can save you big, including deductions for your tax-planning expenses.
First-time homebuyers, college students, low-wage income earners, retirees, and working parents can all qualify for tax credits that could save the filer thousands of dollars. A tax preparer can determine whether you are eligible to receive a credit or hunt down potential credits that you are missing out on.
Common errors made while filing tax return forms can be avoided by having a second pair of eyes look over your paperwork. Incorrect or missing Social Security numbers, incorrect filing status, information entered on the wrong line, and mathematical errors will delay the processing of your return.
A tax professional really comes in handy when you have a side business that needs to be accounted for. Many people make costly mistakes when it comes to bookkeeping, such as including loans to their business as income, declaring profits as wages, and expensing assets that should depreciated.
