Preparing your own income tax return can be a task that leaves you with more questions than answers. Like it or not, today’s tax laws are so complicated that filing a relatively simple tax return can be confusing. It is just too easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled, and often times little mistakes can turn into big IRS nightmares. It’s best to leave tax preparation up to the experts.

Tax Return Preparation Services for Businesses
Businesses can take many forms – sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs, S Corporations, and C Corporations. The type of entity that your business is set up under will depend on the federal and state forms you need to complete to meet your tax requirements. LLCs are taxed in many ways, making it even more complex. If your business was formed under the wrong entity type, you may be paying far more taxes than you need to. We can help you with an analysis of options so you can optimize your specific tax situation.
Federal and state tax return preparation is just the beginning for business tax needs. You may also have franchise tax, sales tax, payroll tax, and other industry-specific taxes and licenses that you need to keep up with. Managing all your tax deadlines can be a big job that distracts you from more important things you have to do to run your business. We take pride in staying on top of tax deadlines for our clients, so you don’t have to stress about them. We can prepare and file the tax returns that are required for your business. We will look hard for every deduction possible, discuss with you your options, and perform your tax compliance work accurately and on time.
Tax Return Preparation Services for Nonprofit Organizations
Nonprofit tax-exempt organizations have annual IRS return requirements too. They may not need to pay taxes, but they do need to file an information return, the Form 990, with the IRS each year. From 990 includes information on the nonprofit organization’s purpose, finances, and programs. If your nonprofit needs help preparing and filing their form 990, give us a call.
Tax Returns That Have Not Been Filed on Time
Are you late filing a tax return? Have you missed a few years and want to get caught up? We can help you prepare and file prior year tax returns. If you have challenges with lost records, we can help you through the process. It’s easier than you may think. Sometimes all the worry you’ve built up during the time that you haven’t filed can be bigger in your mind than it is if you just get help now to get it done. Take the first step and call us. When your return is late, there are two penalties: failure to pay and failure to file. These penalties only get larger the more time you wait. The best option is to get professional help to work out a payment plan with the IRS or the state. With tax professionals like us negotiating for you, it is common to get a portion of the amount due forgiven.
Tax Returns That Need to Be Amended
There are many reasons a tax return needs to be amended. There may have been an error made when it was originally filed. It could be that a tax law changed, and amending a return puts the taxpayer in a better position. In any case, if you need to amend a return for any reason, we can help you.
If you receive a letter from the IRS, we can help you interpret what they need you to do next. The letter could be a standard routine notice or it could be something bigger like an audit. In either case, we are here year-round to help.
