You need to work with someone who has the experience necessary to minimize your taxes while remaining in compliance with IRS rules.

Tax preparation is the process of gathering, organizing and reporting your final taxable income. Items necessary to begin your tax return include all proof of income forms such as W-2, 1099, and information on capital gains. You will also need any forms received with interest income paid to you, rents, and any other form of income you might have received during the tax year. In addition, you should gather all receipts for expenses such as mortgage payments, taxes paid, medical expenses, and more. If you own a business, there is an extensive list of items you will need to have ready to prepare for your tax return filing. 

Tax prep services performed by a professional tax accountant will ensure that tax laws are followed and that you are given all tax breaks allowed. Chandler and Knowles can provide you with an all-inclusive list of items you may need as part of your tax preparation.

Tax Preparation Vs Tax Planning

As we have already stated, tax prep is the act of gathering and organizing the information for your tax filing. When doing tax preparation, a CPA will use the information you provide to fill in the blanks and plug-in formulas to determine your final tax liability. Advice can be offered for the future year but the tax return for the present year remains the same.

On the contrary, tax planning is useful for future returns. Tax planning is an ongoing, proactive, strategic plan that will help you make the most of your tax write-offs and deductions. A talented tax planner will help you put together a long term tactic for reducing your taxable income and deferring taxes until a later date. Tax planning is a legal way for taxpayers to use tax law to their advantage. Tax strategists know and understand the importance of planning for future tax savings.

High-income individuals have complicated and detailed tax returns. That is why it is important to hire an experienced, educated CPA who can not only guide you through the preparation phase but also spot areas where you can make tax-free investments and allocate income appropriately. At Chandler & Knowles CPAs we can assist with tax planning and offer year-round tax services as well. We work with you to protect your present income and plan for your future savings.

How to Choose A Tax Preparation Service

We recommend choosing our tax professionals over a DIY tax preparation software. Our CPAs have years of experience and solutions to fit your individual needs. Items like deductions and other tax strategies are often missed using basic softwares. In order to choose the best tax preparer this year we recommend you evaluate:

  • Areas of expertise
  • Awards and accolades
  • Electronic filing capabilities
  • Reviews and recommendations
