As the April 15 deadline draws closer, Americans across the country prepare for the hours of agony that completing their tax returns represent. Of course, it doesn’t have to be this way—because the team at Polston Tax is standing by to help!
If you have never considered hiring a qualified professional to assist you with your tax returns, you may be surprised by the benefits that you are missing out on. Below are the top three reasons to consider hiring a professional to help you prepare your tax returns in 2012:
- You should hire an expert if you’d like to save time this year. Properly completing tax returns for an individual or a business takes a substantial amount of time even for a qualified professional. If you haven’t been trained in tax law, the process takes substantially longer. Hiring a professional eliminates that headache—and you can spend the hours that you’ll save doing something that you enjoy!
- You should hire an expert if you’d like to maximize your deductions this year. Most adults have the ability to complete their own taxes. Technically speaking, they don’t need a professional. But then again, most adults have the ability to swing a golf club—but that doesn’t mean they can play like Tiger Woods did back in his prime. The point is that there is a big difference between getting your taxes done, and getting them done in a way that maximizes deductions and results in the lowest possible bill. The experts at Polston will ensure that you pay no more this year than what is absolutely required by law.
- You should hire an expert if you’d like to minimize the likelihood of an audit. Few things sound less appealing to the average taxpayer than the prospect of an IRS audit! Tax experts know how to spot red flags that may increase your likelihood of facing an audit—and no matter how intelligent an individual may be, without years of experience it will be nearly impossible to spot these red flags. Work with a professional this year and minimize your chances of facing an audit!
