As the April 15 deadline draws closer, Americans across the country prepare for the hours of work it takes to complete their tax returns. Of course, it doesn’t have to be this way because the team at Polston Tax is standing by to help!
When you hire a tax professional, you can skip the headache of completing your tax return on your own and save yourself the time you would’ve otherwise spent on your taxes.
A tax preparer can be especially helpful when your taxes are complicated. Having a tax professional handle your preparation and return can be a huge relief if you:
- Are self-employed.
- Own rental property.
- Purchased a home.
- Received an inheritance.
- Moved to a new state.
- Recently got married.
Why Hire a Tax Preparer
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:
1. Save Time
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 and studying the tax code can be incredibly time-consuming.
Whether you feel overwhelmed by your taxes or are short on time, hiring a professional eliminates that headache — and you can spend the hours that you’ll save doing something that you enjoy! By reaching out to a tax attorney at Polston Tax, you can hand us the reins and let us simplify the process for you.
2. Maximize Your Deductions
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 tax professionals at Polston Tax will ensure that you pay no more this year than what is absolutely required by law. We may even be able to help you save money by identifying new potential deductions. We can also help you plan and maximize your savings for next year. A professional with knowledge of the tax code can help you save significantly, especially if you have a complicated tax situation.
You’ll also get an additional benefit from hiring a tax preparer — you can deduct your preparer’s fee on next year’s tax return!
3. 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. 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!
