With less than a month to go until tax day you should at least have already made an appointment with your tax prep company. If you have not already filed your taxes and do not think you will be able to do it in time you should file a tax extension as soon as possible. The best way to do this is to have your tax preparer do it for you, but then you may as well get all your taxes done while you are in there?
I Am Too Busy To Do Taxes
Small businessmen use this excuse all the time. I say excuse because it is not a reason, we all know we have to pay taxes so the time to prepare the paperwork has to be made. It is easy to think that whatever you are doing right now is more important than anything else but the reality is that you have to file your taxes and the sooner you do them the less painful it will be.
Prepare for your meeting in advance and it really will go quickly, yes you will lose the money you would have made on an appointment but you will gain the peace of mind that your taxes are done. You also will reduce your stress levels by being finished with taxes for another year.
Should not be your first option, if you are filing tax extensions every year you really should look into your organizational process.
If you need help with your business or personal taxes, to prepare them or file an extension just give us a call and we will help you through it all.
