Taxes - Who Should I Turn To?

Feb 11, 2008
There is nothing worse that being stuck behind your computer reading and rereading the do it yourself taxes box, with a stack of tax documents spread all over your kitchen table. Before you get into this type of a mess, just take the one simple step of calling your personal accountant.

This relatively inexpensive step will ease the stress that comes with that tax return and simplify your financial tax filing issues. Now, you might wonder why someone would hire a professional when it is possible to accomplish this task on their own.

Let's compare the results to that of a professional faux paint job. The result is less stress, less mess, and the security of know things were accomplished the right way to bring the best results possible. Just like you would use a professional painter to gorgeously decorate your home, you should use an accountant to file your taxes.

If you own your own business, you will definitely want to hire the help of a professional accountant. Business owners can verify that using a professional will help lower your chances of forgetting business expenses and low your chance of an audit.

Here's how simply your accountant makes filing your taxes. They will require you to drop off all of your tax documents. This includes any bank or investment fund income statements, any W-2's that you receive from employers, and any mortgage interest documents.

If you have questions about any document you might be forgetting you accountant can help you with these answers. One you have all of the documents, you can deliver them to your accountant and they will get to work. You might consider packing your documents in a folder labeled with your name to help them out.

Your accountant will prepare your taxes for you and will call you when your documents are ready to be reviewed. When you look at your tax filing documents, look for any mistakes. Your accountant will probably help you find expenses for your personal business, if you own one.

Your accountant will file your tax documents electronically, just as you might from home to help speed things up. You should receive your tax return or other statement in just a few weeks after completing your taxes.

With this in mind, it is important to give your accountant enough time to complete your taxes. Don't take your documents to their office two days before they are due and expect them to get filed on time. They are not speed demons, they are accountants.

Remember that these accountants have been trained and tested to obtain this title of an accountant. You should be able to trust your accountant on all financial matters. If you are uncomfortable with your accountant, go ahead and find one you trust.

Don't let this information keep you from filing your taxes yourself. If you have very simple finances, go ahead and file your documents yourself. Once you start getting more tax documents, you will realize that now is the time to turn to a professional accountant.
