Tax Return

This year’s tax deadline may have come and gone already but it’s never too early to start planning for next years tax return filing With that in mind, here are six things you can do now to make next April 15 easier.

1. Adjust your withholding: Why wait another year for a big refund? Now is a good time to review your withholding and make adjustments for next year, especially if you’d prefer more money in each paycheck this year. If you owed at tax time, perhaps you’d like next year’s tax payment to be smaller.

Give The Starace Accounting Firm a call if you need assistance in adjusting your withholding.

2. Store your tax return in a safe place: Put your 2012 tax return and supporting documents somewhere secure so you’ll know exactly where to find them if you receive an IRS notice and need to refer to your return. You can also use it as a helpful guide for next year’s return.

3. Organize your tax return record keeping: Establish a central location where everyone in your household can put tax-related records all year long. Anything from a shoebox to a file cabinet works. Just be consistent to avoid a scramble for misplaced receipts come tax time. Failure To Plan Ahead Can Cost You Valuable Deductions On Your Tax Return!

4. Review your paycheck: Make sure your employer is properly withholding and reporting retirement account contributions, health insurance payments, charitable payroll deductions and other items. These payroll adjustments can make a big difference on your bottom line. Fixing an error in your paycheck now gets you back on track before it becomes a huge hassle and delay filing your tax return.

5. Consult us early: Use The Starace Accounting Firm to help you strategize, plan and make financial decisions throughout the year, then contact us now. You’ll have more time when you’re not up against a deadline or anxious for your refund.

An early or extra mortgage payment, pre-deadline property tax payments, planned donations or strategically paid medical bills could equal some tax savings. If you need help with tax planning for 2013 please give us a call. We can help you prepare your tax return with an approach that works best for you.
