Tax Preparation

The reason many individuals and business owners don’t prepare their own Tax returns themselves, according to a study performed by the US Government’s General Accounting Office is “… because they found IRS tax forms and documents too complicated or they were confronting an unusually complicated tax situation. Thus, the taxpayers in our survey may not understand the tax laws well enough …” The other reasons cited was the lack of time and patience, filing errors, inaccuracies and overpaying their taxes. Today’s tax laws are complicated and many times confusing for the layperson. Even a simple tax return can often have confusing choices and result in overlooked deductions, credits and arithmetic errors.
