When Should a Company Hire a Tax Relief Firm?
It is a question often asked by individual taxpayers, small businesses and even large companies. Should we hire a tax firm or tax professional to help with the annual tax return? Many take pride in doing their own taxes, but at the same time feel a significant amount of stress about the potential for errors and the threat of being audited. If you have been weighing the idea of whether you should continue to do your own taxes (or your company’s taxes) or to partner with a professional tax firm, here are some helpful tip about a tax professional can help your business:
- Record Keeping: This is one of the most difficult aspects of tax preparation, and as your business grows, the mountain of paperwork also grows. A tax professional can help you set up a system for managing the paperwork all year long.
- Advice and information: A tax professional will be able to provide you with advice and guidance about your annual tax return and suggest potential deductions and credits that you may qualify for. A tax professional will be up to date on the most current tax law, so you can be confident that your return is correct and free from errors.
- Red Flags: A tax professional can highlight red flags that the IRS might find BEFORE your return is submitted so that you reduce your overall audit risk. In addition, they can be very helpful if your business happens to be chosen for an audit.
- Communicating on your behalf with the IRS: There are instances—in addition to audits—when the IRS will have questions about your return. A tax professional can manage all communication on your behalf with the IRS and often resolve any potential issue before it progresses to an audit.
Other Important Tips for Hiring A Tax Professional
You will benefit greatly from partnering with a tax company that does business all year round, not just in tax season. This is a sign that they have a strong client base and have longstanding experience. Before you hire a company, you should do your homework, see if you can get a sense of other client satisfaction, even interview and ask for (and check) references. Take your time making this big decision and if you have concerns, do not ignore them. This is a big step for your business and you want to be sure that you choose a tax firm that is reputable, experienced and can meet your unique tax needs.
