Small Business Accounting Services that Break the Industry Stereotypes

Small Business Accounting Services

Accountants make business life easier as a company grows and changes over time.  As a small business, finances can become complex rather quickly if you do it on your own.  You can easily lose track and an accountant can help you stay on the right course.  They can swiftly handle tasks that are delegated to them, and can share financial information with you through cloud-based accounting software.

Most Americans can expect a tax refund this year. By-and-large, most working people will fill out form 1040 and wait patiently for a reply from the IRS. But if you’d like a little extra incentive to get your taxes done this year, and perhaps add a few deductions along the way, then we can help. In this post, we’ll give you some often overlooked tax tips and provide you with some direction for an easy and lucrative year.
  • Consider an increased or decreased withholding on your W4. Whether you selected 0, 1, or more on your W4, changes how taxes are removed from your paychecks. Reducing the number of exemptions will increase your refund.
  • Make sure that your filing status is accurate. If you are unsure, talk to a tax specialist about what the correct status is for you. Single, head of household, married filing separately or jointly, for example, changes how your taxes and deductions are figured.
  • Deduct familial obligations, like dependent care or associated costs. Also, consider talking to a tax preparer about how to deduct particular family and personal healthcare costs. Even the smallest change can dramatically increase your refund.
  • If you are unsure where to start, speak to a tax professional about using current tax law as a means to increase your refund. By talking to a tax accountant now, instead of waiting until next year, you can set up a system to monitor current tax laws and keep a close eye on how they affect you.
  • If you missed the boat this year, set up some tax planning measures next year by talking to a tax professional or by using an applicable tax software program. Every little bit helps when it comes time to file your taxes.
