With tax season over, it’s time to revisit some of the things that people may have missed during the season. Although it’s becoming a very big trend for many to do their own taxes, there’s the reality that sometimes, it does become too much. With that being said, there are a few things one must note prior to doing their own taxes, and what you can do, should any red flags raise due to your counting.
- Make sure the numbers are perfect. This typically goes without saying, but sometimes, it’s a good idea to give it a 3rd, maybe 4th check over. Numbers can drastically change with the wrong placement of a comma, or an extra number, and this can be crucial to consistently having the best shot at avoiding an audit.
- Consult an attorney. If you’ve been audited, contact your accountant — or, contact a tax attorney. In both cases, these individuals will have an understanding of what you can and cannot do during this process. Likewise, your tax attorney will have a good understanding of your deductions, especially if you are required to itemize them. This greatly helps when it comes to how much tax you actually have to pay.
