Albert Einstein once famously remarked, "The hardest thing in the world to understand is income tax." Although this statement may have been in jest (from the person who developed the theory of relativity), it highlights the complicated rules and regulations which have formed our income tax laws.
It seems nearly every year, Congress passes another new tax law. In some years, several new tax laws are passed. Add in the ever-changing state laws, retroactive rules, extenders, phase-ins and phase-outs; and it is easy to become overwhelmed and frustrated.
Today's tax laws are so complicated that unless your financial affairs are extremely simple, chances are you will benefit from at least occasional help from a tax professional. It is too easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled, if you prepare only one return a year. Even the use of computer software is no substitute for the assistance of a seasoned tax preparer.
We prepare hundreds of tax returns every year. We know what to look for when your return is prepared. More importantly, we are here for you; we are ready to answer your questions and assist you during the rest of the year.
