Be Organized Throughout the Year

It doesn’t matter if you’re going to do your taxes yourself or if you’re going to take them to an accounting firm. Organization is key. It’ll save you quite a bit of headache if you have everything separated into envelopes, folders, etc. And if you’re taking everything to a tax services firm, having everything organized ahead of time will save you money—many firms will charge by the hour, and the less time they have to spend figuring out your receipts and forms, the less you’ll spend. As you get important forms, receipts, and so on, put them where they belong in your filing system and you’ll save countless time next April!

Avoid Mistakes

We all know that when we’re in a rush, we’re more likely to make mistakes. While some of these mistakes aren’t costly, when it comes to your taxes, you can’t afford to make them! When you’re rushing last minute to comb through your receipts, fill out forms, and take care of other tasks for your filing, you’re likely to miss important information, transpose numbers, and forget things. This could cost you, either through a deduction you could’ve qualified for, or in fines you’ll pay later for the error.

Make Your Tax Appointment Early

The earlier you file your taxes, the earlier you’ll get your refund. And if you owe money to the IRS or to your state government, you’ll have more time to save up for your tax bill. Plus, beating the rush will save you so much stress. Meet with your tax advisor as early as possible so you can get your forms filed (and don’t forget that T.P. Tax offers up to $2500 of your refund when you file with us!).

If You’re Filing Online Yourself…

If you’re filing your taxes on Tax Day like many others, you’re going to run into slow filing times and other errors with the online system. While the IRS and your state’s department of revenue do their best to keep their systems up to date, the sheer volume of people using the system at once can put a huge strain on it. The sooner you file, the less chance you’ll have of missing your deadline!

Take the stress out of filing your taxes when you come to T.P. Tax in Tampa. We will take care of you quickly, and can get you up to $2500 within 24 hours while you wait for your refund. Give us a call for tax preparation services and to use other services of our accounting firm!
