Tax deadline is April 15, don’t panic about tax preparation in Mesa Az

Photo of author — March, 28, 2013) Mesa, AZ — First, you can get an automatic 6 months extension from the IRS by filing form 4868. You can do this yourself, or talk to a tax preparer.

Next, you can file your own taxes if you have a very straightforward return and no deductions and your AGI is $57,000 or less. Go to the IRS website and search for Free File Tax Software.

Or, if you have deductions you can claim, it is best to talk to a professional tax preparer. Call a good one now.  Your cost for tax prep is deductible.

Be prepared. It’s best if you show up for your tax appointment with some of the number-crunching already done, and bring the paperwork you will need such as partnership or corporate returns, W-2s and 1099s, Schedule K-1s, your company’s income statement and balance sheet, plus receipts for any fixed assets you’ve purchased in 2012, tuition statements, quarterly self-employment tax payments in 2012, homeowners’ insurance, mortgage, utilities, maintenance for home office deductions, business miles, repairs, fuel, oil changes, the sales receipt, state sales tax you paid, and other expenses for your vehicle.

A Tax Preparer can help you if you want to set up an IRA or a SEP-IRA and reduce your tax liability until April 15 or even later if you file for an extension on your return.
