4 Tips for Tax Preparation Success!

We know that Brandon residents like to make money, but thoughts of the IRS and 1040’s can make some people cringe. Tax preparation is essential, but it isn’t everyone’s strength. There are detailed documents, deadlines, and so many consequences if even one particular is out of line. This is stressful, so leave it to professional preparers. The experts at Garcia & Cuadra have some advice for folks filing in Hillsborough County.

1. Get a Head Start

Instead of waiting until January (or worse, April), make it a point to maintain your documentation all year long. That way, you’re not scrambling to locate paperwork or last year’s returns in the face of a looming deadline. If you plan to hire a tax preparation service, do so ahead of time, because prices will rise as the month of January approaches. Also, the more you procrastinate, the less likely you are to get the best in the business. Don’t delay! Start your search early.

2. Consider Filing Online

Even if you’ve never had a problem filing your paperwork in Brandon, you should consider online options. Gone are the days of stamping and sending your papers by post. Not only is it a growing trend, but it is also:

  • Convenient
  • Immediate
  • Organized
  • Environment-friendly

No more tracking down loose papers to misplaced W2s. Once you’ve entered your personal information, it is stored and saved until you’re ready to submit. Once you do, you have the knowledge that your input was immediately received. By mail, you cannot guarantee that your envelope will arrive on time or at all. Save the expense of a stamp and go paperless!

3. File for a Direct Deposit

People overlook return specifications when it comes to tax preparation, and some individuals in Brandon are attached to the idea of receiving a check in the mail. However, a direct deposit is far more efficient, and you’ll likely get it sooner than by mail. Who doesn’t want to get their return earlier? Release your past habits and embrace the forward movement of direct deposits!

4. Choose Garcia and Cuadra for Tax Preparation

Perhaps the most beneficial choice Hillsborough County residents can make would be hiring professional preparers to ease the load. Your life is full in Brandon, and the ins and outs of tax preparation are complicated. Don’t let stress mount as the due date looms nearer. If you miss one blank or write down the wrong amount, you could suffer the consequences under the sharp eye of the IRS. Instead, get ahead by calling 813-415-2431 to set up a consultation with Garcia & Cuadra. We will complete the paperwork correctly and do so well ahead of schedule!
