Do I need to file a tax return?
You must file a tax return if your income is greater than the standard deduction for your filing status and age. It is important to remember that filing a tax return could be in your best interest even if you are not technically required to do so. As always, you should contact our office or check the IRS website to find out if you need to file a return and get the most current information about tax filing requirements.
What documents do I need to do my taxes?
Most individuals will need a W-2 from their employer or a 1099-MISC if you are self-employed. You will also need information such as social security numbers and birthdates for you, your spouse, and your dependents. Our office will send you a tax organizer to assist you in gathering your tax documents
Is an e-filed return safe?
Yes, most consider e-filing a safer practice than mailing a return. We recommend you e-file your tax return when possible so you will receive your refund faster.
