Tips for a Smooth Tax Preparation Experience

While hiring a tax preparer ensures accuracy, some preparation on your part can streamline the filing process. Here are three steps to take before your appointment with Duffy Kruspodin, LLP:

  1. Collect Your Income Information Returns: In January, you’ll start receiving income information from various sources, including employers, investments, retirement distributions, and social security benefits. Verify the accuracy of this information and keep it organized for reference.
  2. Organize Your Receipts: Keep receipts for deductible expenses throughout the year, such as medical costs, property taxes, job-related expenses, and investment-related expenses. Determine whether claiming the standard deduction or itemizing will be more beneficial, and your tax preparer will guide you accordingly.
  3. Gather Charitable Donation Information: If you made charitable contributions, compile a list or gather receipts. For donations of $250 or more, obtain a written acknowledgment from the charity. Consult our office if you have any questions about the records required for charitable donations.
