It is not because we don’t trust you. First, it is a requirement for our due diligence as a preparer. Second, there are sometimes items on the previous return that need to be carried forward or used in comparison. Did you claim mileage utilizing the standard deduction or actual costs? Are you currently depreciating any assets? Do you have a capital loss carry forward? Can you answer these questions off the top of your head? …Sometimes it is easier to look at the previous year’s return. 😀
We defend any return we prepare free of charge. Any penalties or interest that are due to our mistakes, we pay. Our integrity is our most valued asset. You won’t find many tax offices like that!
As a side note, we also keep copies of everything you send us in PDF format. In the event of an audit, we will have most of the information we need. In the event that you have all of your records lost or destroyed, we can give you copies of all of your returns, old W2s, etc., free of charge.
We prefer emails for quick questions. Please email us and if we’re able to answer your questions we will! If not, we’ll let you know if you need to schedule a tax home or a preparer consult.We are unable to answer questions related to the use of tax software programs.
If you are calling to talk about establishing or maintaining a tax home, you may schedule a tax home consult here. Remember that tax home issues can create a major tax liability if not handled correctly.
