"...This is an excellent program. I'm so glad that I stumbled on to this when researching for task management programs. Very low learning curv, quite flexible, and the price is right. Tried at least 20 other programs, either too complicated, too expensive, or poor documentation..."

  • Financial assets including dividend income statements, interest income statements, proceeds from broker transactions, tax refunds, unemployment compensation, miscellaneous income, retirement plan distribution, distributions from medical savings accounts.
  • Financial liabilities including auto loans and leases (account numbers and car value) if vehicle is used for business, qualified tuition, student loan paid, early withdrawal penalties (CDs IRAs, etc) and other time deposits.
  • Expenses: medical expenses, charitable donations, expenses related to your job like travel expenses, uniforms, union dues, subscriptions, expenses related to volunteer work, investments expenses, child care, adoption, tax return preparation expenses and fees.
  • Business-related taxes including state income taxes, real estate taxes, sales taxes, employment taxes, invoices or billings, payroll records.
  • Self-employment data including receipts or documentation for business-related expenses, non-employment compensation, partnership SE income, farm income.
  • Ongoing business costs including telephone and Internet fees, travel expenses, office and equipment maintenance, advertising and marketing expenses, software fees, rental payments.
  • Deduction documents including federal, state and local estimated taxes paid for current year, estimated tax vouchers, casualty or theft losses, cancelled checks and other payment records.
  • Automobile expenses including miles driven for business, repairs and gasoline.

Tax preparation tips:

  • Keep a mileage logbook of distance travelled, in order to accurately determine your travel deduction.
  • Keep records including invoices and statements of medical expenses which are not covered by your medical insurance, in order to get a deduction for those expenses on assessment.
  • You may outsource your tax chores by engaging special services, but you need to be accurate. Request about education which such outsourcing specialists possess, there are various designations: certified public accountant (CPA); tax attorney; enrolled agent (EA); accredited tax preparer (ATP); accredited tax advisor (ATA).
  • If you would like to get paid assistance you should carefully learn and compare the rates which you will be charged to.
  • Don’t miss any deductions by organizing accurate record keeping. This will prevent you from paying additional taxes and penalties for unsubstantiated items. Legally you need only to keep tax records for three years but you can keep a copy of the returns in case you need information.
  • Economize your time with filling the forms electronically (online service). Use software to keep your records. There are a lot of different programs; you need to make overview reasoning from your taxpaying needs.
  • Be aware of deadlines in order to avoid penalties (you may use organizers like VIP Organizer to avoid procrastinations). Tax returns must be submitted before the due date given by the IRS.
  • You may take training from an authorized consulting company to know how you should prepare your tasks in details.
