Referrals! We would like you to pass our name to someone you think may benefit from our services. For those of you doing so, make sure we know about it.
In compiling the information for your 2017 tax preparation, please review your return from 2016. Please make sure that all of the social security numbers, name spellings, addresses and birth dates are correct.
If you have brokerage accounts, please bring in your 1099-DIV, 1099-INT and 1099-B forms. The Internal Revenue Service is very good at matching income reported to them with income you report to us. In the past few years we have seen a dramatic increase in letters from them with income that has slipped through the cracks. Please make sure you report all security sales to Internal Revenue Service. In addition to reporting the sale it is very important to report your purchase price. Please bring with you the cost of the securities you sold as well as the date you bought them.
Being well organized
is one way to help keep your fee lower.
Bringing your W-2’s, 1099’s, mortgage interest statements, making sure
your expenses are sorted and totaled, these are all time savers for us which
ultimately saves you money, not only in your fee but on your tax return. Please use our tax organizer.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is still in affect for 2017. Please let us know, were you and your family covered by medical insurance?
