Preparing Your Taxes – CPA vs DIY

Who prepares your tax return? Preparing your own income tax return can be not only frustrating and overwhelming task, but could inadvertently expose you to unwanted risk and penalties.

Today’s tax laws are so complicated that filing a relatively simple return can be daunting. It is just too easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled. Even if you use a computer software program there’s no substitute for the assistance of an experienced tax professional.

Here’s what C.G. Uhlenberg can do for you!

  • Ease the Burden – Your tax return can be filed electronically so you will get a refund back quicker. The process is efficient, provides safeguards and you can concentrate on the management of your business.
  • Reduce Errors – Your tax return will be checked and rechecked by our computer software identifying potential problems the IRS may look at more closely and reviewing the math to limit IRS contacts.
  • Avoid Adverse Consequences – When you sign the end of your tax return, you declare that the information is true and accurate to the best of your knowledge. If the IRS audits your return and finds errors, you could face potentially serious legal consequences. Having a professional prepare your tax return adds a little safeguard to potential liability.
  • Professional Tax Advice – The tax rules are complicated. Before you can use a deduction or credit, you must qualify for it. A tax professional can help find deductions and credits for which you qualify for, and can give advice on certain tax issues. We will show you potential deductions to limit your tax liability for the next year.
