Why You Should Hire an Accountant to Manage Your Taxes

Taxes can be filed in a variety of manners whether you do it yourself, through a tax software system or through an accountant. For the 2015 tax season and for future tax seasons, an accountant is a wonderful resource that can save you time, stress and money, especially if you own your own business. If you’re unsure of whether this is right for you, we have listed reasons why hiring an accountant may be in your best interest.

1. Tax Fraud

Tax season is a prime time for scammers to steal others’ identities by phone, e-mail or direct mail. They do this by filing a return on your behalf and claiming a tax refund for themselves. These scams typically happen to those who choose to file taxes on their own without the assistance of an accountant. However, by teaming up with an accounting firm, you can have a peace of mind that your taxes will be filed promptly and correctly.

2. Tax Savings

Whether you file your taxes as an individual or as a business, there are many tax breaks available that can reduce your IRS tax bill. An accountant can ensure that you claim all the tax deductions and credits that apply to you.

3. Specialized Individual Treatment

Not all tax payers are the same. Each one is unique in respect to their income, filing status, expenditures, dependents and other factors. An accountant permits clients to feel as though they are getting one-on-one treatment that is especially tailored for them and their filing situations.

4. Time Saving

Organizing your past receipts, pouring over lengthy spreadsheets or documents and preparing your own taxes can be very daunting and time consuming. However, with an accountant, they can take on this responsibility for you, giving you plenty of time to focus on other priorities.
