Tax Preparation and Planning
There is an old expression, “the only two constants are death and taxes”, with most people claiming the latter is more “painful” of the two. Yet, millions of taxpayers each year attempt to try and prepare their taxes without the use of an experienced certified public accountant (CPA).
Do I Need a CPA?
When it comes to deciding whether to use the services of a CPA, the following are some questions to consider:
- Am I self-employed and/or have ownership in a separate business entity?
- Do I own rental property?
- Am I selling stock, business holdings, or other large assets?
- Am I short on time?
- Am I overwhelmed with the thought of preparing my own taxes?
- Do I feel like I don’t understand the tax implications of my financial situation?
- Do I have a complicated tax situation?
If you answer “YES” to any of the above, then you are in a situation which requires the services of a CPA, such as Adam M. Domow CPA.
Tax Preparation Services
Are you paying more in taxes than you should? Could your refund be even higher? Do you need to file in more than one state? Or do you just look at the tax code and think it is an entirely different language?
The need for an income tax preparer, such as a CPA, is growing more important with tax laws and regulations changing every year and the complexities of monitoring these changes. To stay updated and how best to apply these changes to your specific situation, we regularly attend various tax seminars. We also strongly believe that our tax preparation software is a tool, ensuring, for example, our clients do not miss out on any new tax deductions and credits, rather than hoping that the tax software generates the correct results as is often the case when preparing your own tax return.

Annual business income taxes are just one type of these tax filings. Adam M.
