Beneficial Tax Planning Strategies for Individuals
Successful tax planning involves analyzing your expenses, income, retirement plans, and investments. Our CPAs are happy to guide you through keeping prudent financial records and update you on the ever-changing tax laws. This allows you to take advantage of new tax-saving techniques.
It is also essential to understand the tax implications of financial decisions and life events. Inheriting assets, buying a house, getting married, and having kids are all examples of life changes that affect taxes. With proper tax strategies, we can help you reduce your tax bill and plan for a brighter financial future.
One of the tax strategies that helps you reduce your liability is deferring your income into a retirement plan. This can be done by contributing pre-tax dollars in a tax-deferred account until you retire. By deferring income, your earnings won't attract tax until you withdraw the funds, most likely after retirement.
Another strategy for tax liability reduction is through estate planning. Planning your estate details how your assets will be managed and distributed after death. You could plan your estate for purposes of preserving family wealth, supporting a charitable cause, or continuing a legacy. Writing a will is the most common way to do so.
Some options for limiting estate taxes include forming trust accounts, identifying an executor of your estate, and specifying how your dependents will benefit from life insurance, IRAs, and other plans.
Accurate Tax Preparation for Businesses
Preparing your business taxes takes a rigorous documentation process to disclose your financial status accurately. No matter the size of your business, you are expected to be precise in your filings. We help your firm prepare all needed documentation and file your taxes with high accuracy. Our filings are compliant with federal, state, and local standards.
Annual vs. Quarterly Taxes
Most businesses need to file taxes on a quarterly basis. However, the decision to file quarterly or annually depends on your type of business and cash flow. Here is how you can determine if you need to file annually or quarterly:
Annual Tax Filing - All companies must file their taxes at the yearly deadline, which is typically in April. This includes those that file quarterly. If your company files and pays every quarter, year end is the time you calculate your full annual tax liability, subtract your earlier payments, and pay the difference.
Quarterly Tax Filing - These business entities are required to submit estimated taxes quarterly: sole proprietors, partnerships, S corporation shareholders, or self-employed individuals. You don't need to file quarterly if you owe less than $1,000 in taxes.
Benefits of Tax Preparation
Outsourcing your tax preparation to a professional comes with various benefits, including:
- Low chances of an IRS audit due to the accuracy of documentation
- Avoidance of penalties by filing all federal, state, and local taxes on time
- Reduced tax obligations through deductions, credits, and other opportunities
- Saving the time and effort, you can put toward managing your company's core business
