Application Accepted!  – Yes, but for what?…No, not for that!

The din of taxpayers getting their returns prepared is often punctuated by the comment: “I am in no rush to file because I owe” Ok, it’s your prerogative to file at your own leisure and pleasure but be mindful of the fact that an application for an extension of time to file later than the usual April 15 deadline is exactly that and no more. It is an extension of time to file and not an extension of time to pay! If your tax returns will result in a refund, delaying to file will only mean that you are allowing your money to remain with the IRS a bit longer (oh no they are not...

The Tax benefits of a dependent  – My Truth, Your Truth, The Truth!

It’s that time again when tax preparers seek to maximize their “returns” over a short three month period and taxpayers shop around for the largest refunds possible.  The ideal marketplace one would say where both buyers and sellers of services actively seek each other. In a consumer-driven market with demand overflowing, advertising is primarily focused on claims of who makes the better mouse trap or is able to deliver the largest bacon; an emphasis which in and of itself is honorable but for the spurious and misleading tactics used by some.  We see advertisements all around making...

Reflections on the past year bring the inescapable kaleidoscope of emotions as we celebrate, agonize, console, and justify, but always ending up at the same place… “My New Year resolutions are blah, blah, blah!” So having fire-crackered out 2015, we reach into the age old trunk of resolutions made and forgotten by the wayside, brush them off, add a bit of deceptive sheen, and...

Auto Expenses – That “Dangerously” Attractive Tax Deduction

Posted by on Dec 17, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

We rely on our motor vehicles to take us to and from work and for some it is an integral component in the successful accomplishment of our jobs. Before long the odometer is showing anywhere from 15,000 to 45,000, possibly more, miles travelled in one year. Its tax time and you go traipsing off to your preparer thinking that at almost $0.57 per mile at the top end (not to mention gas, repairs, and routine service costs) you are in for a whopping auto expense deduction which should land you right at that attractive tax refund earmarked for funding the vacation to Hawaii. STOP!! Consider the...
