What to Bring When Preparing To Have Your Tax Returns Professionally Prepared
Before you decide to have your individual income taxes prepared by a tax professional at Rugaba Holdings LLC, it’s important to take note of some of the items you’ll need to bring to your tax professional ahead of having your individual taxes prepared. The more information you can provide us, the better, but here are certain documents that you must make sure to bring with you.
Your individual tax preparer will need access to certain identification information that will help verify who you are. The best form of I.D. to bring with you is your social security card, because your accountant will need your social security number for each member of your family that will be claimed on your taxes. You will also need the full names and birth dates for any family members you’ll plan to claim on your taxes. This might come as a surprise, but the IRS has been known to send back large amounts of tax returns each year because the names and social security numbers on the forms do not match. Other forms of I.D. that would be good to bring to your tax preparation meeting include a driver’s license, military ID, or any other state-issued picture I.D. card.
Copies of Recent Tax Returns
You’ll also want to provide your Rugaba Holdings LLC tax professional with your previous year’s tax return. This will help them easily access information and calculate certain deductions without having to contact you for information that can be easily found on your previous year’s tax returns. If this is your first time having your tax returns prepared by a professional, or if you’re meeting a new Rugaba Holdings LLC accountant for the first time, this would also be a good opportunity to discuss any discrepancies that might exist between your previous tax returns.
You’ll need to bring your W-2 forms with you for all companies you are presently or were previously employed with. If for some reason you do not receive these documents from your employer by January 31 of that tax year, you’ll want to check in with your employer to make sure there wasn’t a mix-up and you receive those W-2s on time. If you are not a full-time employee but an independent contractor or freelancer, you’ll receive a 1099-MISC form from each client with whom you’ve worked. You’ll want to make sure you bring these forms to your tax preparation meeting as well.
Any Additional Income Statements
If you accrued any additional income throughout the year, including interest and dividend income from investments, unemployment income, or social security income, you’ll want to bring proof of those as well. You should receive statements for each of these sources of income and should bring them to your meeting as well.
Real Estate Holdings Documents
If you own a home, or have recently purchased a home, there are several different deductions that can be taken. Make sure you bring your accountant any documents that might pertain to a recent home purchase, proof of paid mortgage or home equity loan interest, or proof of paid real estate and personal property taxes paid. Your Rugaba Holdings LLC accountant will use these documents to make sure you get any deductions you might qualify for.
History of Expenses
For deductions and credits, it’s important that you maintain, and share with your accountant, any documentation that shows proof of expenses you had in the prior year. This could include receipts, invoices, medical bills, charitable contributions, IRA contributions, expenses from job-hunting, mileage logs, education expenses, self-employment expenses, and more. Don’t ever feel like you’re bringing too many documents. The rule is, the more the better when ensuring you get the ultimate refund available to you each tax year.
Filing tax returns is one of the most time-consuming, complicated, and sometimes frustrating tasks that we all must go through each year. There are complex tax codes and rules that vary by person and situation. Don’t attempt to file your own tax returns and run the risk of paying more than you should, or not reclaiming the hard-earned money that you’re entitled to. The tax and accounting professionals at Rugaba Holdings LLC can handle everything for you. If you come to us prepared, we can help you maximize your tax return this coming tax season.
