Everyone has heard the phrase, “the only sure things in life are death and taxes.” While you don’t have much control over death, you can do something to make certain you are paying the minimum amount of income tax. In today’s complex income tax environment, self-prepared tax returns or returns done by a storefront tax preparer can often mean thousands of dollars in extra taxes (not to mention the risk of incorrectly prepared returns). It is vital to have access to competent and experienced tax counsel throughout the year, but primarily at tax time.
