Tax Return Preparation And Your Tax Return
Tax return preparation for some US taxpayers may be very simple to calculate and file. W-2’s and 1099s are pretty straightforward. Income from partnerships or S-Corps can be challenging. For those taxpayers that have a family, own a home and other assets or even operate a business, knowing and understanding all the rules and state or federal laws can make a difference on your tax refunds.
Tax laws are complicated making filing even a relatively simple return confusing. It’s just too easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled. The office of James M. Wesolowski, CPA, P.A. can help you understand and claim possible tax deductions for such items as:
- Current Year Tax Rates
- Itemized Deduction Limitations
- Personal Tax Exemption
- Business Expense Deductions
- Head of Household Filing Status
- Alternative Minimum Tax Exemption
- Earned Income Credits
- Health Savings Accounts
- Adjusted Gross Income
- Qualified Transportation Fringe Benefit
- Foreign Income Exclusion
- Estate of Decedents

Personal tax returns are due to the IRS on or about April 15th of each year. Tax payments individuals may owe are also due April 15th of each year. If you can’t complete your tax return by April 15th, we can file an extension which extends your filing date to October 15th. An extension provides additional time to file the forms, not to pay the tax.
Business tax returns and the required tax filing rules are determined by whether you operate as an LLC, an “S” corporation, a “C” corporation, partnership or a sole proprietor. Many tax laws are specific to your business. Business tax rules can be complicated and require the expertise of a CPA to ensure your best tax advantage.
