FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz., March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Fountain Hills Accountant Dan Kuchan is helping taxpayers this filing season by revealing some top tips for filing taxes this year. From when to start gathering materials to how to avoid an audit, these top tips are perfect for everyone who will be filing taxes this year.
1. How to Avoid an Audit
There are many things that people can do in order to avoid an audit from the IRS. Fountain Hills Accountant Dan Kuchan says that people's chances of getting audited are extremely low. However, it is important to remember that income and deductions are averaged against other people in the same income range. Those who exceed this specified range can and will be flagged for an audit. Getting flagged and actually having an audit is not the same thing, though. If a person is flagged, it is then up to an IRS worker to decide whether or not an audit is warranted.
2. Be Wary of "Free" Tax Services
There will inevitably be many different advertisements in the coming months about "free" tax services. These establishments may prepare a tax return for free, and some may print taxpayer's federal tax return for free, but oftentimes, there are huge fees for printing state tax returns.
"Any extra forms such as tax estimates are not free, and in the end, you pay more than simply using a reputable tax preparer," Fountain Hills Accountant Dan Kuchan said.
3. The Earlier, the Better
Fountain Hills AccountantDan Kuchan implores tax payers to not wait until the last minute to start getting their tax materials together. He advises that by the first week of February, most taxpayer documents should be gathered and up-to-date. This way, any missing documents can be dealt with without having to worry about how long this process will take. Mistakes made by rushing to do taxes at the last minute could be costly and can be avoided by starting to prepare early.
