This is mostly due to the lack of confidence in their bookkeeping records, delaying the returns, causing the need for an extension to be filed. An extension keeps the dark tax cloud hovering over you, only to rear its ugly head again in a few short months down the road. Utilizing an outsourced bookkeeping service, you minimize or eliminate most of these tax pains. If your books are updated, accurate and timely filings should become the normal. There may be an exception to the rule on occasion, however, being in control of the variables, is a much different scenario than the alternative. These exceptions can be eliminated also, with a tax review, which will give you an estimate of your financials before year-end. This valuable information from a review puts you in control, assuring you understand your potential liability. The power to reposition the most tax advantageous use of your money, making calculated decisions before year-end, is a strategic business move.
