Top Tips For Tax Season From Cecil Atkission Motors In Kerrville, TX

Top Tips to Prepare for Tax Season

It’s that time of year again when you need to scrounge up receipts and find various forms to file your taxes. To make your life a little easier, we’ve come up with the top tips to help you prepare for tax season.

Gather your documents

Your employer should have already sent your W-2 by now, as well as additional health insurance documentation. Compile those along with any other tax-related documents, such as forms from your bank or any receipts you kept for possible tax deductions. Place all of these items in a re-sealable folder for safekeeping and easy access, and don’t forget to label it with the appropriate tax year.

Decide who will file

If you’re considered “single” by the government — not legally married — and only have one source of income, it might be easy for you to file your taxes through an online tool. However, if you experienced a big life change, such as getting married, having a child, switching jobs, or moving between states, you may want to hire a professional to help you wade through your taxes accurately.

Don’t fall for any scams

Right now, scammers are working their hardest to get unknowing Americans to fall for a scheme that makes them believe the IRS is coming after them and subsequently reveal private information. The IRS will never call you as a first means of communication, but rather will send you a notice via the U.S. Postal Service.

Once you’ve got everything sorted, you’ll hopefully be in good standing to receive a hefty refund. After you’ve got it deposited in the bank, stop by and see us at Cecil Atikission GM so we can use that as a down payment towards your dream car!
