“Hire a professional,” is great advice that applies to your taxes, too. Jackson Hewitt Tax Pros know the ins and outs of the tax code, so they can catch missed deductions or credits that put your money back where it belongs—in your wallet, so you leave no cash on the table. You might even get more money than you realize is possible.
A tax professional has specific expertise in tax return preparation and tax filing, so they can be sure you are getting the biggest refund—and not spending any more money on taxes than required. That means your Tax Pro is an expert at the latest rules for credits and deductions.
Every tax professional should have an active IRS-issued Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN), solid—and continuing—tax training, and stand behind her or his work.
Turn to your Tax Pro for help in gathering the appropriate documents, including W-2s and 1099s, preparing your income tax return, and filing your return.
Tip: Use our free document checklist to make sure you bring everything you need.
Like lawyers, doctors, and mechanics, tax professionals are well-qualified specialists in their field. A tax professional provides expertise in preparing your taxes completely and accurately. Not to mention, they can give you support and confidence in dealing with tax authorities. Here are the best reasons to file with a Tax Pro.
Your tax professional can answer any questions you have about filing taxes, or if the IRS questions anything about your returns.
An accurate return can mean you’re getting every dollar you deserve, or if you owe, paying only the tax you should. You don’t need to worry about possible errors or penalties.
What do you gain from working with a Tax Pro? Time. Peace of mind. And often, a bigger refund. All things that change life for the better.
Book an appointment with a Tax Pro to see how we get things done for you.
