Tax Preparation Information

  • Estimated Payments:

    • If you are projected to have a balance due to the IRS and/or state government, you may be required to make estimated tax payments. These payments are applied toward next year's tax liability. Estimated payments help to close the gap between the taxes you owe during the tax year and the taxes you withhold in order to try and alleviate the tax and penalty liability you may owe.  

    • For more information on estimated payments, please visit the IRS website here.

  • Charity:

    • If you make donations greater than $250 to any charity, you are required to have proof of donation from the charity.

    • Non-cash deductions greater than $500 must have detailed documentation (date, item, amount).
