How to Submit Your Tax Info to Your Tax Return Preparer?

I think everyone can agree that the goal of the tax return preparation process is to do it as quick as possible and to pay the least amount in time, taxes and prep costs.

Usually, the best way to accomplish something is to have a good process with good tools. Here is a process with good tools I suggest for going through and organizing your tax info to get them done!

  1. Print and complete the tax organizer provided by your tax program/preparer. See below for an example of tax organizers.

  2. Look at your prior year tax support file and familiarize yourself with your prior year tax picture including:

    1. Making sure you have official tax documents (i.e. W2s, 1099s, 1098s) for the current year that you had in the prior year.

  3. Put the completed tax organizer and current year official tax documents in a folder and prepare your return or send off to your favorite tax preparer.

  4. Contact your other financial specialists to talk about:

    • Financial Planning Areas Such As:
      • Investment Planning
