5 Reasons to Hire a Tax Professional Instead of Doing it Yourself

Taxation is the area in which there can’t be any error, especially if it’s a business. There are so many mistakes an individual can possibly make like penalties, interest and additional taxes. Poor record keeping can result in an audit which is quite an expensive and time consuming procedure. An audit can lead to penalties which can further cause you to lose money. This is the reason why hiring a tax professional is better as compared to doing your taxes yourself.

Here are 5 reasons to hire a tax professional:

Managing Your Financial and Accounting Matters

  • Hiring a tax professional will enable you to unburden from all financial and accounting matters. The professional will assist you by giving appropriate advice for your current as well as future projects.
  • A tax professional will help you understand all the past tax issues you faced and what steps can be taken to avoid those issues in the future.
  • Your tax professional will assist you and provide clarification of all income reporting responsibilities.

Yearly Taxes

  • Yearly taxes are very crucial for businesses.
  • There are times when you have to make yearly taxes yourself while sometimes the decision is made by the government.
  • Your tax professional can assist you doing your taxes for the relevant tax year. He/she will also assist you with the government made taxes.

Employee & State Taxes

  • There are many organizations that generate revenue by doing business located outside the state. It is significant for them to understand the specified tax obligations and rules of conducting business from a different state. Only a tax professional can help you understand these obligations and regulations and ensure that you don’t end up with taxation problems.
  • In case you do not have any employees, you will still be required to fulfill the requirements of self employed taxation. Sole proprietor is usually considered as an employee as well as an employer and it might be possible that they aren’t supposed to pay business taxes. This dual role and its tax responsibilities can be confusing which is why a tax professional must be consulted.

Changes in Tax Laws

  • State and federal regulations and laws frequently change. There usually is a new tax code annually. IRS and other tax agencies issue Tax Code interpreting rulings each year. A tax professional knows how significant it is to follow all the rulings and how they have an impact on your business.
  • Tax professionals are updated about all the changing laws and procedures which are important for you to follow. He/she can easily assist you to ward of any problems related to taxes.

Save Your Money and Time

  • Doing taxes consumes a lot of time and money. Hiring a tax professional can save you from this and help you in avoiding any possible financial loss.
  • The time that you will spend in understanding and worrying about preparing taxes can be saved by seeking professional help.

Client Reviews
Mike has given us peace of mind! He helped negotiate down a large balance and get us on a payment plan that we can afford with no worries! The stress of dealing with the IRS is huge and Mike helped us through it all. The peace of mind is invaluable, thank you Mike!April S.
Mike Habib - Thank you for being so professional and honest and taking care of my brothers IRS situation. We are so relieved it is over and the offer in compromise process went just as you said. Mike is very professional and will give you honest answers to the OIC process and you can really trust him. You won't be sorry you chose him!Joe and Deborah V.
Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation!Marcie R.
Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!Marshall W.
I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends.Nancy & Sal V.
