If you are based in Raleigh, NC our firm offers accounting and bookkeeping services for small businesses. Otherwise, if you are in need of individual tax preparation services, there are many reputable accountants in the area you can choose from. We encourage you to research, read reviews, and even ask friends or colleagues for recommendations before you select someone to prepare your taxes. After all, it’s a big decision when someone else is handling your taxes!
Are tax preparation fees tax deductible?
Tax preparation fees may be tax deductible, but it depends on a few factors. Typically, tax preparation fees are a deductible business expense but not a personal tax deduction. It’s important to note that you may not be able to deduct the entire cost of the tax preparation fees. You can only claim the amount of the fee that was accrued by preparing the business portion of your taxes. The rest, including the standard deduction, personal deductions, and credits fall into personal expense.
Should I pay someone to prepare my taxes?
Since many businesses miss opportunities for tax deductions each year, we recommend having a professional and reputable CPA prepare your taxes so you can get the most out of your tax return. In addition, a trusted CPA will charge a fair price to identify errors on your tax return and keep you informed of new and updated tax laws.
