Are Your Taxes Complicated?

Posted by Armen G. Derderian C.P.A on January 16, 2018

Sometimes, you can’t use simple tax forms to handle your tax return. There are a lot of reasons for this, ranging from multiple jobs to self-employment. You still need to pay your taxes—but it’s become a lot harder. When spending hours trying to understand these forms isn’t an option, what can you do?

Every form for tax returns has associated instructions. This means it is possible to do your return on your own—there are no hidden guidelines. However, these instructions are dry and include a lot of terminologies you might not understand. It’s easy to get confused, which could lead to massive problems down the line.

Ask for assistance with your taxes when they’re too complicated for you to understand. We know you could figure them out with a lot of time and patience, but do you have this time? 90% of taxpayers have some kind of assistance with their returns, whether it’s a software or a tax accountant guiding them through the preparation. You’re not alone in asking for help, so don’t feel any shame in reaching out for assistance you might need.

The biggest hurdle for many people who require assistance with their tax returns is the cost of the support. However, this is not a cost you can afford to avoid. If you make mistakes and get audited, your taxes could cost you far more money than you were expecting. A tax accountant can help you find deductions and save money that you would not have considered on your own.
