The Biggest Problems You’ll Have With Most Accountants & Tax Preparers…
And How A Kaplan, CPA Overcomes Them All
Did you know That The I.R.S. Estimates 80% of Americans Overpay Their Taxes! A report issued by the Federal Government Accountability Office stated, “Taxpayers overpaid their taxes by about $945 million due to them not claiming the deductions they could have been entitled to.” The GAO report went on to state that “…49 percent of the tax returns where taxpayers overpaid due to failure to claim itemized deductions were prepared by a third party.” This means that these people’s tax returns were prepared by someone, or some firm, who wasn’t very knowledgeable or experienced in tax preparation.
The Most Common Tax Mistake (You’re Probably Making It Now)
With today’s complicated tax laws, it’s easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you’re entitled. People who do prepare their taxes themselves, or hire unskilled, unlicensed tax preparers, tend to lose out the most. Trying to save a few dollars winds up costing them $1,000s of dollars in over payment, fines, audits and penalties.
