Have you ever worked on a project that left you with more questions than answers at the end of it? Doesn’t that sound a lot like preparing your own taxes? According to a study released by the US Government’s General Accounting Office, the majority of taxpayers, 77% of 71 million people, believe they benefited from using a professional tax preparer.
The tax code today is very complicated and confusing. It’s very easy to overlook deductions and credits that are rightfully yours.

So how does tax planning different from tax preparation? The answer is simple…January 1st. That may seem like a strange answer to you but here’s why. Tax Preparation happens after January 1st. Tax Planning occurs prior to January 1st. Once New Year’s Day arrives, there is very little you can do to change your tax liability for the year. However, there are many things you can do prior to New Years.
