4 Things You Should Do Before Filing Your Taxes

January 31, 2019

The tax filing deadlines are approaching for every business to file their taxes. There are several ways to file depending on the type of business. Whether you are a sole proprietor or an LLC, your taxes need to be done on time, or you need to have filed for an extension. Preparing for this task is difficult if you do not know what to prepare. That's why hiring business tax services can help tremendously. Here are a few other steps to help you prepare your taxes faster.

Collect Your Records

Hopefully, you have records. The IRS wants to know everything about your money and what you spent it on. Receipts, invoices, checks - any record of money exchange should be kept for tax season. It is extremely beneficial to have a filing system in place for all this paper. Don’t want to store paper? Digital copies work just as well. The important thing is to have a record of all earnings and expenses.

Find the Right Form

There are countless IRS tax forms. Your business type will determine the correct form to use. A Schedule C attachment allows sole proprietors and LLCs to report their income and expenses. However, corporations must always use a separate corporate tax return on Form 1120. Getting help from a professional who provides business tax services will remove the confusion regarding which form is right for you.
