What Nobody Tells You About Your Small Business Tax Software
Small business tax software is available for your business during tax season. You see the commercials on TV, the online advertisements, and the promotional emails. They’re out there, promoting ease of use and cheap payments. But what are they not telling you? Before you make the investment on a small business tax software, take these things into account.
Not All Software Is Created Equal
Small businesses vary in the number of employees and revenue they make each year. Depending on these factors, some software will work better, and some will not suit your needs. For instance, self-employed individuals can buy a TurboTax download to file their business and personal taxes all in one place. However, a business that’s an S-Corp or higher with employees underneath them will need to buy a business account with TurboTax, and that will not include any personal filing information. At Halon Tax, on the other hand, we work exclusively with small businesses and vary our pricing depending on revenue. You should do some research before buying any software to prepare your taxes.
Just Because a CPA Is Advertised Doesn’t Mean One Is Guaranteed
At Halon Tax, we have three separate CPA’s check your returns before they are sent to you for your approval. You can even request a CPA to go over your return with you. At TurboTax, you file your return with a software. And while there are over four hundred deductions you can go through, a CPA will only look at your return with you upon request. If having a CPA approve your filing is important to you, you’ll get more out of your filing experience working with Halon Tax.
Filing Doesn’t Have to Take Forever
With TurboTax, they have an easy to use interface that walks you through the filing process step by step. But you need to have the time to actually sit through the walkthrough. At Halon Tax, we file everything through QuickBooks and can even upload your information ourselves if you use another software or track your business by hand. With us, a filing can be created in as little as twelve hours. If you don’t have the time to file yourself, choose a program that can upload everything for you and can guarantee the backing of three CPA’s.
There may be other small business tax software out there, but you won’t get any better than us at Halon Tax. We both offer free federal tax filings and can work with you on state filing as well. Halon Tax will work harder and better for you. If you are a small business and need to start filling your taxes, call us today at 612-293-8094 or email us at email@example.com.
