How does the individual tax preparation process work?
At K. A. Bell, CPA, we strive to make the individual tax preparation process easy and efficient. If you are a new client, it is best to schedule an in-person meeting. When the meeting is prior to year-end, we can provide a Tax Organizer in January to help you organize your information for the current year. When the initial meeting is during tax season, please bring your current year tax information with you.
During your meeting, we’ll discuss your tax situation, answer any questions you have, and take information needed to prepare your returns. If there are additional questions or missing information, we’ll contact you. Once we complete your returns, you can choose to receive them by mail, our secure client portal, or in person. We are happy to schedule an appointment to review the completed returns with you. Included with your returns will be important instructions you will need to follow.
Most federal and state returns are filed electronically. We are required by law to obtain a signed authorization form from you prior to doing so. Additionally, depending on your particular situation, there may be additional steps needed to pay balances due, file local returns, or pay the next year’s estimated taxes.
