Have you received your tax forms yet? Keep in mind the IRS began accepting tax returns on Jan. 29, with nearly 155 million individual tax returns expected to be filed in 2018. The nation’s tax deadline will be April 17 this year – so taxpayers will have two additional days to file beyond April 15. Choosing e-file and direct deposit for refunds remains the fastest and safest way to file an accurate income tax return and receive a refund. The IRS expects more than four out of five tax returns will be prepared electronically using tax software.

 Is your Tax Preparer protected with a bond? Tax preparers work directly with the financial and personal information of their clients. To decrease the chances of a tax preparer committing fraud or otherwise unethically using their client’s information  tax preparers are required to purchase surety bonds through a surety bond company.

The most common type of bond used by Nevada tax preparers is a tax-preparers bond. These types of surety bonds are exclusively used by the tax industry and protect consumers from financial loss at the hands of their tax preparer. Next time you meet with your Tax Preparer ask them if they are protected!

 We have our very own resident tax preparer Briana Lopez. She has been preparing taxes in the Carson City office for several years now, she has a passion for numbers.
