Why your tax pro may contact you at this time of year

During the holiday season, it is so easy for small business owners to forget about their tax professionals and accountants; especially when it comes to year-end spending and charitable donations. After all, the spirit of the season leads people to be generous and kind towards their fellow man. While this is normally a good thing, the tax consequences may not be considered.

But now that tax season has started, an email or call from one’s tax professional should not be ignored. It is no secret that for the next few months, accountants and tax attorneys will be especially busy. But in the event your accountant or attorney reaches out to you, it is likely to keep you apprised of recent changes in the law (because most new laws take effect on January 1) or important reminders that will help as you file your tax return. 

Additionally, business owners should also keep watch for monthly newsletters, whether they are in paper form or are sent electronically. You may also look out for in-person workshops and Internet webinar sessions. Common topics include the latest deductions, options for making payments on delinquent taxes, dealing with potential criminal charges, and preparing for audits.

Regardless of your preference and legal issues, it is important to take contacts from your accountant or tax attorney seriously at this time of year, especially given how busy you may have been as 2016 drew to a close. Remember, good preparation in January can make things easier in April.

The preceding is not legal advice.
