Filing your own taxes? Avoid these 5 mistakes

Before you hit send on your 2013 tax filing, make sure you've considered these common mistakes Angie's List experts routinely see individuals make.

Doing your own taxes driving you crazy?  Hire a qualified accountant to do it instead.  You may even save money.

Accountants

When it comes to doing your taxes and finances, one of the biggest questions that often comes up is whether you should hire an accountant or just handle the matter yourself. Although accountants can be pricey, they often provide many benefits and protections that you can't get by doing the books yourself.

There are more and more ways to file your taxes, so speak with your accountant and find out what filing method will be most beneficial to you. (Photo by Katie Jacewicz)

On this episode of Chat with the Experts, Kiel Hauck talks with Marc Adams about the best methods for filing your taxes and answers common tax questions.

Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
was extremely helpful and honest, even though I didn't end up doing business with him. I contacted him because I had filed my own taxes but I wasn't sure that I had gotten the maximum amount of deductions. He and I went back and forth over the messaging system. After I sent him all of my information and reviewed it, he advised me that I probably already had done everything that I could do and that it might not be worth my money to use his services.
It's rare that you find someone as helpful and honest as this. Most companies would probably tell you to go ahead and come in and would just take your money.
Thanks

Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
with
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
prepared my 2012 taxes. I lived in Indiana at the time and she indicated that I owed $1,805 in Indiana state tax alone. I was both an employee and self-employed at the same time. Thinking this was an incredibly high amount that I would owe, I decided to have a new accountant check over my 2012 taxes. As he was checking the return that she prepared, he noticed 4 significant mistakes.
1. She printed out the form for my daughters
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
and I had attached the form from the college, but she didn’t fill out
the form submitting a
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
form and didn’t claim it on my return.
2. She had my W-2 from my employer, the job that I was an employee, and she entered my income from that job, but never entered the amount I paid in taxes for that job on my return.
3. She failed to include state tax that was withheld on my W-2.
4.She also failed to include county tax that was withheld on my W-2. All of the documents she needed to complete the returns correctly were given to her and even attached by her to the originals that she sent back to me with my completed returns to send in for filing.
I have sent 3 separate requests by certified mail, FedEx and regular mail requesting to be paid the money she owes me, however she will not send any response by mail and when I call the office, I am told that
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
isn’t in and they have no idea when she will be in. This is highly unlikely as it is tax season and I find it hard to believe that the office staff doesn’t know when the only accountant in the business will actually be in to do her work. Her secretary,
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
is very rude and short when I call.
Due to her mistakes, I have asked to be reimbursed for:
The amount that she charged me to do incorrect/incomplete returns $205
The cost to have taxes evaluated and amended $100 ($50.00 per return State/Federal)
Federal penalties $70.65 due to her mistake
Federal interest $40.42 due to her mistake
Indiana penalties $33.88 due to her mistake
Indiana interest $ 2.36 due to her mistake
TOTAL DUE TO ME: $452.31

is extremely responsive and helpful. I had my tax information to him and it was completed within the same week. I received my refund before anyone else I knew the past couple of years using him. He's great to work with and I would definitely recommend him!

Bill
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
is a knowledgeable, responsive and fantastic CPA. When I first contacted Bill, I had recently started a consulting firm. He was very patient with me as I was focused more on my clientele than keeping up with my administrative tasks. Our first meeting was very comfortable and educational. He listened to my needs and concerns, and provided several options for me to consider. As I chose projects over keeping up with expenses and providing timely tax information, he continued to be patient. If I had a question, he was quick to respond with a thorough response. I look forward to Bill completing my 2014 tax return, and guiding my financial future. He has earned my trust.

As an entrepreneur with a business idea but little business experience, I recognized I needed help and turned to Fuse Financial Partners.

Do yourselves a favor and stay as far away from them as possible. We chose them based on the glowing reviews here on angies list and considering my experience with them i wonder how it is that they ever got such reviews. when we first hired them, they were great. they took care of our quarterly business tax needs very promptly, but thats where the good stopped. After the initial assistance they were almost impossible to get in touch with. they utilize a generic email account that is poorly managed. each time we asked for an email to communicate with them they would give us the generic email, and each time we emailed that generic email address we would get zero response and would then have to write multiple times then resort to calling them to communicate. we would explain that we were extremely busy with our business and preferred to communicate via email, and over and over our emails would fall into a black hole. They even came close to missing a quarterly tax filing because of this. in addition to this, on one instance we had submitted our quarterly tax information to them including our quickbooks file and without any tax planning or even a word, they submitted our taxes electronically and even submitted for money to be paid from our business checking account. To me this is a deal breaker to have money paid and taxes submitted without my prior approval. Actually we were wanting to pay more in taxes for this quarter, and had informed them of this which was ignored by them, instead they submitted a minimum amount. At this same time we had asked if they would have a phone conversation with our personal financial planner so that everyone was on the same page. Even after scheduling an appointment for a phone conversation they bailed on the appointment with no word or heads up to our advisor. This advisor is extremely busy and was doing us a favor to have this conversation and for them to totally ignore him and the appointment was was extremely uncalled for and unprofessional. Even after all this unprofessionalism, we were willing to have a conversation with them to get on the same page and figure out how to move forward. it took over a week to schedule the meeting because they could not make themselves available to us, and we had to reschedule several other meetings to accommodate them. we scheduled a 8:45am appt with
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
to discuss things...a coming to
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
meeting if you will. Neither her or
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
showed up for our meeting, and when the receptionist called
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
on the phone i could hear
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
saying that she had no appt and would never set up a meeting so early. mind you, we have the emails showing it was her idea to meet at that specific time. After waiting for 45 min for her or
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
to get there we left and informed the receptionist that
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
needed to call us. Now this is where it gets interesting.
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
called us and left a message saying that she has a handicapped son that she helps out with his children. i am completely understanding of peoples personal issues, but i feel they have no place in a business setting. in the 30+ second voice mail she said handicapped son 7 times, and that she was sorry she had a handicapped son, and then proceeded to say that we missed
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
by 5 min. Now if that was true we would have seen
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
on our way out of the building, and what she failed to understand is that we did not miss
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
by 5 min, her and
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
missed us by over 45 min. We informed her that we did not see a way for us to move our business relationship forward and we would not be using them anymore. After this we got a narcissistic rant from
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
about how he is the best tax planner in the metro atlanta area and of course we are free to go with whoever we want, but we will never find another tax accountant and planner as good as he is. all i can say is WOW! So after all this i contemplated whether or not to put something up here since this is were i found them. Then yesterday we got an email that they did our 4th quarter taxes, and i was mind boggled. I called
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
and informed her that we had moved on and would not need their services, she thanked us then proceeded to go into the same spill about how wonderful
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
is and how he is the best tax accountant and tax planner in the metro area, and we will never find anyone better. Again...WOW! I informed her that we never saw any of that and if their professionalism had have been on the same level as they think
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
's
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
planning skills were that we would not be in the situation we are currently in. She then told me i was not a very nice person...actually that i was a horrible person. I thanked her for her time and hung up the phone. Those are the facts, but my opinion is that despite the a rating they have, they are far from an A rated
Bristol Accountants Provider Name Locked
firm and if you select them for your needs, do yourself a favor and have a backup plan.
