HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
This year we celebrated our partner, Adriana Wilson-Pawlow's, birthday once again on January 1st. Along with this celebration also came the news that the government finally approved the Fiscal Bill. This new bill has a lot of changes and extensions. One effect of this that you will feel right away is in your paycheck as we return to the standard 6.2% on Social Security Taxes withheld. So, with extensions temporary and permanent changes, this year has a late start for IRS to approve forms etc, but it also proves to be challenging for the average taxpayer to prepare his or her income taxes.
Knowing that the laws have changed, extensions have taken place, and other requirements have been enacted, to not visit us and speak to CPAs with more than 80 years of combined experience that are up to date with knowledge and technology, would be a serious mistake. So when all is said and done, why not listen to the old adage that "a lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client". Don't take a chance with your income taxes, even the ones that appear to be "easy" may not be, in reality, returns that only have a few items to complete. Sleep better at night knowing that you did the best, hiring CPAs like us that will be here today and in the future should any questions or audits arise. The support starts with your return: You are not the only one to sign the return, our signature also goes on giving added security that a CPA not just a tax preparer did their best to obtain the maximum legal refund or minimize the legal tax liability.
At Gladys R Wilson and Associates tax preparation and tax representation are year-round services performed by CPAs. We are proud to be an e-file provider with the Internal Revenue Service and as experienced certified public accountants we have the knowledge and flexibility to represent tax cases (federal) and state not only in Illinois but also in Wisconsin. This year the electronic filing season for individuals began on January 30, 2013 with some forms delayed in approval by the IRS. Therefore, if you don't want to wait the traditional months to receive your refund, come and visit us, we can e-file it for you. E-file is much faster and more accurate than sending the returns via regular mail. Our new tax season hours for both offices, at 3439 N Harlem in Chicago and 6616 W Cermak in Berwyn are Monday-Saturday from 9:00am-9:00pm. If you would like to expedite the process, feel free to register and use our Secure Exchange to start submitting your information to us.
For those that may be wondering on how to reduce the tax liability or have received letters from the IRS or State of Illinois informing you that your return has been selected for examination or have tax account difficulties, we suggest you bring in all letters, copies of tax returns and see us as soon as you can.
