The Business Owners Dilemma.....
Good bookkeeping and accounting is vital to the success and operation of your business. Yet, it seems to take too much time to keep a handle on - time you could better spend on actually running your business and managing its growth. But turning it over to accounting and bookkeeping firms can be expensive, right? With all the hidden charges and impersonal service? You don't have to choose between "efficient" and "affordable". Check out our menu of available services and packages tailored for what you and your business need.
Are you delinquent in filing your tax returns?
Help yourself by filing your past-due federal tax returns.Most people voluntarily file their tax returns and pay their taxes —they want to pay their fair share and get a refund, claim a credit or avoid breaking the law. IRS research shows that sometimes people don’t file due to:
• a change in their filing status resulting from the death of a spouse, divorce or other life-changing event;emotional or financial reasons; or procrastination.
Unfortunately, failing to file a return can create additional problems:
• Failure to file penalty – If you owe taxes, a delay in filing may result in penalty and interest charges that could increase your tax bill. The longer you delay, the larger these charges grow.
• Losing your refund –There is no penalty for failure to file if you are due a refund. However, you cannot obtain a refund without filing a tax return. If you wait too long to file, you may risk losing the refund altogether. In cases where a return is not filed, the law provides most taxpayers with a three year window of opportunity for claiming a refund.
* EITC – If you are entitled to the Earned Income Tax Credit, you must file your return to claim the credit even if you are not otherwise required to file. The return must be filed within three years of the due date in order to receive the credit.
What should you do? Whether you are just one year behind or several, its never too late to catch up and "get back into the system". Sunset Accounting will prepare and submit those returns and work to minimize or even eliminate the late-filing penalties that IRS will surely charge.
