An individual or personal income tax is calculated by a person’s total income, less some allowable deductions. Tax is often collected throughout the year on a pay-as-you-earn basis with minor corrections made as needed at year-end. The corrections are either in the form of a payment made to the government (when the amount paid during the year was less than the actual tax owed), or a refund from the government (when the amount paid throughout the year exceeded the actual tax owed).

Remember that every tax return is different. In order for us to make sure nothing is missed, we suggest providing at least the prior two years’ tax returns for the examination of any possible errors. This will also help ensure that we are not omitting data that may have been on a previous tax return and was not provided.
