Service Update - COVID-19

Due to the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19, our office has established a business continuity plan and will continue to serve our clients in the safest way possible.

Our staff will be working remotely and will be closing our office until further notice. We will resume in office operations and will be available for phone calls once our government agencies deem it safe. We ask that you please remain patient and consider the following: The IRS has granted taxpayers relief by giving extensions on all income tax payments up to July 15th. The extensions will be valid once an electronic extension is filed, which we will do for you.

We assure you that we will continue to work all files diligently and timely.

If you should have an emergency, we are providing Steve Whyte's contact information where he can be reached. PLEASE be extremely considerate and thoughtful on whether your matter is truly an emergency prior to calling. Steve Whyte's PH: 909-720-6876

Business Continuity Plan

Sincerely,
Steve Whyte, E.A

Taxes have been filed and you get that dreaded phone call. The IRS or some other franchisor is auditing your financial records.

Run the Numbers Again

When you are preparing your tax documents, it’s important to check and then double-check all your numbers. Errant math is one of the easiest ways the IRS can single in on an individual for a tax audit. It is the number one reason people in the U.S. face a tax audit. This is a shame because math is something that each of us has complete control over but, for whatever reason, we can fail to send in factual numbers. There are professional tax programs out there that will even do the math for you.

Be Careful When Straying from The Norm

When filing taxes, it does not pay to stand out. The IRS is constantly on the lookout for any patterns which deviate from the norm and will single you out if possible. If you are entering truthful tax information, make sure you have supporting documents and proof which can back this data up. That way, when the IRS comes calling, you have absolute proof that you are being truthful.

Double Check Social Security Numbers

When filling out your tax forms, you need to double-check that all SSNs are entered correctly for any represented parties including dependents. It’s all too easy to transpose a digit or to incorrectly recall a number when you don’t have it in front of you. Make sure and recheck this before submitting it.

Make sure you are entering correct SSNs for all parties you are filing taxes for including dependents. It’s very easy to switch a number or recall one incorrectly, so make sure and check again before submitting it.
