Tax Software vs Tax Professional

Tax season is getting ready to start up and if you’re smart, you’ve already begun making plans to avoid headaches.  But should you use tax software or a tax professional?

We always recommend hiring a tax professional simply because its their job to know all of the ins and outs, including tax law changes, to insure you're taking advantage of all the deductions and credits available.  Does it make sense to save a hundred dollars or so doing a tax return yourself when you miss out on thousands of dollars worth of deductions?  Of course not.

Ignoring the benefits of getting all of your deductions (aka a BIG tax refund), there are also other problems which can arise from doing tax returns yourself... using the wrong tax forms, proofreading mistakes, assuming that the tax return software will "catch your mistakes", the time and headache when you're not 100% sure, or just flat out guessing.

As if this isn't stressful enough, getting it wrong will result in dealing with the collections department at the IRS.  Want to get it right this year?  Want to have your old tax returns checked for missed deductions and credits?  Call Dickmann Tax Group at (888)266-0962 and we'll answer any question or concern you may have.
