It’s worth having your taxes prepared by one of the many tax professionals in Calgary for several reasons. Firstly, having them prepared and filed professionally means you can be assured of them being accurate; you also know you are going to get every possible deduction and tax break. But having a professional prepare your tax return also means they will support you in the event of an audit by the CRA (Canada Revenue Agency). Although your chances of being audited are slim, if it happens, the process can be stressful, confusing and time consuming and you’ll have to get together other paperwork and information to support your return. It’s also worth knowing the factors that increase your chances of being audited. These include being self employed, having offshore assets, working in certain fields such as construction, and routinely reporting losses from your business.
Most businesses and individuals need to pay income taxes each year. The government collects taxes in order to keep itself running. Of course, the average tax situation is quite simple and straightforward. A given person might only spend minutes on tax returns each year. Others may find themselves in more complicated situations, though. In those cases, an individual or business might need to seek out tax professionals in Calgary.
A tax professional knows how the federal tax law works. Therefore, taxpayers can entrust these individuals with their tax needs. Nobody wants to deal with taxes, and such professionals take some of the stress out of the equation. Complicated tax situations require an experienced guide to navigate through everything. Without a doubt, attempting to deal with tax issues alone is a terrible idea. Far too many people put themselves into a worse position in doing so.
