San Francisco Tax Attorney Welcomes the Tax Season

Submitted by Tax Tiger on Fri, 1/22/2016 - 9:55 pm

Hello new tax season!

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen officially announced that the 2016 tax season will open on time. It will begin on Tuesday January 19 and not start off late like many had assumed due to tax changes this year. The tax season is starting on Tuesday instead of Monday because January 18th is a federal holiday – Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Koskinen stated, “ Our employees have been working hard throughout this year to make this happen. We also appreciate the help from the nation’s tax professionals and the software community, who are critical to helping taxpayers during the filing season.”

While it would be easier to have a professional San Francisco tax attorney handle your tax return paperwork, you can still hand in your individual tax returns starting that Tuesday. The internal Revenue Service is still accepting paper forms that can be mailed to them or you can always go online and do them electronically. As of right now, the IRS expects that 80% of people filing their individual tax returns will most likely be doing them through online software.

Tax time money


Will you get your tax refund early?

It’s hard to say whether you will get your tax refund early if you turn in your paperwork early. Some online software companies such as TurboTax have already started accepting tax returns but that doesn’t necessarily mean you will get a tax refund the next day. They will merely be holding onto the filings until the IRS begins accepting them. If you are to use a tax lawyer in San Francisco, they will also give you the same treatment as online services and hold onto your tax return.

But unlike online software companies, a tax attorney in San Francisco, like Tax Tiger, can go out of the way for you more so than an online service. One of the perks of having a tax resolution company assist you in the new year is because they are up to date on new laws as well as trained in the proper procedures to make sure you can personally receive the best refund possible and not have to owe an arm and a leg. And if you do end up by owing the IRS money, a tax lawyer can help bring the price down or even possibly eliminate it!

Whichever way you decide to take care of your tax return – remember to do it by April 15, which is the filing deadline!
