As most are probably aware, this year’s tax season is now in full swing. Entrusting the task of tax preparation to professionals is one of the wisest steps you can take to eliminate stress and save you both time and money. However, it’s important to ensure you are properly prepared for your meeting. Here’s how to make the most of your relationship with your CPA.

Develop a Relationship

When you find a CPA that you trust and are comfortable with, it’s best to remain with them over the years and develop a relationship. Doing so will allow them to not only better understand your goals and objectives, but also become better equipped to assist you with your individual finances. He or she will be able to develop more effective strategies each year to save you and your business increased amounts of money during the tax seasons and ultimately become your trusted, personal financial advisor. Furthermore, with knowledge about your taxes over the years and your business expenditures, he or she will then have the ability to easily point out any discrepancies or missing information.

Be Completely Honest

Withholding information from your CPA can only hurt you, so it’s important to provide all the necessary details required for the best tax preparation possible. Your CPA is there to help with your taxes and to save you the most amount of money. In some situations, clients are embarrassed to report information, such as certain medical expenses or expenditures. However, your CPA is never there to judge you, but simply to help you. You should eventually feel comfortable enough with your professional relationship to disclose any financial matter.

Always Consult with Your CPA

During your initial meeting with your CPA, and during the following visits after, be sure to run any new ideas or purchases by them. They will be able to determine whether or not that decision is a wise one, or which alternative option would be more beneficial to reach your goals. As mentioned before, your CPA is essentially your trusted advisor, so be sure to discuss new tax strategies, possible deductions, and related items with them first. Doing so can save you a lot of time and money during the future tax seasons to come.
