Why Should You Have a Lawyer Do Your Tax Prep?

With tax deadlines coming up, you should be considering who is going to complete your tax preparation for you personally or for your business. You have many options – trying to do it yourself (not recommended), going to an accounting firm, or hiring a San Francisco tax attorney.

Many people think that hiring an attorney will be too expensive and is not necessary for tax preparation. However, the reality is that hiring a skilled tax law firm can save you a lot of money in the long run.

Avoiding Costly Mistakes

Even seemingly minor errors on your tax returns can have expensive consequences. These mistakes might:

  • Lead to you paying unnecessary tax liability
  • Cause you to undergo inconvenient and lengthy tax audits down the road
  • Lead to civil penalties or even criminal charges if you are accused of tax fraud

Accounting firms are slammed during tax season, and their priority is often to get you in and out the door as quickly as possible. This increases the chances of mistakes. Our attorneys know the ins and outs of all relevant tax laws, and we work to minimize your tax liability while ensuring you are in full compliance with the law.

We handle consumer returns, partnership or corporate returns, international taxes, and other complex matters. We can address investments, commercial income, stock options, immigration issues, and more as part of our comprehensive tax preparation process.
