April 15 may seem like it’s a long way off, but make no mistake: Tax season is upon us. Make your life easier and enjoy peace of mind by hiring Robert P. McMillen & Associates in Palo Alto to handle your tax returns for you.
While you may not be used to hiring a professional to do your taxes, this is the year to do so, according to Robert McMillen. That’s because the many tax code changes from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, just going into effect for this year’s returns, are going to affect virtually everyone. Homeowners, residents of high-tax states like California and families are going to be among those impacted the most.
One of the biggest changes is that taxpayers are only allowed to deduct up to $10,000 in state and local taxes this year. The new law also eliminates personal exemptions.
“Many people don’t realize how much these changes are going to impact them,” McMillen said. “I think it’s going to be an eye-opener when they get their taxes done this year.”
McMillen has 30 years of experience preparing taxes and has been spending the last year mastering the nuances of the tax reform that will be hitting taxpayers this season. He can make sure you get all the credits and deductions you deserve, and let you rest easy knowing that everything is done correctly.
In addition to the new tax rules, there are many other reasons you may benefit from hiring a professional, including:
• If you recently moved from another state and have to file multiple returns
• If you started your own business or are self-employed
• If you had a dramatic change in income or investments
From now until April 15, Robert P. McMillen & Associates offers evening and weekend appointments for your convenience.
