IT’S TAX TIME!!! Everyone’s favorite time of year, right? Um, maybe not so much. Unfortunately, everyone has to deal with it. What do they say? “In this world, nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes.” -Benjamin Franklin
If you’re like many people, the thought of doing your taxes – or even just getting everything ready so someone else can do them for you – stresses you out at least a little. Most law firms have accountants who handle the filing of their corporate taxes. Wouldn’t it be easier to quickly print out a few reports and email them over to your CPA and let them take over rather than sifting through mounds of receipts and bank statements?
There are many different pieces to the financial puzzle when it’s time to file your firm’s taxes. Your accountant will probably want copies of your year end and January bank statement and reconciliation. You will need your basic financial statements like your balance sheet and income statement as well as a working trial balance as of the year-end. Your CPA will want every “i” dotted and “t” crossed when it comes to your firm’s finances.
