Preparing your own income tax return can be a task that leaves you with more questions than answers.

Whether we like it or not, today’s tax laws are so complicated that filing a relatively simple return can be confusing. It is just too easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled. Even if you use a computer software program, there’s no substitute for the assistance of an experienced tax professional.

At Lori A. Carlino, CPA, your tax return will be checked and rechecked by our computer software to identify any potential problems that the IRS may look at more closely, and review the mathematics to limit IRS contacts.

Your tax return can be filed electronically so you will get a refund back quicker.

Our staff will show you how to adjust your payroll withholding to get more money back each week. Why give the IRS an interest free loan for up to 16 months if you don’t have to?

We will show you potential deductions to limit your tax liability for next year. In addition, we will give you a sheet of commonly overlooked deductions to limit the following year’s tax liability.

Books a mess? No problem!

If you own a small business and haven’t kept up your bookkeeping, don’t worry. We can help you.
