It’s tax time! Some of us are eager to file taxes knowing a big refund will be coming soon. Others, not so much knowing they will have to pay Uncle Sam back some of their hard earned money.
Regardless, even though most of us have been filing taxes for years, we still have questions about the tax process and trying to get help through can be extremely frustrating. Well, we want to help.
Better Business Bureau Serving Metro Atlanta, Athens & Northeast Georgia has created a new webpage that will hopefully help with many of the tax questions consumer’s face. No, it won’t answer all your questions or make you a tax expert but it will provide you with some valuable resources that might help ease the process.
The new webpage will allow consumers to search our Accredited Business Directory for an Accredited Tax Return Preparer, search for Certified Public Accountants and learn what basic credits and deductions are available.
It goes without saying that along with tax season also comes those dreaded attempts for people to scam you. BBB has tips to help consumers stay on the lookout for the latest and oldest scams . Don’t assume you know all the possible scams out there. Take some time to refresh your memory with these scams so you know how to protect yourself. We’ve also provided a page for IRS Resources.
Remember, your BBB offers a directory of qualified tax preparers and accountants. The IRS began accepting federal tax returns electronically on January 20, 2015 until April 15, 2015. Visit, www.bbb.org/atlanta/tax-tips2/ to check out our new webpage.
