You may have just recovered from tax day 2013. You may be worried about your next quarterly tax payment or other payment that you owe the IRS. You may not want to take the time now to think about tax day 2014. However, careful planning throughout 2013 can make April 2014 less daunting and a call to a Tulsa tax attorney less likely.
5 Things to Think About Today
In order to minimize the chances of problems with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or Oklahoma Tax Commission (OTC) in the future, you may think about:
- Dealing with your outstanding taxes, interest, and penalties now. Your prompt attention is necessary to keep this debt from accruing and your problems from becoming more complicated.
- Paying your estimated taxes. Estimated quarterly taxes are required for some taxpayers.
- Your current year tax deductions. By January 2014, it will be too late to take 2013 deductions.
- Keeping careful documentation of taxes paid, deductions, income, and other relevant data. The IRS may require proof.
- Working with an experienced and ethical accountant. Your accountant may be able to help you avoid tax problems.
Of course, despite your most diligent efforts, the unexpected might occur. You might make a mistake that later results in a tax problem, or you may find yourself in difficult financial times and unable to pay the IRS or OTC. In those cases, calling a tax lawyer in Tulsa will be an important part of your tax strategy.
