Before the relief of the last tax season fades, the smart business owner archives their files and begins looking forward to the next tax year. How would you rate your last tax season? Thumbs up or thumbs down? Was filing a giant headache or was the process easy breezy? Even if filing felt easy this year, there’s no better time to assess and learn from the experience.

“If you encountered no real issues, that’s great,” says Jon Markee, founder of Remote CPA. “In this case, you want to make sure you keep doing what you’re doing but also understand that every tax year is different. What may have worked for the most recent tax season might not work in the future.”

This is why it’s a good idea to contact a professional who can keep you abreast of any changes that are coming down the pipeline.

If your businesses had a bad tax season, you might’ve paid way more than you had anticipated, were thoroughly confused, or found yourself throwing your hands in the air in aggravation. Here, too, you could benefit greatly from consulting a tax pro who can help get you organized for the upcoming tax filing season. For starters, it’s good to identify deductions in advance.

“There could be instances where you didn’t get all the deductions you’re eligible for,” says Markee. “At Remote CPA, we understand the unique challenges home builders face. Our specialized approach not only simplifies your accounting processes but also ensures that every decision you make is informed, strategic, and tailored to the unique dynamics of the construction industry.”

Organization is imperative when it comes to tax filing. Those who have worked with Remote CPA have found that their services have revolutionized the way they manage their projects.

One client said, “Remote CPA has transformed our financial management, making it easier to stay on schedule, under budget, and more importantly, compliant with all tax obligations.”

One final bit of advice: don’t get into the habit of automatically filing for an extension.

“A good number of the people who fall into the delinquent bucket just started their automatic tax extension,” says Markee. “The extended deadline may seem far away, but it’ll be here before you know it.”
