Your 2012 Tax Preparation Checklist

What you will need to File your 2012 Tax Return:

Having the right information at hand is half the battle when doing your taxes. At My Accounting Partner, LLC we’re here to take the hassle out of figuring out what you need. Please, answer the questions below, and we’ll advise you which documents you will need based on your unique tax situation.

Let’s face it, tax season is never a fun time especially when you are not ready. A constantly changing tax code doesn’t make it any easier. Our goal is to save you time and the headache of searching for everything at the last minute.
