We believe one of the most important decisions you can make regarding your income taxes is whether to get your tax preparation done with the help of a professional, versus trying to go at it alone.
A significant benefit of partnering with Dakotaland Financial Services is convenience and time savings. The hours you could save yourself from trying to read through and understand the IRS's form instructions and publications maybe extensive. If you put a monetary value on your time, you might find that the hours you spend laboring over your tax return ends up costing you more than the services of a tax professional.
There is a lot of room for error when it comes to filing tax forms, but you can minimize the risk by working with a tax professional. Dakotaland Financial Services can also help you avoid overpaying taxes by properly identifying all the tax credits and/or tax deductions you're eligible for.
Cost vs. Savings
At Dakotaland Financial Services our competitive pricing schedule is flexible and based on what you need versus flat rates. This allow you the peace of mind knowing your taxes are done correctly and at a cost you can afford. Keep in mind, the fees associated with professional tax preparation may be deductible on your income tax return as long as you meet certain eligibility requirements.
Choosing to prepare and submit your own tax returns, with our without a tax preparation software program, does not provide you with the guarantee of representation against a potential tax audit. If the need should arise, this is a benefit included in our tax preparation service offerings at Dakotaland Financial Services.
