Prior Year Tax Returns
As the clock clicked down on the tax filing deadline the IRS and many writers wrote about the money the IRS had for refunds for 2007 tax year returns. Those returns had to be filed by the tax deadline to claim the refunds. Now it is too late to file 2007 returns to get refunds but refunds for 2008 tax year returns are now on “the clock”. The 2008 tax returns will need to be filed by the tax deadline in April of 2012 so do not procrastinate but call me now to help you file those returns.
You May Be Able To Get a Refund By Filing Your 2008 Tax Return
Over the years I have had many clients come in to file past year returns which they put off because they were sure they would owe and did not want to deal with it only to find that they had a refund coming to them. True some also did wind up owing but they were able to address their debt and put that behind them so they could focus on creating positive results in their lives. But so many times I have helped clients file past year returns only to find they were entitled to a refund. So will you owe taxes on your prior year returns? The only way to find out is to prepare the return so do not wait until next April but contact me today to get your returns prepared by a tax professional with years of experience preparing tax returns for the public.
