Does Uncle Sam want you…to pay up? If you’re worried that you might owe Uncle Sam money this year, do not, repeat do not, put off doing your tax return, say Janet and Susan of Advantage 3 Tax & Financial Services.
“First of all, coming in early and finding out if you owe and how much, relieves anxiety. It’s that not knowing that eats away at you and drives you crazy,” says Janet.
“It also gives you a chance to get your money together instead of waiting until the last minute to file and then having to max out your credit cards or pull from your retirement savings,” she adds.
“Plus, the sooner you file this year and see where things are at," shares business partner Susan, "the better you can plan for next year. I show clients how to adjust their payroll exemptions and make other changes to get ahead of the ball."
And, if you do owe, pay as much as you can with the return, the duo encourages. The IRS charges penalties for not filing on time and not paying on time, but Janet and Susan can help you deal with all those pesky details that might make you owe more if you don’t pay attention to them.
So if visions of debtors’ prison are haunting your dreams, just pick up the phone and call Advantage 3. They’ll put your tax nightmares to bed and help you see the light of day.
