The 2018 tax filing season is in full swing

by | Feb 15, 2019 | Blog, Taxes | 0 comments

The 2018 tax filing season is in full swing, which means most CPA’s don’t see family, friends, or daylight until sometime after April.

The big focus this year has been on tax refunds, which were expected to be quite a bit different this year due to the tax changes that happened last year. A lot of taxpayers are finding reduced refunds or other surprises this year, for many different reasons. There are two basic ways to look at the 2018 refund situation, either you received more money each month in your paycheck and less of a refund; or that refunds are interest fee loans from you to Uncle Sam. No matter which camp you side with, if you are a business owner (especially one with an S-corp), then there is virtually no excuse for a surprise at tax filing time. GMP CMPA clients know where they stand throughout the year, and it makes tax time less stressful and nearly uneventful for them. If your CPA is not using Xero to keep track of your business and Gusto for payroll processing, then not only are you paying for inefficiencies but how are they getting you timely information?

Switching to GMP CPA for your accounting and tax needs will not only save you valuable time and money but is generally a long term investment in your business. At GMP CPA, even though we rely on software, it’s our people that count. Come say hello, Charlotte is nice this time of year.

Unfortunately, I found GMP when my mother passed. She had a trust set up and I had no experience with one. I received excellent advice prior to filing taxes, that allow for the transfer of assets with little tax implication. The tax process was simple for me, Justin took over once he had details and cleared up all question from filing our taxes. Thank you for a job well done!read more

My partner and I started our very first small business last year. Justin has been a blessing to us. Being new at all of this, we didn’t understand much of how business taxes work. Justin explained and answer all of questions that we have. He took care of everything for us throughout the year and have made life so much easier for us. I couldn’t have asked for a better CPA. Highly recommended!read more
