Preparing for the 2023 Tax Season

2022 is coming to an end and while it may seem a little early to start thinking about the 2023 tax season, it is actually the perfect time to begin taking inventory and preparing. Read on for helpful tips for this upcoming tax season. 

Home edit: organization is key

It is time to get organized. Taxes can be tricky, but tracking and documenting things like mileage, donations and business expenses are critical when it comes time to consider deductions. Not to worry, there are many different ways to keep track of these expenses, from traditional paper receipts to more technical options like mileage tracking apps or digital document storage. Whatever method is used, the goal is to have access to all the necessary information when it comes time to hand it over to a CPA.

Trade and track 

With increased focus on and investment in digital currency, it is crucial to correctly track trades when investing in cryptocurrency. The tax implications of cryptocurrency can sometimes be confusing, so consult a CPA. 

One must adjust 

Changes like a new baby, or a decrease in the number of dependents, can affect tax liability, so adjustments on the W-4 need to reflect that. Planning ahead and periodic check-ups on finances can help to spot needed adjustments before there are impacts. Working with a CPA and a financial advisor can help so proper steps are taken to stay on track throughout the year.
