Tax season is just around the corner. This is the time of year many of our clients have questions regarding their home and their tax return.
If you bought or sold a home in 2016, an experienced tax professional will help you take advantage of valuable mortgage interest and property tax deductions. If you’re a first-time homeowner, you could potentially deduct some of your closing costs. A specialized tax pro will show you the ropes when it comes to claiming those expenses on your tax return.
Worried about the cost? There is good news: The fees you pay a tax adviser may be deductible on next year’s tax return. And from our friends at Dave Ramsey, “a recent survey of 2,000 Facebook users found that people who use a tax pro receive an average of $791 more back from the IRS compared to those who use tax software. What a win!”
