Records Needed for Tax Filing
Proper year-round record keeping is the first step to ensure your taxes are filed accurately.
We've compiled a list of documents that you should bring to your tax prep appointment. Each tax situation is unique so please view this list as a guide and NOT an exhaustive list. Plan on bringing those documents that pertain to your unique circumstance. Don't worry if you forget to bring something. There are many ways to correspond with your accountant outside of your face to face meeting. One option for file exchange is through our secure online portal. With a unique log in and password, you can exchange files with your accountant through a portal dedicated to your individual account.
Don't have a portal for your account? Please ask your accountant about setting one up, or contact them prior to your tax appointment through our contact form.
