Accounting Fees for Tax Preparation.
If you prepare your taxes you are allowed to deduct the cost of software you paid as well as any ‘e filing’ services that you paid to. Now let me ask you something. Have a question on where to put this on the 1040 form? You are entitled as the Tax Payer to deduct fees you pay a professional accountant to do your taxes. You better find a brand new tax preparer, Therefore if not.
You have someone prepare your favorite taxes, right? Make sure if you are having someone prepare you taxes, to ask them about deducting the fees they charge you on your tax return. Dues, Initiation fees for memberships, etcetera Sometimes people for get that. These are deductible on your tax return. Have a question on where to claim this deduction on the 1040? You pay union dues, right? Of course have a question on this? To be honest I am sure loads of people have refinanced or somewhat, with mortgage interest rates low now.
