Business Spotlight: Get Your Taxes Started Early With Help From Michelle Tourjee, CPA

Woman in business attire You may want to put off your tax preparation until the last minute, but Bradenton CPA Michelle Tourjee of Michelle Tourjee CPA Tax Services, LLC, recommends a different approach in 2020:

Start early!

By starting early, you can work out any questions that might arise and avoid the rush that comes as the tax due date approaches.

Another tip from Tourjee: Have all of your tax-related paperwork, including 1099s, W2s, and receipts from the past year in one folder so they are easy to review. That will make Tourjee’s job easier—and avoid headaches for you in the long run.

Working with a CPA like Michelle Tourjee can bring you peace of mind in knowing your taxes are done accurately instead of relying on DIY tax software programs or tax preparers who may or may not be up-to-date on recent tax law changes.
Michelle has extensive knowledge of the latest tax laws. She also knows the right questions to ask to help guide your tax filings. Although the IRS tax laws are extensive, the right decision on how to interpret them for each client may vary slightly. Let Michelle help make those complex decisions for you with her personalized service.

Michelle can help with both long-term tax planning and tax questions that arise throughout the year. This can include re-evaluating your tax situation as you experience certain life changes or make a home or business sale. At any point, tax planning can help you to possibly lower your taxes.
