A note on tax refunds...Many people believe that the goal of a tax return is to get the largest refund possible...and it is our mission to do that legally for you based upon the information you provide.  It is important to note that for MOST people unless you qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit, which is one of the few credits allowing a taxpayer to get refunded more than they paid in, a refund is a return of your own money which was overpaid in the previous year returned to you, without interest.

A common misconception is that a refund is the governments money.  The reality in many cases is, that a refund is your money...which you, in effect loaned to the taxing authorities and they are returning a portion of, a year (or more) later...without interest. 

Proper tax planning means LEGALLY maximizing your money throughout the year and NOT giving the state and federal governments an interest free loan for a year so that you can get a larger refund at tax time.  To maximize your money all year long, we may recommend an adjustment to Form W-4 for federal and state withholding at the time a tax return is filed.

Some people see a refund as a savings account and we understand that...although it is our fiscal responsibility to maximize your available income and in fact, legally reduce monies paid for taxation.
