The following is designed to assist you as you get ready to send or bring your data to our office.  Please send me a note on the "contact us" page if you need something else that is not here.  Many clients do like to develop their own checklist of items needed each year for their taxes.  That can work well as the list often does not change a lot from year-to-year unless you have something unusual for the current year.  If you work on developing your own list, then you can more easily understand what you need to get or obtain for your income tax preparation.  That is why I have a "start your own checklist" that can be modified so you understand what you need to get for your taxes each year.

You don't have to use my lists nor transfer information to them if the information is on other pages you are sending to me or that I already have.  These are your tools to help you understand items that may be needed.  This is an attempt to list items that will apply to many tax payers.  With regular changes to income tax laws, the lists may not be complete.  My clients should stay informed about current tax topics that do apply to their situation and be sure that I know about them.
