Week 12's tax tip: Submit everything at the same time

Get on top of tax season with our weekly task and tip

Join us each week for a to-do and helpful tips so you’ll be ready for tax season and save money this year!

This week’s task and tip:

Submit everything at the same time: You’re in the home stretch! Consult your checklist one more time to make sure you aren’t forgetting anything. By providing everything in one-shot, you will save yourself tons of time and hassle. Your pocketbook will thank you, too. The longer it takes it complete your return, the more your accountant will charge you. And don’t be afraid to hand over your completed tax package a little early, either. Some accountants charge a premium for last-minute returns.
