Because the area of tax preparation and corporate tax is incredibly complex, we have provided a list of frequently asked questions, which you can read more about below.

Are there deadlines for filing my tax returns?
Remembering important tax deadlines can be key to avoiding costly mistakes down the road. If a deadline falls on a weekend, the deadline will automatically be extended to the following Monday. In addition, if you are unable to meet a deadline, you may be able to petition for a 6-month extension or a 5-month extension for LLC returns.

Tax return deadlines in the State of California are as follows:

  • W-2 and 1099 Forms - Must be mailed by employers before January 31st
  • Personal Returns - April 15th
  • Business Returns - March 15th
  • Partnership and LLC Returns - April 15th
  • Self-Employed Tax Returns for Business Tax Renewal - Last day of February
  • Employer Payroll Forms & Taxes - Required every quarter on April 30th, July 31st, October 31st, and January 31st

What records should I keep along with my tax returns, and how long do I need to keep them?
In the event that any of your tax deductions should be questioned, having proof of documentation will be key to avoiding serious inspections or audits. We suggest that our clients always keep records of bank statements, credit card statements, cancelled checks, invoices, and receipts. Mileage logs, meal expenses, and other records for business purposes can also be important. Donations or non-cash contributions, such as clothes or other property, should be verified with proof of receipt or acknowledgement letters from charities.

Can I check the status of my tax refund?
Certainly! There are many ways to check the status of a refund. Due to the processing timeframe in California, you may receive your state tax refund within 7 to 10 business days if you filed your return online, or 8 to 12 weeks if you mailed your return. You can access your refund status on many different platforms, including the State of California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) or through the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

Why should I hire a tax preparer?
Very few people actually enjoy filing their own taxes. Even with the help of computer software programs, the risk of running into problems still exists. In addition, computer software programs are not formulated to take into account special circumstances or your unique financial portfolio. Not only are we prepared, trained, and licensed to take on complex tax issues, but we also offer personal and ethical tax services that can help our clients maximize their returns while minimizing the risk of unnecessary IRS involvement.
