Tax Season Preparation is Madness

The NCAA’s March Madness is an exciting time for a lot of people. With the best in the NCAA competing for the title of champion, it is easy to get sucked into the development of the bracket and lively game weekends. But for a lot of people in the accounting world, March is a little mad for a different reason. Tax season.

When you own a business there is a lot of responsibilities you balance. Sometimes the last thing on your mind is making sure your books are cleaned up and prepared for tax season. But if you wait too long, it is a mad rush to make sure you get everything together before April. Maybe you haven’t reconciled your bank account since July. Or maybe you have some (okay, a lot) of transactions sitting in uncategorized because at the time you said, “I’ll figure out where that goes later.” Well now later is here and you are in full panic mode. How are you going to get everything completed? Instead of watching basketball games and filling out brackets, you are stuck at the office with some late nights ahead of you.

It doesn’t have to be this way. At Devine Consulting, we can make sure that your books are ready to go come tax season, so you can just hand everything over to your tax CPA and be on your way. We take care of all the accounting day-to-day tasks and make sure everything is squared away. That way come March you can do what everyone else is doing, relaxing and enjoying the games.
