My niece who’s abroad was telling me that aside from the Immigration Department, the most feared government agency where she is, is the IRS. “Here”, she says “people do not monkey around with tax reportage”.
Because it is a fact that governments levy individual and corporate taxes because these taxes are used to run the government itself. Taxes are used to build infrastructure, enforce laws, maintain public order and safety, not to mention management of education, health, maintenance of public transport systems plus many other things.
So I asked my niece how she does hers.
When tax compliance time begins, most tax payers find it hard to prepare their tax collection forms. She articulated that this year, she had to fill out an irs extension form 2011. She had to address this “difficult task” not by hiring an accountant but by engaging professionals who are good at taxes.
These professionals help people address tax payment concerns the whole year round. They provide tax payments, tax preparation, tax refund services, etc., for those who do not have the time to accurately prepare income tax computations. “It eases my burden”, she says and to that I said, “good for you”.
