Income Tax Preparation

Penrod Accounting, LLC offers personal income tax preparation because Dawn believes there are a small handful of people who can successfully prepare their own tax returns, but that the majority of us need help. If you own a home and have a child, you may be able to get by without professional help. But, what are the deductions you are missing? With over 30 years of experience preparing tax returns, Dawn is aware of many deductions people can take and how they apply to certain situations. Once you start adding things to your tax returns, things become more complicated and the room for errors expands. A small home business might seem easy with the tax software available, but not being aware of what you can or cannot deduct will cost you money in the long run. Financial Investments and Rental Properties are portions of a tax return where many people make costly mistakes. Receiving Partnership or S-Corp income can be tricky unless you know the rules for passive income. Penrod Accounting, LLC provides the services needed to avoid these common pitfalls.

Income Tax Planning

Changes occur all the time that affect your income taxes. Dawn can work with her clients throughout the year to ensure a change in June doesn’t bring a shock in April. Getting married or divorced, having children, buying a house, sending a child off to college and various other life events will change what your tax return looks like from one year to the next. Proper planning for these changes will help ease the stress of tax time. Dawn can also work with your Financial Planner to make sure your investment decisions do not have an adverse effect on your tax situation.

Dealing With Tax-Related Identity Theft

Everyone is hearing about it and quite a few people are dealing with it – fraudulent tax returns filed against unsuspecting individuals social security numbers. This is never an easy situation, but Dawn has helped quite a few people get through this and make sure the proper information is reported.

Federal and State Tax Resolution

Receiving a notice from the IRS or state agency can be a frightening experience. Dawn has worked with the IRS and state agencies to get the best possible outcome to these situations on behalf of many individuals.
