Helpful Things to Know

  • How does the recent tax reform affect my taxes this year?

    Rest easy. Changes to the tax law won’t go into effect until the 2019 tax season. But, it’s never too early to start talking to an expert about how the upcoming changes will affect your tax situation next year so you can get ahead of the game.

  • What is a tax credit?

    A tax credit reduces the amount you owe to the government, dollar for dollar. For example, if you owe the IRS $1,500 but qualify for a $1,000 child tax credit, the total amount you owe would be $500.

  • What is a tax deduction?

    A tax deduction reduces your taxable income. For example, if you are taxed at the 25% tax bracket and you take the standard deduction of $6,350 for a single taxpayer, that deduction will reduce the amount owed by $1,575.

  • What’s the difference between the standard deduction and itemized tax deductions?

    The two main types of tax deductions offered are the standard deduction ($12,700 for married filing jointly and $6,350 for a single taxpayer—both are nearly doubling for the 2019 tax season) and itemized deductions like charitable donations and medical expenses. You should take the standard deduction unless itemizing your deductions adds up to more than the standard deduction.

  • What is a tax exemption?

    A tax exemption is money you can deduct from your taxable income for yourself and qualifying dependents.

  • What is a CPA?

    A CPA is a Certified Public Accountant licensed by their state.

  • What is an EA?

    An EA is an Enrolled Agent. EAs are nationally licensed tax specialists who can also represent you in the event of a tax audit.
