The 2013 tax season is ending October 15, 2014 if you do not file your 2013 tax return by then; you can have a late filing penalty added to what you owe. We will be open Wednesday October 8th and 15th. We will be closed for a week or two after the 15th. If you have not yet done your 2013 tax return please call us at 757-425-8463. We can still electronically file tax returns through the end of November, so if you have a refund coming, we can still get it for you quickly.
OUR YEARLY OFFICE SCHEDULE: We are open 6 days a week during the tax season (January through May) and then closed during the summer, then we are open from September through Christmas at reduced hours. We do old prior year tax returns and amended returns at that time as well as the current year, and business incorporations, wills and powers of attorney forms.
If you are thinking about starting a new business or you are already running one, or you have been hired as an independent contractor (paid on a 1099-Misc form with no tax taken out), Dr. O’Connor does workshops for new businesses where he goes over what expenses are tax deductible, the benefits of incorporating, etc. The next workshop is Monday October 6th at 7:30 pm. Please call to register. Cost $20.
Every year Dr. O’Connor teaches the course he created, “How To Pay No Taxes”, covering everything about taxes from A to Z. The class will start the last week of October and will be 8 weeks long, one night per week. We are thinking of either Monday or Wednesday nights depending on what night is good for everyone. This class is helpful for individuals to use for their own finances, and also anyone who wants to work as an assistant tax preparer for us has to take this class to start their training.
Looking ahead to 2015, we will be opening after the Christmas holidays about Tuesday January 6th and open full time through Wednesday April 15th. During this time we will only be doing 2014 tax returns, so if you need prior years done or amended returns, we will have to give you an appointment for that after April 15th. The one exception is that because there is a 3-year limit on getting tax refunds, so that 2011 tax returns must be filed by April 15, 2015, we will set aside some time that last week of the tax season for people who have not yet done their 2011 tax returns, so that you don’t lose your money because of being too late. For anyone who doesn’t have their paperwork together to have their taxes done by April 15th, call our office and we will do an automatic extension giving you 6 extra months to file.
Corporation tax returns are due by March 15th. If you haven’t called us for an appointment by March 1st we will call and remind you about the due date.
