Frequently Asked Questions

What if I can't pay my taxes?
You should always file your tax returns on time, even if you can't pay. This will help you avoid stiff penalties. After you file, your tax accountant can intervene and help arrange a payment plan or file an offer in compromise if you qualify.
What if I've made a mistake on my return?
An amended return can be filed within three years after filing.
What if I can't file my taxes on time?
Your accountant will file an extension for you. This will avoid additional penalties. You will still be charged interest on any amounts due.
What if I'm audited?
Fox and Associates can represent you for a nominal fee. We can help you limit the scope of the audit and avoid additional issues.
What can I deduct as business expenses?
All ordinary and necessary expenses are deductible. Keep your receipts -- they are like money in your pocket.
What can I deduct for my automobile?
A percentage of your actual vehicle expenses used for business purposes can be deducted or you may be able to use the standard mileage method, currently 50.5 cents per mile.
How long should I keep my financial records?
Receipts, cancelled checks and other documents that prove an item of income or a deduction appearing on your return should be kept for four years from the filing date. Some records should be kept indefinitely, such as property records.

The following events are good times to check with your tax planner:
  • Before the sale of property
