Many people are anxious every year when tax season rolls around; because they are never sure they have filed their taxes correctly. Sometimes they procrastinate until the tax deadline, or worse, they don’t file at all.
However, there are some very good reasons to get a jump on your income tax filing. Mesa sees tax preparers on every corner come tax season, but if you file ahead of the rush, you won’t have to worry about feeling anxious as the deadline approaches.
Lower Your Chances of Identity Theft
A risk that goes along with income tax filing Mesa residents know all too well is identity theft. Identity thieves target tax returns every year, and are able to get their hands on your return with a single security breach that gives them access to your social security number.
Identity theft during tax season is incredibly common; if a tax return is filed with your information before you submit your paperwork, it is a long process to try to recover your refund. Not only that, but once they have official tax documents, it is easier for them to open other accounts under your name.
Get Your Refund Faster
By filing at the beginning of the tax season, you put yourself at the front of the queue, typically getting your refund faster. This can be crucial if you have your tax refund earmarked for a specific purpose. With the exception of people claiming specific tax credits, which can only begin to be processed after a set date, the earlier you file your taxes, the earlier you will receive your refund.
Avoid Fees or an Audit by Being Prepared
Once the deadline for submitting your tax return has passed, you may incur additional fees for filing late. Filing early means you never have to worry about whether you filled everything out correctly because it gives you enough time to avoid rushing.
If you do file your taxes with incorrect information, you run the very real risk of being audited. This can be a drawn out, difficult process that requires you to produce a lot of paperwork that is often difficult to find. The earlier and more prepared you are, the less likely it is that you are going to get audited.
