Sometimes, it makes sense to have someone else to do your taxes.
If you have complex taxes, an accountant can make your life a little easier — and be worth every penny.
However, your accountant can’t work miracles. He or she can only prepare your taxes based on information that you provide. This means that you need to bring in everything needed to have your taxes done properly.
What to Bring to Your Accountant for Taxes
First of all, you need to have all of your personal information.
Bring in your Social Security number, as well as the numbers associated with your dependents. The first time I used an accountant for taxes, I didn’t bring in my son’s Social Security number. It slowed things down a little bit, since I had to go back home to get it.
