Part 3 of 7 from the Series: Use The Checklists and Flowcharts To Enhance Your Planning Process.
Offer to review a client’s tax return by sending this email. By referencing the “As Someone Who Is Working, What Issues Should I Consider When Reviewing My Tax Return?” checklist and the “As A Retiree, What Issues Should I Consider When Reviewing My Tax Return?” checklist, you help to drive home just how important it is to have a second set of eyes review the tax return.
Email Subject Line: It’s time to review your tax returns
During the months of March and April, we want to help you identify planning opportunities (and spot potential issues) with your tax returns.
If we work together now, we can help identify…
- If there was a change in your finances last year and you are paying excess estimated taxes;
- Additional ways to reduce your tax liability for this year; and
- Possible omissions or mistakes made by the tax preparer.
It is opportune to review your tax returns now, because there is still time to address issues before next year (and you may have time to amend returns, if needed).
Reviewing tax returns can be daunting and difficult given the many state and federal complexities and often changing rules. Tracking your exposure to various taxes (e.g. ordinary income tax, capital gains tax, the alternative minimum tax, the net investment income tax, etc.), and your rights to various credits and deductions, requires time and effort.
To assist you in reviewing your filings, we have a checklist for retired taxpayers [link to your white labeled version from your website of Google Doc] and one for taxpayers that are still working [link to your white labeled version from your website or Google Doc]. Each checklist outlines nearly two dozen considerations to help guide you through your returns and circumstances.
While the checklists can help you spot great ways to identify all the different opportunities to consider, we are always available to meet with you and discuss your finances and goals, and to identify what the best opportunities are for you.
