Washington , DC (PressExposure) March 13, 2012 -- It's February, the month of Valentine's hearts and Martin Luther King Jr. It's also time to start thinking about your taxes and hiring a New Jersey tax lawyer to help you minimize your tax liability. Although taxes are not due until April, taxes are one thing you should never procrastinate. Whether you're making a routine filing or facing an IRS audit, prepare your taxes early.
One reason to file your taxes early is the peace of mind you gain from having your taxes settled. You know how much you owe and you won't get hit with any unexpected charges. You can budget for months, if necessary, to make sure that you have the money to pay your taxes and still have enough money for other expenses. Filing in April can cause stress as you struggle to file your taxes by the deadline.
The other important reason to prepare your taxes early is that it gives you some leeway if something goes wrong. Waiting until the last minute is a recipe for disaster; if important files go missing, your lawyer or accountant suddenly gets sick, there's an international tax dispute, or it turns out your business tax partner was dishonest, you could face penalties and other serious negative consequences. Filing early builds in time to recover from nearly any crisis the tax filing process could create.
