5 Reasons Why Majority of Australians Use Tax Agents
With less stress, increased accuracy and maximum refunds, it’s easy to see why the majority of Australians choose to lodge their returns with tax agents like H&R Block. Let’s face it, for those of us who aren’t accountants, tax is a complex business, which is why many people prefer to leave it to the experts to get the best possible refund. If you’re not an expert in occupation-specific deductions, it’s probably unlikely you’ll understand all the deductions you’re entitled to claim. Yesterday I Lodged my Tax return with H&R Block Tax agent in a friendly environment.
YOU SAVE TIME
While there are a fair few DIY online tax tools out there, nothing beats the convenience of sitting with your tax agent and getting the job done. While taking matters into your own hands may seem like the fastest way to lodge your taxes, DIY isn’t always the best way. In that time, your tax professional will ask you a series of questions and review your documentation to secure the best result. On the surface, you may think DIY lodging online is quicker, but for most people, this isn’t the case.
Once you add in the time to collate your information, look up your deductions and check to make sure you haven’t made any mistakes, the process takes much longer than an hour. To make the process as convenient and hassle-free as possible, it’s important to come prepared to your appointment. This tax return checklist has a list of all the documents you need to get your taxes done quickly and accurately.
