"When personal service and affordable value are your expectations"

Do I Need a Professional Tax Preparer?

We all like to think that we ‘should’ be able to prepare our own taxes!  Why is that?

A few questions to ask yourself – if you know the answers – good for you!

  • Should we do a pension split?
  • Who should claim our medical expenses?  What expenses are deductible?
  • Who should claim our donations?  Should I claim the donations each year or save them up?
  • What is a fitness credit?
  • What is a caregiver credit – can I use it if I look after my aunt?  My brother?
  • Can I rent my principal residence and not have a capital gains issue when I sell it?
  • Am I sure that I am taking every deduction or credit that I am entitled to?

(We can come up with more if you need them)
