According to the IRS, an estimated 60% of all tax returns filed annually have a mistake in them. This includes returns processed and filed by tax professionals. Be on the lookout for these common mistakes:
- Spelling errors
- Mistyped numbers
- Incorrect calculations
If you did file with a tax professional, reach out to the firm to correct the issues. There are steps you can take to help avoid an audit, like filing an amended return. If you find that they are unwilling or unable to assist, contact your Legal Resources Plan Attorney for guidance.
