Why should I file my taxes?

IRS matches copies of the income tax documents you receive to your tax return. If you do not file a tax return, IRS will create a tax return for you after several years of non-filing. If you do not file, you cannot dispute the amount of tax they assess to you. Even if you owe taxes and you do not pay, you are at least starting the 10 year statute of limitations for IRS collections. If you do not file you never start the statute of limitations and you will owe the IRS, potentially forever.

Why Brown Financial over Turbotax or other similar services? 

Even if you enter your tax documents in the system, and answer the Turbo tax questions correctly, it still does not mean your tax return has been prepared correctly. If you omit information the IRS & state will send you notices and you will have to hire an accounting firm to represent you, which will cost more than having a firm prepare the tax return in the first place. In most cases, when we review tax returns that have been self-prepared, deductions were missed which could have resulted in higher refunds for the client, if they had hired a firm to prepare the return.
