CAMBRIDGE, Ontario - March 27, 2014 - PRLog -- CAMBRIDGE, ON – March 24, 2014 – Henry Piatek, owner of Profit Financial Services, recently set out to inform his blog readers about preparing for their annual tax planning appointment.  Arriving prepared is crucial to the success of the appointment.  Without the proper documents the accountant will not be able to assist his or her client.  Piatek explains, “To avoid wasting both your time and that of the tax accountant you will be working with, you should carefully prepare in advance all the documents you need to bring with you to the meeting.”  Henry suggests creating a folder that will be updated year after year.  He then gives details on what the folder should include.  He says, “It is a very good idea to create a folder containing all the documentation your tax accountant will need, and categorize them depending on what they represent. By separating your documents into categories, you will have a much easier time determining whether all the documents you need to file your tax return are in the possession of your tax accountant.”

The first category of this folder Piatek talks about is income.  He states, “Declaring your income is serious business, and your folder should include very specific information regarding all forms of income that your family has. This includes information on you and your spouse’s main jobs, any side income that you might be earning, as well as information on your investments and dividends.”  Henry’s company, Profit Financial Services, a small business accounting firm in Cambridge (http://profitfinancialservices.com/services/accounting-services-for-small-business), recommends that any documentation regarding incoming revenue should be filed in this category.

Next, Piatek discusses banking and then deductions.  The banking category is simply a record of one’s bank account information.  In regards to deductions Piatek says, “There are two types of deductions: non-business deductions and business deductions. The first type, non-business deductions, should include the mortgage and property taxes on your house, student loans (not all student loans are deductible, so if you have any student loans you will have to check if yours are), as well as any information on charitable donations throughout the year – and here you can include church donations, as well as donations for any charitable events.”  He continues by saying, “The documents included in the business deductions category depend on your and your spouse’s status on the labor market.”
