Tax Assistance & Protection Plan
HOW ARE THE TAPP NETWORK FIRMS SELECTED?
The tax services received by Tax Assistance & Protection Plan (TAPP) members are provided by TAPP Network Firms.
Our Network Firms are only selected after we’ve done a thorough review of the firm’s practices and tax professionals.
Because each firm will handle a large geographic area, all of our Network Firms must employ an Enrolled Agent (EA).
Network Firms are paid in advance by TAPP so they can focus only on providing great tax services and not billing.
I ALREADY HAVE A TAX PREPARER. WHY SHOULD I ENROLL IN TAPP?
The answer is simple. Always get a second opinion. By relying on only one tax preparer, you are limited to their knowledge and expertise. With TAPP you have the ability to gain tax knowledge for yourself and utilize the tax experience of tax professionals who have been tested on their ability to research and understand complex tax law.
You are responsible for your tax return, even if it was prepared by someone else. if there are missed deductions, only you are affected. If there are errors, you are 100% responsible for
paying the additional taxes, penalties, and interest even if the tax return was prepared by someone else.
MY BUSINESS IS NEW OR ISN'T PROFITABLE. DO I NEED A TAX PROFESSIONAL?
The answer is yes. Business returns are required, even if your business is new or has a loss. If they are not filed, you could pay late filing penalties up to $195 per month for a corporate tax return that is filed late. Even if there is a loss.
Contrary to popular belief, FORMING AN LLC OR INCORPORATING DOES NOT PROTECT YOU FROM PERSONAL LIABILITY FOR ALL BUSINESS TAX DEBT. Many business owners have lost their businesses due to tax debt, only to discover they are personally liable and cannot discharge the debt in personal or business bankruptcy. Getting the help you need before starting your business is key to avoiding noncompliance.
I HAVE A SIMPLE TAX RETURN. WHY SHOULD I USE TAPP?
Many people believe they have simple tax returns because they are not aware of all of the tax saving deductions and credits available to them. The tax professionals at our Netwok Firms have found thousands of dollars in missed deductions while reviewing tax returns people have either prepared themselves or were prepared by an inexperienced or incompetent tax preparers.
With a TAPP membership our highly qualified and experienced tax professionals will review your last 3 years of tax returns for missed deductions, credits, and other tax saving opportunities. Each year we'll provide year-round tax information and when it's time to file your taxes we can review your tax return before it's filed or file it for you as part of your membership.
WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT TAXES CAN COST YOU AND YOUR FAMILY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS EVERY YEAR
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TAX PREPARER AND A TAX PROFESSIONAL?
Anyone that prepares tax returns for a fee is a tax preparer. Currently there are no minimum education, testing, or background checks required to prepare tax returns.
However, tax professionals have gone the extra step to obtain the credentials that prove their ability to understand complex tax law. In order to obtain these credentials, tax professionals have strict continuing education, background check, and ethical requirements. Please click the link below for more information.
