As soon as the new year begins, businesses must already start thinking about the upcoming tax season. And although the US tax code is supposed to be less complicated now, the live help TurboTax is offering from its network of CPAs and Enrolled Agents (EAs) is one option to consider.

According to the company, TurboTax Live is guaranteed to help you file your taxes with confidence. The CPAs and EAs will answer all of your questions, including the new tax law changes by reviewing your return line by line before you file.

If you are a small business owner filing your own taxes, this is one way of ensuring you will not make costly mistakes which will come back to haunt you.

On the company blog, Intuit (NASDAQ: INTU) says the TurboTax Live service will be available long after April 15th so you can get year-round answers to your tax questions.

Tax Penalties

When you file your taxes the mistakes you make can end up costing you a lot of money. The penalties the IRS asses are in many cases based on percentages. And depending on your tax bracket, the 10 and 20 percent penalties the agency levies can run into the tens of thousands of dollars.

If you are not well versed with the tax code, this is not one of the tasks you should be carrying out as part of the learning process in running your small business.

Until you are 100% sure of what you are doing pay a professional to do your taxes, or have them go through your paperwork before you file.

Which is why the TurboTax Live service makes sense for all the DIYers out there.
