Tax Preparation Help

Tax Preparation For Businesses And Individuals

For businesses and individuals alike, preparing for each tax season can be a very time-consuming process. However, it’s imperative for companies and individuals to consider tax preparation almost equally as important as filing taxes. One of the best forms of tax resolution is to prevent problems before they happen.


Hiring professionals to prepare your tax returns comes with many benefits. One of those benefits is they know what they’re looking for when making your returns. A tax professional can prevent any future tax issues from coming up. Professionals can eliminate any errors that could occur simply because of the taxpayer’s lack of experience or understanding. Having your taxes prepared by experts like Platinum Tax Defenders can help mitigate any future need for tax resolution services.

Getting help from a tax professional for tax preparation can also help you avoid getting into tax debt. If you prepare correctly, you can prevent yourself, or your business, from getting into tax debt in the future.


The IRS allows anyone with a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) to prepare a tax return for a client. However, the IRS does draw the line between tax practitioners in terms of their representation rights. Professionals who have unlimited representation rights are enrolled agents, certified public accountants, and attorneys. Tax professionals with these credentials may represent their clients on any matters, including audits, payment/collection issues, and appeals. The team at Platinum Tax Defenders features enrolled agents, certified public accountants, attorneys, and x-IRS tax attorneys. We are experienced and equipped to prevent you from running into any tax trouble in the future. Here is more information on these three types of professionals that are here to help you at Platinum Tax Defenders.

  • Enrolled agents:

    The IRS licenses enrolled agents. Agents must take a comprehensive exam to demonstrate proficiency in federal tax planning, individual and business tax return preparation, and representation.

  • Certified Public Accounts:

    These professionals have licenses from state boards of accountancy, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories. To earn their license, CPAs must pass the Uniform CPA Examination before they can begin their practice. CPAs have also obtained a degree in accounting from an accredited college or university. A CPA can offer services such as tax preparation and planning.

  • Attorneys:

    Attorneys receive licenses from state courts, the District of Columbia or their designees, such as the state bar. Generally speaking, attorneys have a degree in law and have passed a bar exam. Some attorneys specialize in tax preparation and planning. Platinum Tax Defenders also works with x-IRS tax attorneys, who are intimately knowledgeable of the inner workings of the IRS.

    There are many types of tax return preparers, including those who do not have a professional credential. It’s essential to make sure you are working with a preparer who is skilled in tax preparation. You can trust the professionals at Platinum Tax Defenders to keep the personal information you share with them confidential. By choosing Platinum Tax Defenders to help with your tax preparation, you can guarantee you’re getting outstanding and professional service.


Everyone must file their taxes each year. It’s our civic duty to do so. Can you prepare your taxes on your own? Of course, many services can help you file and submit your tax returns on your own. However, many taxpayers will admit that filing income tax returns have become an arduous tax. Filing tax returns becomes increasingly complicated as you go through various stages of life that affect your tax situation. Therefore, millions of Americans look for help with preparing their tax returns every year. If you’re expecting a large tax refund or have complicated claims, it’s beneficial to consult a professional. Platinum Tax Defenders can catch credits, deductions, and other savings opportunities that you might miss in filing on your own. In addition to helping you prepare your tax returns, we can help you with audit assistance and review past returns.


Before you meet with your tax preparation professional, there are some items that you’ll need to round up in advance:

  • Photo ID
  • Social security cards for you and your family
  • Notice of Individual Taxpayer Identification Number and proof of foreign status, if applicable
  • Dates of birth for you and your family
  • Wage and earning statements such as W-2 forms and 1099s for all employers
  • Bank statements of interest and dividends
  • A copy of your tax returns for the previous year
  • Bank account number and routing number
  • Daycare information
  • Receipts for any other items or purchases you know you will want to write off

If you are married and filing a joint tax return, it’s necessary for both you and your spouse to be present to sign required forms. If your taxes seem too complicated to file, get in touch with the professionals at Platinum Tax Defenders.
