Information Cody Ravalli Needs To File Your Business Tax Return

Before you meet with Cody Ravalli to prepare your business tax return, be prepared by gathering the following documents and information: 

Personal Information

You must provide basic personal information, such as your legal business name, current address, Social Security number, and Employer Identification Number (EIN).

Previous Year’s Tax Return

Bring your previous year’s tax return to help Cody better understand your business and the deductions your company has previously taken.

Financial Business Reports

Your business tax accountant will need copies of your annual financial reports, including:

  • Profit and loss or income statement
  • Balance Sheet
  • Statement of cash flows

Business Asset Information

Bring any receipts, documents, or reports related to your assets and fixed assets, including any assets bought, sold, or depreciated during the last year.

Business Loan Information

If you have taken a new business loan or line of credit in the last year, bring the loan agreement and records of any loan payments and accrued interest. This will help Cody get up to speed on your company’s total assets and liabilities.

Income Records

To verify the income amount on your profit and loss statement, provide Cody Ravalli with income records, such as bank statements, deposit slips, and sales invoices.

Business Expense Records

To verify your company’s expenses and find the correct deductions, your business tax accountant will need expense records, including:

  • Receipts
  • Bills
  • Bank statements
  • Credit card statements
  • 1098 Mortgage Interest and Property Taxes form

Deductible Expense Information

You must also provide accurate expense information if you are planning on taking any of the following deductions:

  • Home office deduction if you have a separate home office that is used exclusively for business
  • Mileage log if you use your vehicle for business purposes 
  • Business travel
  • Charitable donations

Taking these deductions can save on your tax bill, but you must have proper documentation because the IRS scrutinizes deductions closely – any red flags may trigger an audit.

Payroll Data

Your accountant will need your payroll data from the year, including employees’ W-2s, W-3s, and 1099-MISCs, health insurance records (as these can count as a business deduction), and any information regarding bonuses.

Inventory Total

Several tax forms require a Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) closing balance for the year, so you must provide an opening and an ending balance of your total inventory. 

By working with Cody Ravalli, you will have confidence in knowing your business tax return is in good hands. 

Individual Tax Services

Preparing your income tax return can be frustrating and particularly complicated if you acquire property, are self-employed, or your financial status changes. Working with a professional CPA like Cody Ravalli will ensure that your tax return is prepared quickly and accurately. Cody’s comprehensive individual tax services include:

  • Personal and joint filing
  • LLC tax filing
  • Trust, estate, and gift tax filing
  • Individual tax audits

Trust Cody Ravalli to help you take advantage of money-saving deductions or credits and get the best possible tax return. 

Nonprofit Tax Preparation

  • Preparation of Forms 990, 990PF, or 990T
  • Special tax filings
