)-- Dustin Whittenburg can help you with the tax implications associated with personal and business changes. He is capable of assisting you whether you are buying or selling a business, determining how to report certain information on your tax return, or are in a dispute with a taxing authority.
1. Decide whether or not you will hire a pro.
If you are going to use a professional, make your appointment early. If you are going to do your taxes yourself, decide whether you are going to use tax software. Tax software can help you find some deductions to which you are entitled and helps you avoid common mistakes.
2. Make sure that your tax return numbers match the 1099s you receive from your broker, employer, or Investment Company.
3. Don't file as "Single" if you qualify to file as "Head of Household". You will get a bigger refund if you file as Head of Household.
4. If you itemize your deductions, you can reduce your taxable income by claiming your donations to qualified charitable organizations. These groups are often referred to as 501(c)(3) organizations.

Complicated tax issues arise from different activities of daily life. Whether starting a business venture, dealing with a major life event, or developing an estate plan, our personal and business activities have serious tax consequences. Mr. Whittenburg can carefully consider the tax consequences of proposed transactions and often devise creative alternatives for a more advantageous tax position.
Whether a taxpayer is a corporation, partnership or individual filing a tax return containing errors can lead to monetary penalties or even criminal prosecution. Before filing a return containing difficult issues, such as those involved in property transactions, international transactions or the division of partnership tax items, taxpayers should seek guidance as to the proper filing position. Mr. Whittenburg can properly research the issues and efficiently determine the correct return treatment.
Whether it is a federal or state taxing authority there are many ways to settle a dispute. Detailed knowledge of tax procedure and calm, competent negotiation skills are required to adequately deal with the Internal Revenue Service or Texas Comptroller of Accounts during audit, administrative appeal, and litigation. Mr. Whittenburg can help decide the best avenues for a successful resolution of a tax controversy.
