Identifying Back Taxes Owed

The first step in determining if you owe back taxes is to review your past tax returns. This can be a tedious process, but it is crucial to identify any discrepancies or missed payments. Our team at DiLucci CPA Firm has extensive experience in reviewing tax returns and can help you navigate through your past returns to ensure that everything is in order. 


Reviewing Your Past Tax Returns

Reviewing past tax returns is crucial in identifying any outstanding tax liabilities. It requires a careful and detailed analysis of the tax returns filed in previous years to ensure that all income was accurately reported and the correct amount of tax was paid. When reviewing your past tax returns, it is essential to consider the following key factors:

  1. Accuracy of Income Reporting: Ensure that all sources of income, including employment income, business income, rental income, and any other sources, were correctly reported on your tax returns. Discrepancies in income reporting can lead to unpaid taxes.
  2. Claimed Deductions and Credits: Review the deductions and credits claimed on your tax returns. It is essential to verify that you were eligible for the deductions and credits claimed and that they were calculated correctly.
  3. Filing Status: Confirm that you chose the correct filing status for your situation. The filing status affects the tax rate and the standard deduction you are eligible for.
  4. Timely Filing and Payment: Check that you filed your tax returns on time and paid any tax owed by the due date. Late filing and payment can result in penalties and interest charges.

Our team will carefully analyze each return to identify any errors or omissions that may have resulted in unpaid taxes. We will also ensure you take advantage of all eligible deductions and credits to minimize your tax liability. We understand that reviewing past tax returns can be a complex and time-consuming process, but it is a necessary step in resolving any back tax issues. Our goal is to provide you with peace of mind, knowing that your tax returns have been thoroughly reviewed and any outstanding tax liabilities have been identified and addressed.
