How US CPAs can Prepare for the 2021 Tax Season
Dec 01, 2020
Yes, you read that right – tax season is around the corner yet again.
The 2020 tax season was one for the record books, with changing deadlines (7/15), rules (ex: CARES Act), and more brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. 2021 will have its own complexities and challenges.
It’s always the busiest time of year for CPAs, and perhaps even more so during these unprecedented times. But fear not — we’re here to help you complete those challenging forms such as 8938, FinCEN 114, Dual-Status Federal tax returns, Part-Year state tax returns, 3520, 3520A, 8621, 2555, 1116 etc. during this upcoming 2021 tax season.
The importance of accounting has remained true throughout the pandemic crisis as more and more businesses are seeking outside consultations regarding PPP management and overall fiscal health.
We are seeing a huge number of US Accountancy practices adapting to the post-pandemic landscape by outsourcing many different functions such as Annual Reporting, Extended Tax Returns Preparation, Sales & Use Tax etc. Outsourcing brings with it the flexibility, agility and access to a superior skill set that is available 24*7 even during challenging times.
