Maintaining Your
Piece of the Pie
The Tax Return - Your Annual Financial Checkup
.FW .Boutin EA - Total Tax Solutions LLC
I am happy to participate in The Area News Group’s “Maintaining Your
Piece of the Pie” series once again this tax season. Over the next several
weeks, I will be presenting a series of articles that will cover various
aspects of the income tax return. Knowledge and understanding is a very
powerful weapon. These articles dissect the income tax return, define

lower your taxable income. My purpose is to help make you aware of
the multiple options you have to enact informed decisions regarding

your financial future and upcoming expenditures in these challenging
At Total Tax Solutions we view the preparation of an income tax return
as a time for an annual financial checkup. The tax laws can be compli-
cated and confusing to many individuals. Each taxpayer’s situation is
unique on different tax bracket levels and change from year to year. The
income tax return itself is very complex since a minor change in one
area of the return can affect several other areas of the return. Certain
transactions that may occur during the year can cost you much more
than you anticipated. This is because of the affect an increase in total
income can have on certain deductions and credits that have phase out
Of course I recommend that you have your taxes professionally
prepared so that you can: 1) ask questions pertaining to your return: 2)
understand your options to lower your taxes for the next year and 3)
have someone who you can call if a particular situation should arise
during the year. ith yW our previous year’s transactions in our computers
we can give realistic advice instead of assumptions. Many of our clients
take advantage of this service which is included in their one time fee.
I realize that not all returns are so complicated as to require profes-
sional preparation. Self preparers however should consider having their
