I'm thinking of saving a little money by going just out of town to a smaller town and let them do my tax return in my first year (Sep 94-Dec 94 only). The lady didn't mention up front consult but to bring stuff in organized and typed up and receipts organized as well. They only charge $125 if you do this. Another guy quoted me at $250 with free consult up front to go over what I need to bring in I guess. I think I'm gonna save a little and have 1 question about maintenance costs to my Jeep. If you declare you business official say in Sep 04, can you report maintenenace you had done on the Jeep earlier in 04 like March 04 and July 04? Curious since I had a fuel pump replaced and brake work also making total fairly high. These are type questions I probably would ask cpa offering free consult up front but since I may not use him, wondered if anyone could tell me that anyway. I'm just going to list everything I can or have questions about for the cheaper tax company and assume they will write all legal deductions in for me. Thanks.
