The 2013 Tax Season is here!
If we are filing your taxes for 2013, make sure you get a copy of our Tax Organizer. There is a PDF version available here or through our Abacus CPAs Website. You may also request a paper copy of the Tax Organizer to be mailed to you or picked up at our Springfield office by contacting us at 417-380-5000 or stopping by in person.

If you have any problems filling out the tax organizer, feel free to stop by our office and a staff member will assist you in completing the organizer OR you may call us and we will provide assistance with answering the questions.

Unable to file your taxes by the deadline?

Abacus CPAs requires that we have all of your tax information by March 21st to be able to file your return by the April 15th tax deadline. If you are unable to get us all of your information by this time, we can file an extension for you.


This will give you an extension on filing your tax return to avoid the late filing penalty. After filing an extension, you will have until October 15th, 2014 to file your return. 


It will NOT give you an extension on paying your taxes. Interest will start to accrue after the April deadline and will continue until your balance is paid in full. If you did not pay your estimates during 2013, be sure and send in a tax payment before the April 15th deadline. If you would like an approximate amount to send in, we can help you with calculating that amount.

Identity Theft Information
With the start of a new year comes the time for all individuals to file tax returns for the previous year.  This process includes communicating personally identifiable, sensitive data with your tax preparer in order to file returns with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). 
Abacus CPAs would like to remind you of the ever increasing threat of identity theft, as thieves are constantly looking for new ways to steal information and use it to their advantage.
First and foremost, please remember the following:
The IRS does not:

-Initiate contact with taxpayers by email to request personal or financial information. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as text messages and social media channels.


-Request detailed personal information through email.


-Send any communication requesting your PIN numbers, passwords or similar access information for credit cards, banks or other financial accounts.

If you have become a victim of identity theft, or suspect that your personally identifiable information has been jeopardized, please contact us immediately.

As always, Abacus CPAs is here to help you with any questions regarding tax matters, the safety or your identity, or the authenticity of any IRS communications.
