Read This Before You File Your Next Tax Return
It’s never too early to start preparing for tax season and Schulz Stephenson Law Firm wants you to be aware of some possible deductions you may be eligible for if you’ve pursued certain legal action within the 2015 tax year. The Internal Revenue Service allows a deduction, within limits, for reasonable and necessary expenses incurred in the production of taxable income.
You may be entitled to a deduction of some attorney’s fees paid to our firm for the pursuit of any of the following:
• Post-separation support
• Military pension division
• Qualified domestic relations orders
• Survivor benefit plans
Consult your lawyer at Schulz Stephenson for professional assistance in obtaining the necessary documents to qualify for this type of deduction. You can request copies of monthly statements from our office as proof of fees paid in pursuit of alimony or pension division.
In addition, as divorced or separated individuals, you may be eligible for more returns than you know. Call our office for guidance in obtaining all the statements you need to get the tax return you deserve. Check with your tax advisor or tax preparation professional for assistance in determining your entitlement to any deduction for reasonable and necessary expenses incurred in the production of taxable income.
