Hire a tax professional
Whether you need a tax expert's assistance to finally file your extended 2015 return or you're looking for help in getting your 2016 tax act together, now is the time to hire someone.
The filing season crunch is over, meaning that all types of tax professionals have a bit more time. They are much more likely to take on new clients now than early next year.
It also gives you time to determine exactly which type of tax preparer fits your tax needs. And you'll be able to thoroughly check out the tax professional before you turn over your tax life to him or her.
