The beginning of tax season is always a hectic time for most accounting professionals, but keeping on top of your business during this time doesn’t have to be an uphill battle.
Thankfully, there are things you can do both now and in the off months to ensure that this and future tax seasons go smoothly. With the right tools, you can take a lot of the unnecessary stress out of your busiest times.
1. Keep Your Website Up To Date
Many clients turn to your website as their first resource when tax season arrives. Beyond updating the basics like your contact information, hours, and directions to your office, you need to make sure the rest of your content is current as well.
Since we live in an era of smartphones, you’ll also want to use a website service that offers you convenient mobile templates, so your clients can find you on the go. If you offer tax calculators or other client-friendly tax preparation features, those must be updated to account for any changes in the tax laws.
Likewise, your informational content needs to reflect the current legal landscape. Particularly in light of the recent tax legislation, clients will be expecting to find information that’s up to date and future-focused.
