Tax review covers all forms included in the individual tax return Form 1040 for one year. Forms 2555 and 1116 are also subject to the review process.

This service does not cover financial reporting (Form 1040NR is not included) and non-personal returns (business, trust, partnership, etc.).

What happens if you don't file taxes correctly?

What happens if you don't file taxes correctly?

The first thing you should realize is that the government sees the IRS as a profit center - they are there to extract the maximum possible amount from every taxpayer. They will use every tool and trick at their disposal to accomplish that goal.

For example - if you miscalculate and pay too much (by not using all available exclusions and deductions) the government will happily keep the money and will never tell you. On the other hand, if you make a procedural mistake and improperly fill out a form (we're not even talking about an actual tax underpayment) the IRS will annul your deductions, add fees/interest on your return, and demand that you pay extra taxes.

Therefore it is equally dangerous to fall on either side of filing a 100% correct tax return.
