The end of the year is quickly approaching. In order for your accountant to best serve you, there are a few end of year to-do items that need to be completed and submitted. Keep in mind that the holidays tend to be hectic for everyone, so submitting these items as soon as possible will keep things running smoothly and help you kick off the new year well ahead of schedule.
It’s time to pull together your expense reimbursements and tax adjustments to prepare for the end of the year.
End of Year Accounting Items
It is time to pull together all of your receipts and pertinent information related to reimbursements. Expenses you can submit for reimbursement include:
- Health Insurance
- Deductibles, copays, prescriptions, etc for any medical expenses for any family member that is a dependent or spouse. This includes vision and dental expenses.
- CME – the conferences themselves are deductible. You can also deduct the airfare and hotel if it was located somewhere else. Meals are deductible up to 50% but only for you.
- Meetings are deductible. If it was a dinner meeting, the meal is only 50% deductible.
- Office supplies such as computer, printer, paper.
- Cell phone and pager.
- Email service – such as roadrunner.
- Subscriptions and Journals
In addition, if you had any income changes that occurred during the year – including gains, losses, or additional spousal income – that could impact your taxes, it’s best that you tell your accountant as early as possible. If they get this information in a timely manner your withholdings can be adjusted on your end-of-year checks to account for these changes.
If you have a new accountant this year, make sure to provide them with your tax returns from the previous year as well.
End of Year Accounting Considerations
It can never be restated emphatically enough how important retirement plans are. If you haven’t funded the maximum amount into your retirement plan this month there is still time to max out your yearly contribution.
