Talking taxes with Michelle

Tax guidance from a Certified Financial Planner

Michelle Buria provides some helpful tips to kickstart your tax preparation.

Certified Financial Planner Michelle Buria, the Managing Director of Choreo, provides some helpful information as you prepare for taxes.

Michelle notes that she is not a CPA and therefore cannot provide tax advice.

The IRS has hired more people this year so there should be fewer delays than last year in getting responses. This also means more in-person hours at tax assistance centers, increased help for their phone service, and enhanced online chat features.

There’s an update to the ‘Where’s My Refund?’ tool.

Michelle says, “They have some pretty fabulous programs. One is a free file program. There’s a volunteer assistance for certain taxpayers. There’s tax counseling for anyone who is 60…. They have some great programs that maybe people aren’t aware of.”

And of course, the fastest way to get your tax refund is a direct deposit.
