Tax Extension Deadline is Approaching

If you requested an extension to file your personal income taxes back in April, it's time to put it back at the top of your To-Do List.  

It's important to remember that an extension of time to file is NOT an extension of time to pay, so if you owe taxes, the longer you wait, the more additional interest you'll end up owing. 

The final filing deadline is October 15th or you'll also get hit with late filing penalties, so don't put it off any longer!  

We welcome new and existing clients to contact us with any questions you have!  We're here to help.

Audit Season

Have you recently been selected for a State Fund audit on your workers compensation policy?  State Fund conducts mandatory premium audits on all new policies after the first year of coverage.  After that, they randomly select roughly 25% of policies each year for an audit.  

If you have questions on a premium audit, we're happy to assist, even if we don't process your payroll regularly.  We can review your records ahead of time so there's no surprises and then handle the audit from our office so that you don't have to deal with the stress. So don't panic when you get correspondence in the mail with that dirty little word and don't hesitate to ask us for help. 

Here's some information from Montana State Fund related to premium audits:
