"I represent the third generation of a family owned medium sized, multi location manufacturing business that has done business with Westerheide and Associates since the late 1970's. As long as I have known him, and as I'm sure my father and grandfather could attest, Jack (and his team) have consistently provided exceptional Accounting services year after year. Uncompromising attention to detail along with prompt and reliable service are characteristics of Westerheide and Associates that have earned them our trust through the years. He has handled everything from our Tax Returns to financial audits and business valuations. We have enjoyed our partnership with this firm over the years, and as Jack continues to groom his children to continue the same legacy he began, we hope to continue the partnership well into the future."

[11/14/15]   As a result of the Affordable Care Act, your tax preparer will need an additional piece of information in order to prepare your 2015 tax return. They will need from their client one of the following three forms depending on where you get your insurance coverage:

1095A-Issued by the marketplace
1095B-Issued by your insurance carrier
1095C-issued by your employer with more than 100 full time insured employees

Watch for these forms in the mail, they should arrive at the latest by the end of January, although some of the forms may be issued as early as December.

[10/22/15]   Here is an update on bonus depreciation for the 2015 tax year. Under Section 179, you may expense up to $25,000 of the total cost of new and used qualified assets purchased and placed in service in 2015. Section 168k, also referred to as "Bonus Depreciation", allows taxpayers to expense 50% of new equipment in a particular class of assets purchased and placed in service in 2015. The bonus depreciation allowance expires at the end of 2015, however, we expect Congress to extend Section 168k before the end of the year. This is most important for Small Business and hopefully Congress will extend the provision as they did at the end of 2014.

[02/10/15]   With the Affordable Care Act in full swing, there are some things that have to be reported on the 1040. The easiest thing is to check on page two whether or not you have had insurance for the whole year of 2014. After that, if you didn't purchase health care from the marketplace exchange, you are finished. If you did purchase health insurance from the exchange, the reporting requirements are quite challenging, with several new forms to complete, Form 8962, 8965.

[12/23/14]   Update to a post made on October 20th:
Section 168 (50 percent) Bonus Depreciation, although originally set to expire at the beginning of 2014, has just recently been extended through the year 2014.

[12/16/14]   Happy Holidays! Just a friendly reminder to our current clients: we will be sending out our tax organizers on or around December 26. If you are not a current client, but are interested in having your taxes prepared by a CPA firm, please feel free to call us at 314-843-6555 and we can get started on creating a tax organizer for you as well!

[12/04/14]   UPDATE: They say the only two certainties in life are death and taxes. However, they should alter that expression to include ever-changing tax laws and provisions as well. After a busy evening yesterday, the U.S. House decided to change and extend some tax laws and regulations; two of which were discussed in yesterday's post.

First, the educator expense deduction has now been extended through 2014. So teachers can now once again claim a $250 deduction for qualifying expenses for the classroom. Also, the section 179 deduction will no longer be reduced for 2014 to keep the threshold at the level of years prior. Instead of decreasing the maximum deduction to $25,000, it will now still remain a $500,000 maximum deduction.

[12/03/14]   New year, new tax laws! As is the case for just about every year, there are new or modified tax laws that will come into effect for this coming tax year. While there are no drastic changes or modifications for tax year 2014, there are three changes that everyone should be aware of:

1. The educator expense deduction for qualifying teachers and their expenses has expired,
2. The non-business energy property credit for energy efficient items added to your main home (such as energy efficient windows, doors, roofs and insulation) has expired, and
3. The section 179 deduction (deduction of the full purchase price for qualifying equipment and/or software purchased by businesses) has been reduced to $25,000 for 2014. Out of these three changes, this one probably has the largest impact, as it is a significant decrease from last year.

50% Bonus Depreciation (Section 168) expired at the beginning of this year unless Congress makes retroactive changes before the end of the year. 100% (Section 179) is still in effect although somewhat limited.

[08/16/12]   The "Bush tax cuts" will expire at the end of 2012 unless Congress intervenes. Here is what this might mean for you in 2013:

- The top two tax brackets will have their tax rates increase to 36% and 39.6% (up from 33% and 35%,)
- The maximum rate on long-term capital gains will increase to 20% (up from 15%)
- Dividends for taxpayers in the top two brackets will be taxed at ordinary income rates (instead of the 15% max rate)

Two more measures that might be repealed, but for now will go into effect in 2013:
- high income individuals may be hit with an additional 0.9% Medicare tax on part of their wages and self-employment income.
- high-income individuals may be hit with a separate 3.8% Medicare tax on their investment income (which includes long-term gains and dividends)

[04/10/12]   Don't forget, taxes are due on Tuesday, April 17th this year! If you still need to file a last minute return or 6-month extension, give us a call at 314.843.6555

[12/02/11]   Starting in 2012, it will be mandatory for employers to report the health insurance premiums that they paid for their employees on the employees' W-2's. While it is optional for the 2011 W-2's, it would be smart to get a head start on the requirement for next year by implementing the practice this year.
