Tips for Property Managers Preparing for Tax Season

Can you believe that tax season is already approaching? That’s right, the season officially starts at the end of January. With so many moving parts, it truly is never too soon to start getting organized and ready for the occasion.

Verify Information for 1099’s

Confirm owner and vendor information

  • Correct Name
  • Tax ID’s
  • Addresses
  • If you are unsure of which vendors you need to send 1099’s to, consult a tax professional

Request missing W9’s

  • Many management teams know it’s best to require a W-9 before making that first payment, but this doesn’t always happen. Connect and confirm this information in advance to wipe out any future stress.

Tax Deductions

Search for those deductions!

  • Ex. Insurance purchased for the PMC should be tax deductible
  • Ex. Vehicle Mileage
  • Ex. Software or Computer Expenses

Track and update all your expenses on maintenance, repairs, and daily business operations. These expenses can add up overtime and save you quite a bit of money in the long run.

Learn Tax Law Changes

Stay knowledgeable year after year! Tax codes on the federal and state level can make a big impact on business. Be proactive on learning these changes, and how it will affect your communities.
