BKD Develops Strategies to Help You Take Advantage of Benefits Within the Tax Law

Changes in tax laws are one of the few constants of American life. Every change adds a new layer of complexity to an already complicated process. At BKD, our tax consultants work full time to keep up with these changes. We develop strategies to help you take advantage of benefits within the tax law and reduce your tax burden.

This forward-looking approach to developing advantageous tax strategies allows you to plan for the future. And because virtually every financial decision can have tax implications, careful tax planning can make a big difference in the final outcome.

Record Retention Guidelines

The retention periods apply to records needed to substantiate your federal income tax return and are based on the federal statute of limitations, which is normally three years. This means the IRS could audit your return up to three years from the due date of the tax return or the date of filing, whichever is later. However, if you substantially underreport income, fail to file a return or file a fraudulent return, the statute of limitations could be much longer.
