20/20 Money Episode #293 – Easy and conspicuous ways to avoid tax mistakes and penalties, how proactive conversations can smooth out your annual tax payment plan, and the intersection of tax and estate planning with Amber Morgan, CPA

June 17, 2024

Welcome to this episode of 20/20 Money! My guest on today’s show is Amber Morgan, CPA with Mohr CPAs. In the wake of tax season, Amber and I run through some of the easy and conspicuous action items that you can take proactively over the year that not only will have a positive impact on your overall tax planning, but also make for a happy and productive CPA-client advisor relationship. 

One additional PSA that Amber thought of post-recording as it pertains to extensions: filing an extension is not a bad thing. You’d rather file an extension and make sure that your CPA is working on your taxes with a fresh set of eyes (and morale) rather than stressing and hurrying to get your return filed at 11pm on April 14th. Nothing bad happens when you file an extension (as long as you’ve paid the amount owed, as Amber explains in further detail in the episode). But mistakes can happen if a return is rushed out the door if for no other reason than to get it filed prior to April 15th. If you do file an extension, just don’t sit on it until the fall when you’re right back up against the actual deadline.
