Playing the waiting game is no fun—especially when it comes to waiting on money.

If you’re like most people, you want your tax return in your pocket as soon as possible, and the good news is there are few ways to speed up the entire process!

File Your Taxes Online

If you’ve yet to file your taxes online, now is the time to make the switch!

When you file electronically, your information goes into the IRS’ system much faster than it would if filing by hand and mailing your return via snail mail. Not to mention, the e-filing process can check for accuracy—this will undoubtedly speed up the process of getting the money you deserve.

Use Direct Deposit

Last year, nearly 84 million taxpayers filed their taxes online and chose the direct deposit option. Why? Taking advantage of direct deposit couldn’t be easier: with the click of a button, you’re on your way to receiving your money in no time!

When you choose to have your money direct deposited, your refund goes straight into your checking account—no waiting for the IRS to process your return and send your check. Once you click submit, you’re likely to see your return posted in your checking account in as little as five business days!

Have a Professional Prepare your Return

If you’re like most taxpayers, the thought of doing your own taxes can be extremely confusing and overwhelming. But you don’t have to go at it alone! Hiring a professional tax preparer is an easy and economical way to get your taxes done without hassle, errors or too much time and effort on your part.

It’s simple: gather your receipts and paperwork, organize incoming tax documents (your W-2) and pass on to a Beaton Accounting tax professional.
