For a lot of businesses in the Black Hills, western South Dakota and western North Dakota, summer is the busy time. We’re running our visitor attractions, tending to our calf crop and gearing up for the 2015 Sturgis Rally. For our staff of more than 100 Ketel Thorstenson accountants, the busiest time runs from the beginning of the year through mid-April.

Somewhere in between, there’s a good time for both client and accountant to start preparing for the next tax season.

Although many of the tax forms aren’t available, most of our clients have year-around accounting needs, and we would love to help you get a head start as much as possible on your taxes.

That’s especially important as we get closer to the tax season. When there are delays in receiving 1099s and Form K-1s from investment companies and partnerships, the tax season tends to compress. Corporate tax returns are due March 15, agricultural returns are due March 1 and individual and partnership returns are due April 15.

“You can help us get through tax seasons more efficiently by letting us prepare your partnership and corporate tax returns in January and February, if possible,” said Denise Webster, managing partner of Ketel Thorstenson, LLP.

Meanwhile, you might have other needs like bookkeeping issues? Buying or selling a business? Establishing the value of your business? We have business valuation specialists, QuickBooks experts and professional accountants who have the expertise and the time to help you — especially between now and the end of the year.
