Managing taxes of a small business has got to be the most tiring task, but beyond it lies the glory. Once you have taken care of the finances, everything else tends to fall into place as it removes the obligation from your mind.

Accounting and tax service providers partner with you in gaining success by guiding you out of the financial crisis. They offer bookkeeping, consulting, outsourcing and payroll services.

To help you avoid some basic errors that could prove to be costly, AAP Accounting, Tax and Payroll Services has put together a list of the most common mistakes people make on their tax returns.

1. Not keeping track of business transactions
This is one of the most common mistakes, and it creates major chaos when filing the taxes because there is no other way to find a track of transactions.

2. Organization of business transactions
People sometimes keep records of their transactions but do not organize them properly, confusing their accountants and tax service providers. This often leads to delays in filing taxes, eventually.

3. Not keeping CPA in the loop
When contemplating a business decision, it is best to keep CPA in the loop so they are prepared in advance and can guide you properly through the proceedings.

4. Not separating business and personal transactions
To keep the process running smoothly, separating the business and personal transactions is essential as it can lead to confusion and chaos later.

5. Not making estimated tax payments
Any professional would suggest you make estimated tax payments timely, as not doing that can often have repercussions.
