Additionally, Wisconsin Early Education Shared Services (WEESSN), a program of Wisconsin Early Childhood Association (WECA), partnered with Civitas Strategies to create a revolutionary new set of free tax resources specifically for child care businesses. This package, listed below, includes tax guides to empower providers to take advantage of efficient, cost-effective online methods of tax preparation and complete their own tax submissions. Additionally, an online app runs through key business questions and provides a printout of information so that family child care providers that use a tax preparer can ensure the tax preparer has all the correct info they need so that the filing is done correctly. Lastly, an additional app focused on the Employee Retention Tax Credit runs through a series of questions to help child care providers assess whether they are eligible for the tax credit and how to go about applying for it.
The IRS believes online tax programs are more accurate, so electronically prepared returns are audited at a lower rate. Additionally, tax preparers who use online tax preparation software often have more accurate, positive outcomes.
