Frequently asked questions:

Yes. Generally, homeowners associations must file an annual federal income tax return and a state income tax return. Our team helps you determine which Internal Revenue Code section is requried and/or most advantageous for your association.
Regardless of the level of service (i.e. tax returns, audit, consultation, etc.), typically, the largest factor impacting the timing of delivery is usually the flow of necessary information. The quicker we get information, the quicker we can delivery your project. Our proprietary app alerts you when a project is on-hold due to missing information.
This answer can be complex; the classic tax-related response applies here: it depends. Most residential associations are not technically "exempt organizations" in the eyes of the IRS and file under Section 528 of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC). This Section allows for filing the simpler Form 1120-H; but, it requires delineation between exempt and non-exempt type income. Some associations, including commercial associations, may not qualify for filing under Section 528 and instead file under Section 277 of the IRC. Our CIRATAS team optimizes the filing for your association.
In accountant-speak, an audit provides reasonable assurance that the financial statements presented are free of material misstatement according to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; whereas, a review provides limited assurance of the same. In practical terms, a review engagement will produce similar looking financial statements, including notes to financial statements, but there is less work required for the accountant to report on these.
