When you prepare your tax returns you have to be sure that you follow the correct guidelines and furnish the right documents so that your case is not rejected as incorrectly or inadequately prepared and losing on prospective opportunities to get good refunds.
The rules and regulations also keep changing. You have to be aware of these rules to avoid wasting your time and money. For e.g. a married couple could file a joint return and submit a single form. However as per the new IRS policy which will be effective from March 1st 2012 married couples have to submit individual forms.
