Services for Retirees
Retirement is an exciting time in one's life, filled with new possibilities and opportunities. However, it also brings about a new set of tax considerations. As a retiree, you may have multiple sources of income, such as pension benefits, social security benefits, and income from investments. Additionally, you may be eligible for various deductions and credits that can help reduce your tax liability. It is important to have a team of experienced tax professionals to help you navigate the complex tax laws and ensure that you receive the maximum refund or pay the minimum amount of taxes owed. That's where Taxstra comes in.
Why Choose Taxstra for Your Individual Tax Preparation Needs?
Expertise in State of Illinois Government Agency Retirement Benefits
Taxstra is located in Springfield, IL, the home of many State of Illinois Government Agencies. Our team has extensive knowledge of the retirement benefits offered by these agencies and can help you take full advantage of them on your tax return. For example, many State of Illinois Government employees receive a pension benefit from the State Employees' Retirement System of Illinois (SERS). The pension benefit is considered taxable income and must be reported on your tax return. However, there are certain deductions and credits that you may be eligible for that can help offset the tax liability on your pension benefit. Our team can help you determine your eligibility for these deductions and credits and ensure that they are claimed on your tax return.
Another retirement benefit that State of Illinois Government employees may receive is health insurance. The State of Illinois offers a health insurance plan for retirees called the State Employee Group Insurance Program (SEGIP). The premium for the health insurance plan is considered a taxable benefit and must be reported on your tax return. However, there is a credit that you may be eligible for that can help offset the tax liability on the premium. Our team can help you determine your eligibility for the credit and ensure that it is claimed on your tax return.
