Professional HOA Tax Return Services
Dealing with homeowners association tax returns can be overwhelming. It requires someone well-versed in tax matters and the unique HOA taxation specifications. Regrettably, most HOAs do not have the experts to address the association’s tax obligations. Here’s where our HOA tax return services come in. Our objective is to make your HOA taxation process as easy as possible. We provide astute HOA tax preparation services to ensure your association complies with legal and regulatory requirements.
Our HOA tax preparation is systematic for improved accuracy and prompt filing. Firstly, we will review all your financial reports. We will gather all relevant records and check them for accuracy and completeness. The next step is determining what tax forms to fill out to ensure your association qualifies for tax savings. From there, we calculate your association’s estimated tax dues and decide whether to file them electronically or manually.
HOAs and condo associations do not have similar tax obligations. The only similarity is that they must all file tax returns. While HOAs can file Form 1120 or Form 1120-H, most condo associations are only eligible for Form 1120. They fall under section 277 of the IRS Code and must file Form 1120 as a corporation. We can help your association determine its exempt status and whether it qualifies for tax benefits.
Condo associations also collect fees and other monies from the community. Capital expenditures and revenue from membership fees are taxable. Qualifying expenses, such as maintenance and operational costs, are tax deductible. Our experts at Abel Accountants can help your association reduce tax liabilities and maximize tax benefits through our expert condo association tax return services.

HOA tax return preparation entails reviewing the association’s financial reports for accuracy, knowing what tax forms to file, and determining tax schedules to avoid late filing and penalties. The association should enlist a tax expert to calculate the estimated taxes due and decide whether to file the returns electronically or manually.
Condo associations have a specific tax classification. They fall under section 277 of the IRS Code and must file Form 1120 as a corporation. Capital expenditures and revenue from membership fees are taxable. Qualifying expenses, such as maintenance and operational costs, are tax deductible.
The most effective way condo associations can maximize tax benefits and reduce liabilities is to keep accurate financial reports and statements. Errors and discrepancies in your association’s financial reporting can lead to heavy penalties. Filing tax returns promptly can also prevent unnecessary fines.
Homeowners and condo associations should maintain various documents for tax preparation. These include income and expense statements, general ledgers, cash receipts or receivables, balance sheets, bank statements, and detailed reserve fund reports.
