Don’t wait until April 14th in order to find a professional tax preparer. If you feel you need one – and you don’t have a CPA in your team of business advisers – you should start looking for a tax professional today.
Not all tax preparers are the same.
Some tax preparation businesses will hire temp help during the busy season, while others will advertise with a simple sign nailed to a light pole.
There’s a big difference in filing simple tax returns for an individual than it is for filing local, county, state and federal tax returns for a business.
Your tax preparer should be extremely knowledgeable in tax law and should be asking you a lot of questions about your business and tax situation in order to understand your situation and goals.
In addition, a professional tax preparer would sign their name and contact information on your return should the Internal Revenue Service have any questions at a later time. Will your tax preparer help you with questions from the IRS?
Ask questions and make sure you’re hiring the best tax preparer for your business!
