FIND A TAX PROFESSIONAL
I just created a new website titled FIND A TAX PROFESSIONAL!
The purpose of the site is to help a taxpayer find the right tax preparer for his or her individual situation.
Actually now is a good time to begin looking for a professional to prepare your 2014 tax returns. You should not wait until next January or February. Preparers have more time now to spend talking to you.
This new website has links to several searchable databases of professional tax preparers, and a collection of invaluable articles, by me, to help with your search.
These articles include:
ALPHABET SOUP - What do all the initials mean?
DON'T ASSUME - A CPA is not automatically a 1040 tax expert, and Henry and Richard Ain't Cheap!
CHOOSING A TAX PROFESSIONAL - What to avoid.
WHAT TO ASK A PREPARER - Questions to ask a potential tax preparer.
THE COST OF TAX PREPARATION - How much will a tax preparer charge?
WHAT TO GIVE YOUR TAX PROFESSIONAL - Make sure you provide your tax pro with everything he/she needs to properly prepare your return.
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE! - Regardless of who prepares your return you are responsible for everything on it.
It also has links to books and publications and online resources to help with tax planning and preparation.
Check out FIND A TAX PROFESSIONAL and let me know what you think.
