Guide to Taxes: Finding the Right Professional

Guide to Finding the Right Tax Professional

There are many ways in which a tax return can get audited, here we will talk about some of the senarios where your actual tax preparer is creating an audit for you.

How Your Preparer Is Reporting Your Return

If for example, a preparer changes your expense item for one place on the return to a different place, the IRS will find this and send out an audit for your return.

You Know More Than Your Tax Preparer

If you feel as if you know more than your preparer and are always educating them, you may need to find someone else. Tax season is very busy for tax professionals and it is important that you find someone that will take the time to pay attention to your needs and not assume they know everything.

Relying On Outdated Information

The internet is a major information pool of everything but not all of it is current and worth using. Alot of the law rules and laws that you read online are outdated and not usable. Since tax is always changing, its important to find a professional that is always up to date with their laws and regulations.

Avoid The One Man Show

If you tax professional is attempting to do everything under the sun involving tax and accounting work, it may be best to skip him and find someone that specializes in just what you need. Often these people are sub par at alot of things but not the best at anything.
