Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Most customers may be surprised by what they can get for a fair tax preparation fee. Why have a rookie Licensed Tax Preparer prepare your taxes when you can have your fully reviewed tax return prepared by a CPA or veteran tax professional for a comparable price?

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. You should never have to pay extra for such services as e-File and direct deposit. Unbeknownst to most consumers, these services actually make tax preparation easier for accountants and chain tax services. In fact, e-file is currently compulsory for those who prepare more than 10 tax returns in any tax year. So, check your invoice to make sure that the fees are reasonable and fair.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. Ask the professional how many years they have been in the accounting field, and how long they have performed the specific service you are seeking.

Ask whether their work is reviewed by a peer, and if so, how many years their reviewer has provided accounting services.
