Let’s face it – you can’t possibly know all areas of tax filing by yourself, especially if it’s complicated. Hence, it’s probably a good idea to leave the tax filing to a personal tax preparation service and let the professionals handle your taxes. With so many tax preparers out there claiming to be the best in the business, how do you identify the fraudsters’ experts? Here are a few bullet-proof tips on finding the best personal tax filing agent.
If your friends, family members or colleagues have hired a tax preparer or know of a good one, you can always check them out. You can also check with your area’s CPA society or search online to find a tax preparer who can help you.
When you have a few tax preparers in mind, you must interview each of them for at least 15 minutes to know their true potential and credibility. If they hesitate to give an interview or ask for a charge for the session, it’s a red flag and you should look the other way.
Ask the relevant questions.
During the interview, you must aim to gain information about the tax preparer and its services. Ask about their education, qualifications, certifications, experiences, specializations, the charges, whether they will represent you before the IRS and so on.
Be open about your situation.
Just as you need your tax preparer to be open and upfront about their services, you must also do the same to help them serve you the best possible way. Let your tax preparer know about everything, major or minor that can affect your taxes.
