3 Things To Know When Choosing A Tax Preparer

Spring is quickly approaching, which means we’ll soon welcome warm weather, blooming plants, and picnics with the people we love. Of course, spring also means that it’s time to finish up your tax preparation. With April quickly approaching, it’s time to find a tax preparer who will be able to help you file your business taxes. As an entrepreneur, your time is valuable and often limited, and you want to find a professional who can help you with all of your tax needs.

You Should Check Their Qualifications

Before you trust a stranger with your finances, check their qualifications. The IRS provides a useful tool to search in a nationwide database of registered tax professionals. Also, it is important to ask if they’re members of any tax preparer organizations.

You Should Ask About Their Experience

How long have they been a tax preparer, and what have they learned in the process? Have they worked with a business similar in size to yours? The only way you’ll know the answers to these questions is if you ask them, and you want to make sure you pick someone with adequate experience.

You Should Ask Questions

You don’t have to be best friends with your tax preparer, but you should feel comfortable asking questions. When you first speak with a tax preparer, ask questions about their filing methods, their overall work ethic and anything else you’re curious about. You’re putting a lot of trust in their skill set, so don’t be afraid to ask all the questions you have.
