How Do I Find a Tax Accountant for My Small Business?
Why Is a Tax Accountant Important?
It is important to understand the importance of a tax accountant. A tax accountant saves the precious time that you can be spending on growing your business instead of worrying about taxes. Along with that, they help you avoid costly mistakes.
Moreover, a tax accountant can quickly spot any errors and handle them without costly delay.
Do Internet Research
To avoid hiring a CPA that does more harm than good and to prevent any tax accounting scams, it’s vital to do your own research on who you may potentially hire.
Today, anyone can prepare your taxes because there are very few regulations around paid tax preparers. At the end of the day, finding a certified CPA is the first step to take. Another great place to vet a potential tax accountant is by reading online reviews.
Ask For Important Documents
According to the IRS, anyone dealing with tax accounting should have a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN), so before you hire someone, ensure they have this information ready.
What's even more important is that you hire a credentialed preparer – someone who is also a CPA. If they’re not a CPA, the person should either be a licensed attorney, enrolled agent (EA), or someone who has completed the IRS's Annual Filing Season program.
Find Someone Experienced With The IRS
