Choosing a Tax Preparer

It’s that time of the year again… Tax time!

Some of you have already taken care of this, but if you haven’t, Forbes has compiled a list of “11 Questions To Ask When Hiring A Tax Preparer.” It includes:

  • do you have a preparer tax id number?
  • what is your tax background?
  • who will sign my return?

There’s also questions on whether they have experience with your particular situation (assuming you’re a freelancer, own rental property, etc.) and when you can expect to receive the documents.

A biggie: what do you do if there’s a problem with your return? i.e, who do you call and what do they do to support you in that situation?

Have others to suggest?
