Hire a tax preparation and tax planning firm that solves tax problems every day
Preparing your tax return can be a daunting task. Tax laws are complicated enough, even for the simplest of returns. Preparing your own return could leave you very frustrated and confused. It is very easy to overlook deductions and credits you’re entitled to, even the smallest error could lead to real tax troubles. Why not hire an expert?
When hiring Ron Friedman, CPA CTRS, you can be assured that the return will be prepared and reviewed by a licensed professional. Your return will be analyzed by state-of-the-art software specifically designed to identify problem areas of interest to the IRS. Once your return is completed, it is filed electronically providing proof of receipt by the IRS and State.
Comparison of Options
There are plenty options for preparing your tax return.
Option 1: Do it yourself
Free file and off the shelf tax programs are available for use, so if your tax return is simple, you might be able to use this option. However, many of the taxpayers we consult with, come from people who prepared their own tax returns.
Option 2: Hire a chain tax preparation company
These companies rarely employ full time licensed professionals, often times hiring seasonal employees. They train their employees in the weeks leading up to tax season. That means you’re getting tax return advice from someone who, prior to and after tax season, is doing something totally unrelated to tax preparation. Seasonal tax preparers might know more than the average taxpayer, and can prepare basic returns, but they are by no means tax experts.
Option 3: Hire a Certified Public Accountant or Enrolled Agent
These professionals are full time, year-round tax experts. They are held to a higher professional standard, and are required to complete educational classes year-round to keep up to date on the ever changing complicated tax laws. At Ron Friedman, CPA CTRS you are ensured a licensed professional is preparing your return, with over 20 years of experience in tax preparation. We’ve helped our clients file tax returns and plan their taxes through several tax reform acts, so there isn’t anything we haven’t seen.
