HOW TO LOOK FOR A TAX PROFESSIONAL

Have you ever tried to look for a new Tax Professional? When anyone tells you that they know a tax preparer and that person always does a good job with their taxes is usually the best way to find someone to do your tax return. But, sometimes you move somewhere new and you might not know anyone who uses an accountant or tax preparer having the need to look for other sources.

If you don’t really want to ask for recommendations from your close circle, then try asking co-workers, any acquaintances from local clubs or organizations you belong to, your neighbors, and so on. Additionally, use social media to the best of your advantage. Remember, social media helps you connect! You could ask on your Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn or other social media friends and perhaps find a trusted name from a friend of a friend.

You may also try looking for a professional at Yelp’s local directory listings or Angie’s List which include accountants near you with positive reviews.

Additionally, you may also look for tax preparers or accounts at the following sites: Membership in a professional organization such as the National Association of Tax Professionals, the National Association of Enrolled Agents, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, or the American Academy of Attorney CPAs. These sites assure you that the tax preparer or account meets codes of ethics, professional conduct requirements, and various certification programs.
