Tax Professionals

Whether you do your taxes yourself, or if you get professional help, you are ultimately responsible for any mistakes or tax liabilities if you get audited. There are several ways you can file but it is imperative that you use the best resources to meet your own personal needs.

If you'll be getting help with your taxes this year, you probably want to make sure its the best help around. You will want to hire the services of an experienced accountant or other income tax professionals who study and know state and federal tax codes.

There are many companies that offer income tax preparation help. Most income tax preparation companies are local businesses that provide tax services throughout the year. Others, like H & R Block, Jackson Hewitt, and Liberty, are nationally known and have offices throughout the United States.

The key is not just getting your taxes prepared and filed, it is getting them done right so you won't get audited. What you put on your tax returns can come back to haunt you in the future so you should not trust your taxes with someone who is inexperienced.

There are unscrupulous people out there who will try to take advantage of you during income tax preparation season. They know that there is a lot of money to be made preparing tax returns and they advertise themselves as income tax preparation specialists, but in reality, they don't know tax laws and codes. Once they give you your tax returns and you send them in, they disappear and leave you to fend for yourself if you get audited by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

If you don't know anyone who does tax returns, the best way to find a tax preparer is by word of mouth. You can ask family members, friends, associates, or co-workers who they use. Most people go to the same person or company year after year and they grow to trust them.

If you feel that you want to find someone on your own, stop by a local accountants office or one of the well known tax preparation franchises such as Hewitt Jackson or H & R Block.

The advantage of using a professional tax preparation company or accountant is that if you get audited, in most cases, they will help you get through it. The disadvantage is that they may charge more for preparing your income tax returns.
