You could do your own taxes. You could also build your own house. In both cases, people occasionally are very happy that they did. For most of us, however, the best thing to do is work with a professional and make sure the job is done. Putting your tax situation in the hands of a qualified tax professional or tax adviser ensures that you’re compliant with all IRS code in addition to State and Federal laws. Having the right adviser at your back can mean the difference between optimized deductions on one hand or an audit on the other.
Even for a professional tax preparer (which most people are not), preparing taxes is time consuming. It’s a well-known aphorism that time is money, but time is also peace of mind. Next, preparing taxes is confusing. This confusion often stems from a constantly changing tax code and the relationship it plays to your financial situation. The fact that the IRS is not generally compromised of communications majors doesn’t make things any easier as far as understanding what is actually required of you. There’s a natural cost-benefit analysis when looking at the risk involved in how much you might have to pay if you do it incorrectly.
There are a few important questions you’ll want to ask yourself when finding the right firm to prepare your taxes:
1. How do they ensure the returns are accurate?
2. Do they offer customized tax advice for my situation—or do they just file paperwork?
3. What kind of specialized knowledge can they offer me for complex tax situations (such as those that may require a payment plan)?
4. What kind of auditing services, if any, do they provide?
