Why Hire a CPA for Tax Returns -

As the beginning of the tax season is upon us, we have become immersed in advertising from the likes of H & R Block, TurboTax, and Jackson Hewitt, informing us that they will do everything in their power to get you your money back at a very low cost.

While these services may be slightly cheaper than your local CPA firm, you may not be getting the best value for the dollars you spend. It is important to realize that there are many additional benefits you receive from a CPA firm these other sources do not offer.

There are at least five distinct advantages in using a CPA to submit your tax return.

  1. While an employee of highly publicized tax preparation companies probably receives only a few days of training on how to use tax software, without training in actual tax law; a CPA is required to take courses specifically related to tax law and theory throughout college. The CPA must demonstrate strong knowledge of areas which could save you money on your taxes now, and in the future.
  2. With the requirement of 80 hours of continuing education every two years, you can be assured that a good, licensed CPA stays on top of changing tax laws. Constant recent changes within our federal regulatory system demand that the tax preparer understand the quality of the contents in the tax return produced by the computer.
  3. Proactive tax planning allows clients to make smart financial decisions during the year in order to minimize the amount they are legally required to pay the IRS.
  4. While many tax preparation services are only open during the tax season from January to April, CPA firms are open year round to assist you with any additional tax issues, whether it is tax planning, or an IRS audit, whenever they arise. The firm doesn’t disappear after April 15, and does stay open year round.
  5. A CPA firm will retain all your information from one year to the next, making it easier for them to complete your return in the future as well as to anticipate future issues in upcoming years.

Consider these things as you decide how your taxes will be prepared this year. With the increasing complexities that are arising within the tax system, now may be a good time to depend on someone who spends his / her entire year considering tax issues rather than only a short time each season. You can rely on solid tax knowledge and processing technology at KKB. We have been building unyielding trust with our clients in Denver and worldwide for the past 30 years, and we’re not going away.
