Sometimes we may need a little help with our taxes. This is where hiring a professional may come in handy. But there are some very important questions you should ask before hiring a tax advisor.
First off, identify what services they offer, and what services you need. Can they just help prepare tax returns, or be there for you throughout the whole year? What about bookkeeping and financial reporting services? Ask potential advisors if they’ll be able to understand your unique circumstances and discuss abnormal financial events. Lastly, how aggressively is this person willing to work to get you the full refund you deserve? You don’t want someone who is lax, but you also don’t want someone who will waste time chasing pennies.
