How to choose tax preparers?

Whether we like it or not, tax laws and filing formalities these days are never as simple as filing through words. It is very likely that we overlook figures we are entitled to. At the end of it all, individual filing will let you stand with more questions than answers. In such a case, filing your Form 2290 online with an IRS authorized software provider like tax2290.com with complete end-end assistance for e-filing would do great. If you don’t have time or the patience even for that, there are always tax professionals to tie up with who prepare tax returns and file them up for you, for some fee. Tax preparation may be done by a licensed professional such as an attorney, certified public accountant or enrolled agent, or by an unlicensed tax preparation business. Since you are responsible for what’s on your return even though you file it through a tax professional, you have to be wise in choosing the right one. IRS suggests a few factors that would help make such wise decisions.

Qualification of the preparer: Make sure they have their mandatory TPIN (Preparer Tax Identification Number) and have met the minimum competency requirements.

Preparer’s history: Check for any disciplinary actions and licensure status.

Service Fee: Your refund is yours. Do not rely on preparers who base their fee on your refund.

Electronic filing: Verify if they practice the safe and secure electronic filing of your returns. It is mandatory for them to file online through IRS authorized service providers like tax2290.com, while filing for 10 or more returns, unless told otherwise by clients.

Tax professional’s accessibility: You should be able to contact your tax preparer after the return has been filed, in case of any issues.

Never sign a blank return: Do not proceed with preparers who ask you to sign blank tax forms.

Review the returns before signing: Review the filled forms, raise questions and become clear as to what’s happening around the form, check for accuracy and sign once you are comfortable.

Preparer’s signature: As per law, the preparer should sign the return and include their PTIN. You are responsible thereafter, so verify accuracy.

After all this if you successfully decide upon some tax professional’s name to carry forward your return filing, suggest them tax2290.com so that you and your tax preparer mutually enjoy a convenient e-file process on-line.

Nothing can be done to correct it. Assume if a Trucker wrongly calculates the amount of gas left in the tank for the distance to cover and gets struck on the middle of the road. This is a simple error and there is a fix to it.
