- Check the Qualifications
Before you give access to any tax advisor about your company's finances, you should pay attention to the accountant's qualifications. Every tax preparer is required by the IRS regulations to hold a Preparer Tax Identification Number or PTIN. Make sure that you choose one who has this credential and apart from this, is also familiar with the requisite knowledge and information one needs in this field. Tax return preparers are supposed to pass an IRS exam and complete 15 hours of education every year.
- Check the Background History
Make sure you run a background check of the tax preparation service. You should check if the tax preparer has a good background record under the BBB or any other disciplinary action has been taken against them with respect to their licenses. For the certified public accountants, you should consult with the accountancy state boards, for attorneys, the state bar associations, and the enrolled agents, you should go to the IRS office of enrollment.
