As a small business owner you want to reduce your tax burden but may not know what kind of professional is most qualified for the job. To save money on taxes, should you work with a CPA, an accountant, or an enrolled agent? The facts may surprise you.
CPAs and accountants can prepare tax returns but their license does not require any tax expertise. However, enrolled agents specialize in taxes and have obtained an elite license from the IRS. If you’re looking for effective tax planning strategies and worry-free tax preparation at tax time, an EA is your best bet. Here’s why.
Enrolled agents are federally licensed tax professionals who have been authorized by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to represent taxpayers in any state. Being an EA requires adherence to ethical standards and successfully passing a personal background check by the federal government. EAs are also required to complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years in order to preserve their license.
As an enrolled agent, Bottom Line Accounting Inc. offers IRS tax problem resolution, accurate tax preparation, and proactive tax planning services. To find out how we can save you money on taxes or provide help with your state or federal tax problems, call 440-777-0221 or contact us online now.
