Top Questions To Ask Your Newton Highlands Tax Preparation Service
It is recommended that you choose a local tax preparation service to complete your tax forms and any additional accounting work needed for tax. However, before you hire the service there are some questions that you need to ask the service. These questions will help you find the right tax preparation service.
Do You Have A PTIN?
The PTIN or Preparation Tax Identification number is a legal requirement for anyone preparing federal tax returns on behalf of someone else. If the service does not have this number they are not allowed to prepare your tax returns. It is possible to find local services that have this number using the IRS website.
Have You Prepared Similar Tax Returns Before?
There is no one-size fits all solution when it comes to tax returns and the return you compete will differ to someone else. It is important that you find out if the service has completed the returns that you need before. Some tax preparation services will focus on certain types of taxes such as rentals or business and you need to be aware of this. If you have any special circumstances that will impact your tax return you need to find a service that has the knowledge to help you.
Do You Know The Requirements For Massachusetts?
One of the reasons why it is recommended that you find a local service is the varying requirements for states. While federal income tax is the same and the rules do not change there are certain localities that have different filing requirements. These special requirements are what your preparation service needs to know about.
Are Your Accounting Fees Comparable to Other Newton Highlands Tax Preparers?
When you ask this question you need to take careful note of the wording the service uses. You should not ask how much the fees are, but rather how they are determined as they will vary depending on the complexity of the return. Some services will have a discounted cost for the federal return, but add on costs for the local returns. It is vital that you understand what the full cost of using the service will be.
Some services will state that their fee is determined as a percentage of your anticipated return. You should be wary of these services as they have an incentive to encourage inappropriate deductions and credits which could harm you in the future.
Who Will Sign The Return?
When your return is submitted it needs to have the signature of your tax preparer. The return should also have the PTIN on it by the signature. You should never sign a return that you have not prepared yourself and a good tax preparation service should not ask you to.
Will I Receive A Copy Of The Return at My Newton Highlands Address?
While it is not unreasonable to leave the tax preparation service without a copy of your return as it could take time to assemble, you should receive a copy in a reasonable amount of time. If the service does not offer information on how soon you will get the copy you might to consider a different service.
