Hiring a Glendale CPA is the only way to ensure that your business or personal income taxes are handled properly. Filing a wrong tax return can result in additional fines and penalties, and perhaps an audit. But while a CPA is extremely useful if you have limited or no accounting knowledge, you shouldn’t trust a random CPA.
Checking a CPA’s credentials is the best way to ensure that you hire an experienced professional.
1. Ask for their licensing information. CPA’s are licensed by the state. Ask the CPA for his licensing information and then check with your local department of professional regulation to confirm the license.
2. Contact the IRS to see if the CPA has been disciplined for fraud or other issues.
3. Check with your local Better Business Bureau. If complaints have been filed against a Glendale CPA, the BBB may have this information on file. Ideally, you want a CPA with a flawless record.
Hiring the best CPA in Glendale isn’t just a matter of opinion (though the opinions of other satisfied customers does help greatly). Selecting the right accountant can make a significant difference in the amount you pay in tax, what you may be able to put into a long term savings plan, and most importantly the potential protection from unnecessary IRS scrutiny that no individual or business owners wants.
