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 his 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. As a note, there are differences between accounting professionals.
There are CPA’s, enrolled agents and then book keeprs. Make sure when looking for an accounting professional that you find the one that has the right skills and abilities to fit your businesses or personal accounting needs.
2. Contact the IRS to see if the CPA has been disciplined for fraud or other issues.
