3 Steps to Quickly Find a Tax Professional

3 Steps to Quickly Find a Tax Professional

This topic has been discussed time and time again, but now is the time of the year when it should really hit home. If you have a tax professional you trust, it won’t be long before you are scheduling an appointment and filing your final return.

But what if you don’t have a tax professional? What if you need to make a change this year? With the filing deadline closing in quickly, you don’t want to wait too long to start your search. Not only will this put you behind the eight ball, but you may soon find that some tax pros don’t have any availability.

Here are three steps you can take to quickly find a tax professional:

1. Use the internet. This is the best way to make a list of tax professionals in your area. Better yet, you can read reviews associated with each and every one. Combine all this information and you have just what you need to narrow your options.

2. Ask around. Does a family member have a suggestion? How about a coworker? This is often the best way to find a reputable and reliable service professional. Don’t be shy about asking people in your life for a referral. This could save you a lot of time and stress.

3. Pick up the phone. There is nothing wrong with sending emails to request more information, but remember this: tax professionals are extremely busy during this time of the year. An email could get swept under the rug. A phone call, however, will ensure that you get in touch with the right person as soon as possible.

Follow these three tips if you are in a hurry to find a tax professional.

I always recommend asking around, especially if you would like to use a local tax professional. Sometimes the best people don't advertise so asking reliable sources is always a great idea.
