Earlier this week the Roni Deutch Tax Center – Tax Help Blog posted helpful new article with tips on how to get high quality tax services. As the blog entry explains, it is very important to seek out competent tax professionals, as making a mistake on your return can result in thousands of dollars in missed deductions, or even IRS underpayment penalties.
1. False Guarantees
Always beware of a tax preparation office that guarantees you a large refund without even reviewing your financial information. They could be trying to mislead you. Alternatively, they might have the intention of using false claims to get you a refund no matter what. All of our tax professionals are committed to getting you the biggest refund possible, and can typically provide a free estimate over the phone. Check out our locations page to find the phone number to your nearest Roni Deutch Tax Center.
2. Ask What They Need
When you do call and speak to a tax preparer over the phone you should always ask them what they need from you. It is a huge red flag if they tell you they do not need much information from you, or if they rush you off the phone. In order to provide you with an estimate they should ask you a variety of questions to determine what credits and deductions you qualify for.
3. Know What You Need
Depending on how complicated your tax return is, you may have to seek out a professional qualified to prepare it. If you are a wage earning employee and do not own a house, then most tax preparers will probably be able to assist you. However, if you have a complicated business return, then you might want to call around and find a professional experienced with business taxes.
