File Your Taxes Electronically
There are plenty of local places in Atlanta, GA income tax preparation can be performed at. You just need to find the one that works for you--call GBC.
This is the bane of many a worker's year. But it doesn't have to be a miserable experience. Having the right people to help you can make a world of difference when it comes to taxes.
Make sure they can file your taxes electronically, so there is little for you to do. Also, check on the abilities of the paid preparers that are hired at the company. Can they handle difficult scenarios? Where did they learn to prepare taxes?
How much can you expect to pay to have your taxes handled? Several factors can affect the price. First of all, the degree of experience that the preparer has may affect their base fee. Often what you pay for is what you get, so better to shell out a little bit more for good service and peace of mind. Another factor is the size of the business that you operate. If it is just you and some expense receipts, you will obviously pay less than if you have several employees and operate multiple companies.
You usually have 4 levels of tax preparer to choose from.
- CPA – This will be the most expensive option since they have the most training. Being a CPA, however, does not make someone a good tax preparer automatically, so be sure to ask if this particular certified public accountant can supply you with what you need.
- EA – An enrolled agent is someone who is trained to prepare taxes. They differ from a CPA by not having the same variety of training. The only way to become an EA is to either pass several tests or to have actually worked with the IRS for a period of years. This makes them very qualified to help you.
- Tax Preparation Chain – These places will usually be able to prepare your taxes cheaper, but may not be able to help as much if you have a lot of questions or some tricky things to deal with. Watch out for hidden fees if your taxes are not very straightforward. A little something will be tacked on for everything they have to do in addition to just standard tax paperwork.
- Free – How can you get your tax preparation done for free? If you didn't have very much income or are a senior, you may be able to get some free help with your taxes. Check around to see if you qualify.
