When you’re running a business, you don’t need to be a tax expert, too. But you do need some tax basics. IRS Small Business Advantage gives you the  information you need to stay tax compliant so your business can thrive. 

AccountingChoosing a Tax Professional

With your new responsibilities, you may decide to hire a professional tax preparer to assist with your taxes. Enrolled agents, tax attorneys, and certified public accountants have training and expertise in federal taxes. When selecting a tax professional, ask a few questions to see if he/she offers what you are looking for:

Experience: Does the tax professional have experience in working with similar size and type businesses? Is the professional familiar with your particular line of business?

Services: Does the tax professional offer electronic filing—the safest and most efficient way to file your tax returns?

Price: What does the tax professional charge for services? If the IRS examines your return, what is the tax professional’s policy on assisting you? Is the tax professional authorized to practice before the IRS?

Qualifications: New regulations require all paid tax return preparers to register with the IRS and obtain a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN). Ensure that the tax professional you choose has a PTIN.
