Choosing a Tax Preparer
Michigan does not require tax preparers to be licensed; however many are licensed, certified and belong to professional organizations that require a certain level of education and provide on-going training. Unqualified tax preparers may overlook legitimate deductions or credits, which could result in you paying more tax than you should.
Beware of Identity Theft!
The Internal Revenue Service is taking additional steps during the 2013 tax season to protect taxpayers and help victims of identity theft and refund fraud. Additionally, the Michigan Department of Treasury is warning taxpayers to protect their identities and personal information very carefully.
Value of Working With A CPA
Among the most trusted financial advisors, CPAs adhere to strict professional standards of conduct, which stress independence, integrity, objectivity, technical competence and adherence to professional standards.
