More about tax preparation


Take a look at the following articles to find out about the different types of Boston tax preparers and
how they can help you with your taxes.

OVERVIEW OF EAs

What is an enrolled agent
for taxes?


Enrolled agents (EAs) are income tax experts who have been granted “unlimited practice rights” by the Internal Revenue Service. This designation means enrolled agents are approved to prepare tax returns and file them not only for individuals, but also for businesses and other organizations, and represent tax filers in dealings with the IRS, including
tax audits.

OVERVIEW OF CPAs

What is a CPA (certified
public accountant)?


Certain accountants are legally allowed to perform accounting services, such as tax preparation, for members of the public. These accountants are known as certified public accountants (CPAs). CPAs are licensed by the state after being credentialed and meeting standards of experience
and ethics.

EA AND CPA GUIDE

EA vs. CPA tax professionals: what’s
the difference?


Are you in search of expert help with your taxes? Two of the most qualified tax preparers are enrolled agents (EAs) and certified public accountants (CPAs). To see which one might be a better fit for your tax situation, check out the short review below.

TAX PROFESSIONAL OVERVIEW

What is a tax professional?

Many people prepare federal and state income tax returns for a fee, but only a select number are authorized to represent their clients in matters before the IRS. These select tax preparers are known as Federally Authorized Tax Practitioners (FATPs). Find out more about tax professionals here.

TAX ACCOUNTANT GUIDE

What is a tax accountant?

Boston accountancy is a broad field that can be broken down into various segments, including payroll, cost, and forensic accounting. One important specialty involves the application of tax laws and rules to individuals and businesses. Experts in this specialty are commonly referred to as tax accountants. Tax accountants provide guidance in many areas, including preparing and filing taxes.

TAX DOCUMENT OVERVIEW

What documents do I need to bring to my tax preparer?

Your income tax return is the essential tax document required by the IRS, but it’s not the only one. Income statements like the W-2 or 1099 are also important. So are documents supporting claims of tax credits and deductions. Examine this list of documents you might need to assemble for your
tax preparer.
