More about tax preparation

Experienced tax experts, certified public accountants, enrolled agents, tax attorneys—each of these tax preparers brings something unique to your Minneapolis tax preparation. Check out the brief articles below to learn how these tax professionals can help improve
your tax outcome.

LEARNING ABOUT TAX PROFESSIONALS

What is a tax professional?

Only tax professionals credentialed by a third-party entity—a state licensing board, a state bar association, or the IRS itself—are permitted to speak on behalf of their clients before the Treasury Department if questions arise regarding a tax return. Take a look at the complete article to understand more about
tax professionals.

LEARNING ABOUT CPA VETTING
