When to hire a tax professional

Fox Business has a timely article today about when to hire a tax professional that I thought was worth passing along. A couple of thoughts I’d pass along:

* I’ll echo the sentiment that you should choose someone who’s both credentialed and highly recommended. There are a lot of shops out there who are only open a few months a year, with little continuity from year to year, and these are nowhere to be found once issues pop up with the IRS or state agencies. Find someone who’s available all year and has credibility.

* Sometimes people will hire a professional not necessarily for expertise, but for peace of mind. It’s the same reason I hire an electrician or plumber to do a task that I probably can do myself, but would rather have someone who I know and trust do the task.
