it’s about this time that the phone starts ringing with people who need to file the returns. Do try and remember that you will never know how truly qualified your tax preparer is unless something goes wrong. It’s not until you get a letter from the IRS that you find out whether your tax preparer made a mistake. I will tell you some indicators of a good accountant.
If you see stacks of files on every file cabinet and desk and surface area, that’s not a good sign.
if the office stinks, or has bad carpet, or is it a crappy old building, these are also indications that quality might be lacking.
