Are you thinking about hiring a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) but not sure where to look or who to ask? A CPA can help both individuals and businesses with everything from preparing tax returns to answering any financial questions that affect them. CPAs can ultimately save you time and money with their expertise. Some reject hiring a CPA because of the cost, and feel they can use a computer program for tax preparation instead. In an ever changing regulatory environment, staying up on all the laws and regulations has become difficult (and computer programs can’t interpret the law or offer savings strategies). The new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is a perfect example. Do you know how the wide sweeping tax reform will affect you?

When hiring a CPA some considerations to make include researching: experience level, education, communication style, and comparing skill sets. To read more about these considerations click here.
