In a recent post, we talked about why you should work with an expert for your business taxes. These professionals can offer recordkeeping, representation in an IRS audit, business tax strategies, and more. But how do you find the right small business tax preparation specialist to help you? At Blackwell’s Tax Service, we understand that you want to find the best of the best when it comes to tax experts. Here are a few tips to help you get connected with the right one in the Fort Mill and Rock Hill, SC area:

  • Do your research – Research is the number one step to finding any quality tax specialist. Look at different tax preparation companies and find out about the specific kinds of services they offer to their corporate clients. A company may have a great mission statement but they might not be able to offer you the exact service you need. Work with experts who can prepare your business taxes and stay away from those who only offer personal tax preparation services. They won’t be able to give you the types of help you’ll need for your business.
  • Make contact – Choose two or three services you’re interested in and contact them either by phone or in person. Legitimate tax preparation specialists will be more than willing to meet with you and will strive for open communication.
  • Ask questions – Have questions prepared and make sure you get specific answers to each. Explain your full situation and your past experiences with tax preparation professionals. Ask them about their strategies for helping their clients, especially clients with businesses like yours.
  • Reflect – Take time to reflect on your meetings with your finalists. You want to be thorough and thoughtful as you review your findings before you make a decision.
