Well… we know what we’re doing. We’re professionals and we don’t just stop at our certifications or designations. We are consistently training and learning about the ever-changing tax code. Know that anyone can get a PTIN from the IRS. A PTIN allows a “preparer” to file a return on behalf of someone. Only preparers with one of three designations are professionally trained and certified to be IRS qualified preparers. Those designations are Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Enrolled Agent (EA), or Tax Attorney (TA).
If you go to one of the national brands or a preparer without one of those designations there’s a chance that something could be off on your return… meaning you are leaving money on the table.
