They are several types of tax professionals who prepare taxes. Perform an assessment to see what type of tax professional you need or if you can file your taxes on your own.
Accountant vs CPA
CPA's are accountants who go through a stricter process to conduct business and have to pass a licensing examination in their state. All CPA's are accountants, but not all accountants are CPA's.
Tax Preparation Companies
Some tax preparations companies recruit students, stay-at-home moms or retirees to help them during tax season simply take a 1 day or 1 week course to get hired. Some tax preparations companies charging per hour or per form. No one can guarantee when you will get your tax return back, not even the IRS.
You should hire a tax lawyer if you have received any notices from the IRS to appear in court, a lien or judgment has been filed against you by a tax authority, you owe a large sum of money to the IRS, you are a business owner with partners or investors, or you founded a non-profit company.
