Considering hiring a tax professional? Here are some questions to ask to make sure they are qualified.
How many years has the professional been in business?
You want to make sure that the professional you select has the skills, knowledge and experience to get you the results that you want.
How many taxpayers’ IRS problems has the professional personally solved in the last year?
Representing taxpayers with IRS problems is a highly specialized area. Most accountants and attorneys have very little personal experience in solving IRS problems.
What is the professional’s ‘Track Record’?
You only want to hire a Tax Resolution Professional with a successful track record. Ask for specific information about the professional’s success rate.
Does the professional have actual experience handling your type of case?
While many attorneys and accountants have tax experience, you will want to make sure that the professional you hire has actual, hands-on experience in solving your specific type of problem.
How will the professional keep you information about your case?
You want to be comfortable with the frequency of communications you will receive from the professional handling your case. You also want to make sure that you will receive all copies of all communication between the professional and the IRS.
