What Is A Tax Preparer
Tax preparers work for independent or franchised tax preparation services and sometimes for lawyers or accountants involved in tax work. They use their knowledge of federal, state, and local tax codes and publications to prepare tax returns and make sure that their clients do not pay unnecessary taxes. Tax preparers usually specialize in preparing tax returns for individuals rather than for businesses or corporations.
Tax laws are subject to frequent change and vary from one area to another. For example, some states have community property laws that affect the taxes owed by married couples who file joint returns. Tax preparers must be aware of all the provisions and annual changes in the tax laws to advise their clients competently.
Tax preparers work intensively from January to April, which is considered the tax season. Evening and weekend work is required during this period to complete the workload. Because work tapers off after April 15, the annual deadline for submission of tax returns, few workers are employed full time as tax preparers for the entire year. Many work at other occupations during the remaining months or moonlight as tax preparers during tax season.
If the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or the courts have reason to question the legitimacy of an individual’s tax return, the tax preparer may testify about the preparation of the tax return. Tax preparers who have taken a special examination given by the IRS may represent their firm’s clients before the IRS during a tax audit.
Tax preparation involves considerable research and attention to detail, so an ability to read quickly and thoroughly is essential. In addition, tax preparers must have an aptitude for working with figures and mathematical formulas. Because tax preparation firms use computers to complete clients’ tax returns, familiarity with computer technology is also helpful.
What Areas Do We Serve?
While King Financial Services does work with many businesses in the local Dallas and Fort Worth area, this is not the only area we have clients. Sandra King is an Enrolled Agent which grants her the ability to work with clients all over the country without state limitations.
What Is An Enrolled Agent?
An enrolled agent is a person who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service by either passing a three-part comprehensive IRS test covering individual and business tax returns, or through experience as a former IRS employee. Enrolled agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards. Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years.
Enrolled agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), have unlimited practice rights. This means they are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can represent clients before.
Who Should I Work With?
From the IRS.gov:
There are various types of tax return preparers, including certified public accountants, enrolled agents, attorneys, and many others who don’t have a professional credential. You expect your preparer to be skilled in tax preparation and to accurately file your income tax return. You trust him or her with your most personal information. They know about your marriage, your income, your children and your social security numbers – the details of your financial life.
Most tax return preparers provide outstanding and professional tax service. However, each year, some taxpayers are hurt financially because they choose the wrong tax return preparer. Be sure to check our tips for choosing a tax preparer and how to avoid unethical “ghost” return preparers.
What kind of tax preparer do I need?
Anyone can be a paid tax return preparer as long as they have an IRS Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN). However, tax return preparers have differing levels of skills, education and expertise.
