"I joined to find a resource to help me organize back expense reports with a contract separation with a large company. I need an account to help me organize my expenses," gather receipts and help get the expense reports submitted and documented. I will look now for another service provider using this service

was professional, to the point, and efficient. It was precisely what we wanted and then some. We were hoping the consultation would take" 60-90 minutes and it took 60. We'll definitely need be back when we need such services again.

Filing your own taxes? Avoid these 5 mistakes

Before you hit send on your 2013 tax filing, make sure you've considered these common mistakes Angie's List experts routinely see individuals make.

Accountants

When it comes to doing your taxes and finances, one of the biggest questions that often comes up is whether you should hire an accountant or just handle the matter yourself. Although accountants can be pricey, they often provide many benefits and protections that you can't get by doing the books yourself.

After crunching all of those numbers, they deserve a little rest and relaxation.

I explained my tax situation to the preparer. Against my advice, she indicated that I owed a penalty. It took 6 weeks to prep my returns - and they are

. Close to the filing date, I received my returns that stated I owed the IRS thousands of dollars.
I double-checked the IRS regs - I did NOT owe the amount. My return was amended - point being, I am not a CPA, and if I had not checked the regs and got my return amended, I would have been out about $3K.

Things went very poorly. Ms.
Carlsbad Accountants Provider Name Locked
was extremely non-responsive to our emails and messages. It would take weeks to return our calls. Ultimately, she did respond when we said we were going to seek another accountant. She said she had been moving her office and was very busy. My opinion is that Ms.
Carlsbad Accountants Provider Name Locked
may have a lot of corporate work and therefore less responsive to her smaller, individual tax clients. My suggestion for others is to go with another accountant. Check out their ratings with the Better Business Bureau and CPA regulatory agencies. After our issues with Ms.
Carlsbad Accountants Provider Name Locked
, I found two glowing reviews on Google and one extremely negative one. The negative compliant was largely like ours...bad advice that resulted in penalties and interest as well as non-responsiveness. I really wish I would have Googled her first. I also have to note that Ms.
Carlsbad Accountants Provider Name Locked
has a beautiful webpage and is very present on social media such as FaceBook and Twitter. I am beginning to wonder if she may have employed a PR firm to manage her reputation online. In today's world, that is probably a good idea for any business. However, I am wondering if, in this case, her online assistance was meant to clean up her online reputation by pushing negative reviews off of
Carlsbad Accountants Provider Name Locked
results by returning all of her social media posts first in
Carlsbad Accountants Provider Name Locked
results. Also, it is interesting to note that Ms.
Carlsbad Accountants Provider Name Locked
tied for first place in the Mountain Express reader poll. I am not sure how that could be. My guess is that most of her regular clients with
Carlsbad Accountants Provider Name Locked
taxes likely never had a problem with her. And, as she is pretty amiable, I could see folks giving her a good rating. However, there are a number of prior clients that had more complex tax questions that were mishandled. Other accountants in town did confidentially mention that they have had a number of new clients come to them after previously using the services of

CPA. Save yourself the hassle. Research your account option well. Be sure that you speak with your accountant about liability and what happens when a mistake is made.

My wife and I met with
Carlsbad Accountants Provider Name Locked
a few weeks ago. We were looking for an accountant who could do more than just file our tax return.
In retirement, paying taxes and tax strategies can become more complicated than ever before. We wanted someone we could bounce ideas off, regarding things like RMDs and

conversions....More /> I'm positive we found the right person.

was very knowledgeable about all aspects of our tax situation and took time to go over everything with us. I believe this is the beginning of a long relationship.

is a very enjoyable professional. She gave us a number of pointers for this year and next in regards to tax strategy. She also cleared up a number of misconceptions and some misinformation given to us from other friends and family. We will be creating an LLC for my wife's business this year and converting it to a corporation for the next year based on
Carlsbad Accountants Provider Name Locked
's advice. While adding a corporation into the tax equation does raise the total price of her service, it ultimately puts more cash into our pocket.

I believe personal income was ~$300 and adding the corporation bumps the annual to $500. My wife and I maintain our own books and quarterly estimated payments, so that is not included in the aforementioned fees.
Bottom-line: It is nice to have a respectable professional to turn to for answers.
