happy new year!
I did some research on possible local tax preparers with experience with indies. Here are two that I just contacted: #1 XXX, name & website here. He is estimating ~$350 total, depending on how organized I am (which i believe i am pretty organized as far as possible deductions and receipts go, thanks to your book). He wants to see a copy of our 2008 returns, though our 2008 returns have no self-employed work on them (that started this year). He was recommended by a friend whose father (runs a nature tour business, not sure if he is self-employed) uses him for his taxes.
And #2 YYY, name & website here. I am still waiting to hear back from him, but recommended by another friend.
If you have any info/comments on either one, I would appreciate it.
hope all is well.
You need an appendix removed. How many appendectomies did the doctor do? Are you his first? You need to ask a similar question of your potential tax pro.
There no mention of self-employeds on his site. He does mention small business. Candy store? Widget makers?
Site says check out our blog. However, the blog is not CPA's material but columns from NY Times, Wharton, etc.
Before you talk with the second guy read these posts tax pros - tax prep fees - tax returns
