Income tax preparation in Vancouver, WA begins 12 to 15 months prior to filing your tax return. This is when consulting with your Allied Accounting & Tax Service Inc. accountant will let you know the tax consequences, or tax benefits, of your personal or business strategies. An ongoing relationship with your tax accountant will prevent mishaps and is the best way to reduce your tax liability through careful tax planning.
Tax time can be time-consuming and stressful. An error can bring the wrath of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) upon you. So why go it alone?
Your Allied accountant won’t ask you to do your own taxes by filling out one of those complex tax organizers required by most tax preparation services. Just bring us what you’ve got and we’ll provide you with personal attention and a stress-free experience.
There are no strict educational requirements to become a tax preparer, though one must typically hold a high school diploma or its equivalent. Some employers may provide on the job training. Others may prefer individuals with some post-secondary training. Community colleges and universities offer certificate courses that can qualify individuals as entry level tax preparers.
There are IRS education requirements for Enrolled Agents, Certified Public Accountants, Enrolled Actuaries, and a very few others.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires registration for all paid tax preparers. Tax preparation professionals must obtain a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) and include it on all returns they sign. Preparers who don’t sign tax returns and are supervised by a certified public accountant, attorney, or enrolled agent are exempt from this regulation. An unrolled tax return preparer is not required to have any continuing education.
