Why should you use a Certified Public Accountant to file your tax return? Why can’t you just file your own return or use one of those discounted places?
You may think avoiding paying a professional will end up saving you money, but that’s not always the case. The answer is in the numbers – the dollars you will end up with in your wallet.
The difference in a return prepared and filed by a tax professional compared to filing it yourself can be hundreds. Dave Ramsey, a financial educator, motivational speaker, and author has conducted research on the topic. According to a survey conducted by his company, the Lampo Group, Inc. they found the difference between a self-filed return and a return filed by a tax professional was between $347 to $841.
That’s a lot of money.
That difference is one that more than pays for itself by hiring a professional. Dave Ramsey recommends America’s Tax Professionals through the Endorsed Local Provider (ELP) Program. As one of his ELPs, we are proud to offer our expertise and knowledge to our clients.
