4 Tips for Choosing a Tax Professional


If you are seeking a tax professional, Victory State Bank suggests that you carefully look into the qualifications of the professional you are considering.

Staten Island’s only community-based business bank advises that taxpayers in need of guidance follow these tips from USA.gov:

1)      Tax professionals have varying levels of skills, education, and expertise. Check their qualifications before making a decision.


2)      To find out about a tax preparer’s history, ask the Better Business Bureau.


3)      For CPAs and attorneys, check for any disciplinary actions with the State Board of Accountancy or the State Bar Association.


4)      If you’re considering an enrolled agent — someone with the authority to represent you before the IRS — make sure to verify their status.
