A lot of us have begun or will be getting our W-2 forms shortly, meaning it's about that time to start thinking about income taxes and a potential refund or the coming April 15 deadline to pay in. With the beginning of a new tax season, the Better Business Bureau recently offered a list of tips to keep in mind if you need help from someone trustworthy in the tax preparation business.
Ask around -- Get referrals from friends or family and research tax preparation services at www.thefirstbbb.org.
Consider accessibility -- Some services wind down operations shortly after the April 15 deadline. If the IRS finds errors or you become subject to an audit, you need to be sure you can contact your tax preparer throughout the year.
Be wary -- Don't risk engaging tax preparation services that promise refunds much larger than the competition and avoid those who base their fee on a percentage of what you'll get back.
