Why should I use a CPA?
When trusting someone to prepare something as important and serious as a Federal or State tax return, a Certified Public Accountant is your best choice. To become a CPA, a candidate is required to have a bachelors degree + two years (4000 hours) of accounting work experience under a licensed supervisor and then must pass a 14 hour Uniform CPA Exam. In order to remained licensed, a CPA is required to complete 80 hours of Continuing Professional Education every two years. This education helps a CPA stay on top of the ever changing tax laws. Selecting the right tax preparer could make the difference between sitting at home enjoying the advantages of a healthy tax refund or sitting in an IRS office, nervously explaining every expense you claimed for the past five years.
A highly trained CPA provides the added benefit of being able to configure an overall tax plan, and can guide you through complex financial situations. If you've recently been divorced, retired, opened or closed a business, or had any other lifestyle changes that significantly impacts your financial situation, a CPA is your best bet. A CPA has legal standing to appear in place of a taxpayer at the IRS. The staff at Camp-Pilgrim can prepare any tax return, big or small. We will make sure that you take advantage of the latest tax laws and that you pay the smallest amount of tax you are legally required to pay.
According to the IRS, it takes the average person 14 or more hours to complete their Income Tax Return each year. The benefits you receive from us go far beyond the preparation of your return. We provide personal guidance to insure all advantages and opportunities to save tax dollars are taken. This provides you with confidence and security that you are taking advantage of every opportunity under the current tax laws, while reducing the risks of an IRS audit
