In the past several years, there have been many innovations in the way we file our taxes. With the advent of new technology, companies like Intuit, H&R Block and Jackson-Hewitt are constantly coming up with seemingly cheaper and easier ways to file. While these seem like a blessing to those who dread this time of year, they may not be as effective or accurate as more traditional methods.
Tax law can be very complex and is continually changing. With each year, there are a new set of problems and solutions. To get the most out of a business or personal return, it is very important that one seeks the help of professional who is well versed and up to date on each of the variations. Simply plugging information into brand new software or dropping it off at a neighborhood H&R Block, where your plumber could be working for the season, can be very risky. Just recently, H&R Block made a very detrimental filing blunder, causing some 600,000 students to expect lengthy delays on getting their refunds.
A licensed CPA will have the proper education, experience, and current information you need to ensure that your return is handled with care and diligence. In Texas, CPAs require 150+ hours of college course study and, on average, 40+ hours of annual continuing education, in order to stay up-to-date on everything you will need to file properly. These standards go a lot further than the typical 3 hour income tax course an H&R block employee will have attended.
At Rosenhouse Group PC, we want to ensure everyone gets the most from this tax season. It is very upsetting to read that a "trusted" tax preparation service has let down so many. If you feel your return was not handled properly by H&R Block, Jackson Hewitt, Liberty Tax, or one of the off the shelf tax softwares, we'd be happy to take a look at it free of charge. We also promise highly competitive rates in the case that it needs to be amended. Please call or come by today, we?d love to hear your story.
