Why do I need a CPA instead of using one of
the online tax services?
While the online services are convenient, are they going to be available
whenever you need them? Are they going to amend your tax return if
there is an error in it? Are they going to advise you of changes in the
tax code that may affect prior, current and future returns? Do they know
you? Do they know your business? Finally, what are they going
to do with the information that they collect from you? Are they
going to use it to sell other services to you? Are they going to sell
your name and household income information to telemarketers? Are they
going to assure the confidentiality of your income, investments, expenses and
social security numbers?
