Reply To: Taxes
If you are already doing all the work, why pay a CPA? It is so if something gets audited, you will have someone explain (or to blame)? Or is it that you do not understand the tax forms, and your numbers may not be in such good shape as you think? If you do not trust your CPA, you either need a new one or none. Decide why you use one, and act accordingly. I got the name of the one we use from the Dave Ramsey site, under ELPs (endorsed, local providers). I question why you find it so necessary to go to all the firms for your financial dealings. This is probably a source of most of the expenses you incur. Talk to many rich people, and the answer they provide is “keep it simple”.
