Your trust and estate are your life, so it is important to find the perfect match while looking for tax help. You of course need to find experts who specialize in this specific field, but it is also important to find the right kind of people for the job.
This article outlines three things to look for while seeking professional help with your estate or trust taxes. We then discuss how we may be able to help you.
Find A Real Expert In Estate And Trust Tax:
While searching for professional tax help, you will come across dozens of accounting firms who claim to specialize in taxes. These firms are most likely telling the truth; after all, an accounting firm that cannot do your taxes would be quite odd.
However, estate and trust tax is a specific subfield of accounting, so it is important to ensure you find professionals who have extensive experience in this specific field. Ask any prospective partner about his or her past experience working specifically in estate and trust tax. Also, ask about the types of clients with which the firm works. Anyone can claim to be an expert, but few will be able to prove it.
Seek Out Good Communication:
Communication is key in every industry, and accounting is no different. Excellent communication is especially important for a topic as sensitive as your estate or trust. You want to ensure you work with people who can effectively communicate with you and who are trustworthy. This means that while you search for a tax professional, you should not only look for professional credentials, but you should also seek out someone with whom you can connect and trust.
Look Into Small Accounting Firms:
Huge firms may have the brand name recognition, but they also have the bureaucracy that comes with it. This bureaucracy in many cases can also come with poor communication and unnecessary hoops to jump through, which is not something you will want to deal with while working on your estate or trust.
Because of this, we recommend checking out smaller accounting firms that will be able to give you more attention and one-on-one time. Smaller firms provide the opportunity to connect more on an individual basis with experts with the same credentials as those at larger firms.
