What makes one tax return better than another, if they are both accurate?
Many accountants and tax preparers simply don’t recognize the additional value they could deliver to their small business clients, if only they would become more involved at the beginning of the accounting process where the information is generated and collected rather than taking a purely after-the-fact position and reporting only at the end of the cycle. Providing information after it is too late to do anything about it has little value in today’s fast-paced and competitive landscape. Small business owners tend to rely on those who help them; if your professional practice isn’t helping your clients in tangible ways, they will find someone else who does.
