- Your Denver tax preparer doesn’t have a PTIN (Preparer Tax Identification Number) – It’s required that anyone who prepares tax returns for compensation must have a valid PTIN. One way to be sure that they have one is to search for them in the IRS’s online PTIN directory. If your tax preparer can’t provide you with one, then you are working with someone who is unlicensed.
- They don’t return calls or emails – When it comes to taxes, regular communication is crucial. Although it’s assumed that an accountant has other clients and a life outside of the office, they should still answer your questions within a reasonable time frame. If you find yourself waiting for days to hear back from your tax preparer, it may be a sign that you need to find a new one.
- Your fee depends on your refund amount – Reputable tax specialists charge a flat rate depending on the forms that need to be filled out instead of the size of your refund. If the case is more pay for a larger refund, your preparer may have incentive to falsify information on your return that can lead to an audit. It’s always better to go with a reputable company that charges a flat rate and provides accurate filings.
