Today on the podcast we're answering the question "What are the benefits/pitfalls of hiring a tax strategist versus a CPA?"
If you're working on anything related to tax, you want someone who knows what they are doing. Meg suggests you be careful about anyone who is calling themselves a tax strategist, and make sure you are working with a CPA or a tax lawyer like Braden. You don't need a CPA or tax lawyer to provide tax returns.
Beyond tax prep, you should hire a CPA anytime you want to understand how to maximize your business operations. For example, when you start selling more and making more money, should you consider becoming an s corp. Anytime you're doing anything different like expanding into more states, changing up your product lines, selling internationally, or even if you are just starting out. A one hour conversation can sometimes give you what you need for the next 6 months to a year. It is recommended you look for a CPA that has tax expertise, not all of them do.
