Hiring the right CPA can be challenging, so that's why I love my job to teach people how to not get duped by people who don't know what they are doing. Here's a great article I came across when I was checking my email this morning.
"Certified Public Accountants do so much more than yearly tax returns. Their services include financial analysis and performance, estate and tax planning, retirement, long range planning, managing personal investments, and providing general financial advice. Hiring a CPA to help you manage your finances and make sound decisions is an excellent idea, especially for those who are starting a business or need help with bookkeeping or complicated tax returns."
