Online Virtual Business and Personal Tax Preparations Advisory
Tax preparation is a career that is on the rise and provides a needed and welcome service to the community. Most tax preparers prepare, file, or assist with general tax forms. Beyond these basic services, a tax preparer can also defend a taxpayer before the IRS. This includes audits and tax court matters. They must help their clients comply with state and federal tax codes, while minimizing the client's tax burden. The sanctity of the electronic filing system is taken very seriously and has become an area of increased scrutiny, primarily because it is a high-risk area for potential hacking and fraud. As a result, it is a bit more work for a preparer to complete this process. In many ways, e-filing requirements are like acquiring a PTIN. The electronic filing requirements call for two additional security measures. First, a professional certification (such as a PTIN) is required, as well as an official copy of your fingerprints. Once you have submitted the documents online and submitted your fingerprints, you will receive an Electronic File Identification Number (EFIN). You will then be ready to access the portal to submit electronic submissions.
