Your CPA is your number one resource for filing your taxes, but there are some things they cannot do (we know, hard to believe!). The IRS protects your privacy and limits what CPAs can do after they’ve filed your taxes.
CPAs are different than accountants. While CPAs are always accountants, it’s not always the other way around. CPAs go through continuing education, are licensed by a governing body, and monitored to ensure they follow all codes of conduct.
