Before you hire someone to prepare your tax returns, you want to conduct an interview and ask several important questions. The answers to these questions will determine whether this tax preparer is qualified to provide what you need.
The third step, and this is important, is to start early! Don’t wait until the last minute to get your preparer your taxes. They will most likely be swamped and they may not get the proper forms submitted on time if you don’t give them enough time. Always plan ahead and you will have no problem getting everything completed well before the due date.
Take care of your community. Regardless of your profession, you have a skill that can help someone less fortunate. Give back to those who need your help.

In addition, volunteering is also a great way to fill gaps in your employment on your resume during periods of unemployment, and will keep your skills sharp.
