Do I Need an Accountant?

Have you ever found yourself wondering if you need an accountant? Whether you’re an individual, small business owner, or the head of a large company, there are benefits for everyone when it comes to hiring an accountant. Many individuals come to find that they’re in need of an accountant around tax season when they realize that they’re not as familiar with tax laws as they ought to be. Additionally, different life events, such as adopting a child or buying a new home, may entitle you to tax credits you’re unfamiliar with, which is why it is a wise choice to entrust your tax filing to an experienced accountant.

But there are many other times that you may wonder, “Do I need an accountant?” If you own real estate property or rentals, having an accountant to handle your bookkeeping is a good idea. If you’re a business owner, there are often many tax credits you may qualify for that you’re unaware of, so leaving your filing up to a professional who knows all the ins and outs of tax law could save you a lot of money. If you’re looking for an experienced Long Island CPA firm, you’ve found your match with DeFreitas & Minsky, LLP.
