Your tax accountant can’t manage how you spend your money; but he or she can help you plan and create a reserve for tax day!

Also, check if they have enough knowledge about Internal Revenue Services (IRS) and the Tax Law. See to it if they have referrals from others especially your friends.

He/she should also be very versatile especially during an extension and will carefully get you through such situations.
