Why should you use a CPA vs. Filing on your own?
The best reason is because we review the return and ensure that all the calculations are correct and that you are getting the largest refund available.
I was doing a final review of a return I was preparing for a client and noticed that one item was being miscalculated. Catching this error in the return increased the clients refund by almost $500!
One question not answered correctly ( or maybe not asked by the tax software) can literally reduce your refund by hundreds of dollars.
