Why Choose a CPA?

A CPA, or Certified Public Accountant, is a licensed accounting professional who has met rigorous educational, examination, and experience requirements. Accountants, on the other hand, may have a bachelor’s degree in accounting but do not have the same level of education, experience, or licensing as a CPA.

There are several important differences between CPAs and accountants.

  • CPAs are licensed by a state board of accountancy, while accountants are not. This means that CPAs are held to a higher standard of education, experience, and ethics than accountants.
  • CPAs are required to take continuing education courses to maintain their licenses, while accountants are not. This ensures that CPAs stay up-to-date on the latest accounting and tax laws.
  • CPAs can perform a wider range of accounting and tax services than accountants. For example, only CPAs can audit financial statements, prepare tax returns for public companies, and represent clients before the IRS.

If you are looking for an accounting professional to help you with your business or personal finances, it is important to choose a CPA. CPAs have the education, experience, and licensing to provide you with the highest quality services.

Here are some additional benefits of hiring a CPA:

  • CPAs can help you save money on taxes. They have the expertise to identify tax deductions and credits that you may be eligible for.
  • CPAs can help you avoid penalties from the IRS. They know the tax laws inside and out and can help you file your taxes correctly.
  • CPAs can provide you with peace of mind. Knowing that your taxes are being handled by a qualified professional can give you peace of mind.

If you are considering hiring an accountant, be sure to ask about their education, experience, and licensing.
