Expert Tax Preparation: Key to Financial Accuracy


In an era where financial accuracy is paramount, the importance of choosing the right tax preparation service cannot be overstated. Recent recommendations from the Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) in their 2023 Annual Report to Congress, highlight a significant issue in the tax preparation industry: the lack of standardization and competency among many tax preparers. 

In this context, GreenGrowth CPAs stands out for its commitment to expert tax preparation. Our focus on accuracy, professionalism, and client satisfaction aligns with the highest industry standards, ensuring that our clients receive not only compliant but strategically optimized tax services.

The Current State of Tax Preparation

The IRS processes over 160 million individual income tax returns annually, with the majority prepared by paid tax return preparers. Despite this, a surprising number of these preparers are not credentialed, leading to a concerning trend of inaccuracies in tax returns. This not only risks taxpayers overpaying or underpaying their taxes but also increases the likelihood of penalties and interest charges.

In FY 2022, an estimated 32% of improper payments, amounting to $18.2 billion, were attributed to erroneous Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) claims, predominantly filed by non-credentialed preparers.

The Need for Credentialed Professionals in Tax Preparation

Unlike other professions such as law, medicine, and finance, where practitioners are required to meet rigorous licensing and competency standards, the tax preparation field is startlingly unregulated. This lack of standardization results in a disparity in the quality of tax services provided to consumers. Recognizing this gap, TAS has urged Congress to authorize the IRS to set minimum competency standards for tax preparers and revoke the credentials of those engaged in improper conduct.

GreenGrowth CPAs: A Step Above the Rest

At GreenGrowth CPAs, we understand the critical importance of accuracy and professionalism in tax preparation. Every tax return processed in our office is meticulously overseen, managed, and reviewed by a qualified Enrolled Agent or Certified Public Accountant (CPA). This not only aligns with the TAS’s recommendations for increased competency in tax preparation but also provides our clients with the peace of mind that their financial affairs are handled by experts.

Our Unique Approach to Tax Preparation

What sets GreenGrowth CPAs apart is our unique team-based approach to tax preparation. When you choose us, we asign a dedicated tax preparation team rather than a single individual. This ensures a diverse range of expertise and perspectives are applied to your tax situation.
