Fast Forward Academy
Taxes, taxes, taxes. Tax season is over, but like vampire books and Tom Cruise, it never goes away. How do you do your taxes?
I get my taxes done with my tax accountant who came to me by way of my husband who came to him by way of a referral. We love our tax accountant and can’t imagine working with anyone else. While my father is the kind of person who does taxes on his own, many people I know are like me, and they use tax accountants. Now I don’t remember who said it, nor do I remember exactly how the quote goes, but like a hackneyed rip-off artist, I’m going to misquote — if there are two trustworthy people you want in your life, it’s your accountant and your mechanic.
Personally, I don’t know much about what it takes to be an accountant or what you’re supposed to do to maintain your accountant credentials. I do know that when it comes to teaching, you’re required to take a certain number of classes every so often to stay on top of the latest information. It seems like everything is that way. You can’t just learn something, get licensed for it, and never learn again. Your career is a lifelong educational opportunity. And with our economy the way it is, it doesn’t surprise me that accounting and tax filing info could change from time to time, which is why schools like Fast Forward Academy exist: to provide enrolled agent continuing education. Fast Forward offers pass guarantees to help ea continuing education students stay on top of the latest guidelines from the IRS. This in turns helps people like me (ie, the customer).
So, there you have it. Fast Forward Academy. Tell your money-managing friend about it. And then ask for a hat tip fee.
