I know it's still a couple months away. There's no need to panic just yet, but I ran across a really good article on tax returns.
Darwins Money over at Wise Bread posted an article about the information your tax preparer should tell you. These are great tips, and you should absolutely ask this information before you get started. Not only will it help prepare you, it will also serve as a good list when interviewing those potential preparers.
These are the people who will be representing your finances to the government, so it's a good idea to be sure they know what they're doing. Do you have any other tips, or other questions you should ask? Let us know in the comments.
