Tax Preparation Services for Houston Individuals and Businesses
No matter how complex your tax situation is, tax preparation services can expedite the tax filing process while avoiding any inaccuracies. Today’s Internal Revenue Code is characterized by its complexity, to the point that even simple returns are often anything but. It’s easy for taxpayers to miss out on deductions or credits to which they are owed, and the difference could be thousands of dollars.
Whether you’re filing as an individual or a married couple, whether you own a business or not – a tax preparation expert can optimize your tax return.

The CPA Advantage for Preparing Your Taxes
Tax preparation and tax compliance go hand in hand. For business entities, compliance is a critical part of organizational maintenance. As such, businesses place a great deal of trust in their tax preparer when relying on them for compliance purposes.
If tax compliance is a primary concern for your organization – as it should be – working with a CPA will provide maximum peace of mind. Here’s why a certified public accountant is your best bet to ensure proper tax preparation:
Comprehensive representation rights -
Only some tax preparation professionals are permitted to represent clients in this fashion. CPAs, along with enrolled agents and attorneys, are the only professionals who have unlimited representation rights before the IRS. They can represent their clients during audits, payment or collection issues, and during an appeal. CPAs can even represent clients that they did not prepare taxes for.
All other tax preparation professionals have only limited representation rights. They can only represent taxpayers whose taxes they have prepared, and they can only represent their client in certain circumstances. For example, tax preparers with limited representation rights may not attest for their client on collection issues or appeals.
By working with a CPA, your organization will have a tax expert it can call on in its communications with the IRS. And if your CPA also prepared your company’s taxes, they will be able to attest to your filing documentation with confidence.
Deeper level of tax expertise -
CPAs tend to be excellent networkers, too, and many have contacts inside the IRS or with other specialists who can provide tax-related answers when needed. When a taxpayer hires a CPA for their preparation services, they’re tapping into an entire field of tax experts.
CPAs are accounting and tax experts, capable of far more than just preparing and filing forms. They can also help plan future tax years for your organization, utilizing concepts like exemptions, expenses, deductions, and other tax-saving instruments to reduce its overall tax burden.
CPAs are also masters at detecting fraud and generally tightening up a company’s accounting oversight. If there are blind spots in your company’s accounting practices, it could be bleeding money through fraudulent activity. A reputable CPA can square a company’s accounting records with available assets to identify mismatches and identify the source of any fraud.
This same approach can also be used for audit preparedness, which CPAs are also qualified to oversee. During audit readiness services, the CPA will stress test the organization’s accounting procedures to verify that they are ready for IRS scrutiny. By shoring up any weaknesses, a CPA can save their clients from making extremely costly tax compliance mistakes.
Evident Pros guarantees filing speed and accuracy
Professional tax preparation frees up taxpayers to focus on other, more important things. It allows business owners to rededicate their time toward operations, while ensuring tax compliance is taken care of. And an expert tax preparer – one with CPA credentials – can provide ongoing representation for their clients should communication with the IRS be necessary.
Evident Pros’ team of CPAs and tax attorneys can also provide comprehensive tax preparation services like these. No matter your filing status, your asset portfolio or future tax goals, Evident Pros has the answers to your tax preparation concerns.
