NEW YORK, March 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for tax season, CPAdirectory.com announces the launch of ASK A CPA, a free iPhone and iPad app designed to help consumers, businesses, and accounting and tax professionals.
Featuring the answers to more than 2,500 tax and accounting questions, users of the app can simply choose a category and search for the answer to their question in the CPA archive. If unable to find the answer to a question, users have the option to enter their question to be sent directly to a local CPA who will answer it for free within 24 hours. The question and its answer will then be added to the robust CPA archive for future inquiries. Additionally, those who have more specific tax or accounting needs can use the app to "Find a CPA" by zip code.
Michael Rosedale, founder and president of CPAdirectory.com, says "ASK A CPA" was created to make the tax preparation process easier while helping people save on their taxes and teaching them about the hundreds of deductions and credits taxpayers may not even know exist. Rosedale, a CPA who has been helping individuals and small business clients minimize their tax liabilities for the past 25 years, believes what sets "ASK A CPA" apart from all other tax or accounting apps is the large quantity of easy-to-navigate tax information and the ability for users to be put in direct contact with local CPAs for free answers.
"There is always a lot of confusion when it comes to filing taxes and many small businesses and individuals have the same unanswered questions year after year," said Rosedale. "We created 'ASK A CPA' to give users free access to the answers of the most commonly asked questions all year long, as well as the option to get direct answers from local CPAs within 24 hours for free."
According to Rosedale, ASK A CPA is also a great tool for CPAs looking to grow their tax and small business practice as the app will send them leads from individuals and businesses with tax questions in their region. "ASK A CPA" is available for free download and use for iPhones and iPads from the Apple App store. For additional information about the "ASK A CPA" app, individuals, businesses, students and CPAs should visit www.askacpa.pro or www.askacpa.mobi on their iPhone or iPad.
