CHICAGO, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Taxes are complicated, but finding a trusted tax professional doesn't have to be. The Illinois CPA Society has a free, easy-to-use online "Find a CPA" directory that allows individuals, businesses and not-for-profit organizations to do a simple search through a database of member CPAs. Your search can be narrowed down by location, the type of services needed, industries served and language preference. There's even a "Quick Search" to find a CPA who prepares individual income tax returns or one who works with non-profit organizations. The "Find a CPA" Directory section also includes helpful information on how to choose and use a CPA.
As the end of the year grows closer, so does the uncertainty surrounding the "fiscal cliff" and tax planning for the future. A wide array of tax credits and cuts, which were mostly enacted during President Bush's administration, are set expire December 31, 2012 unless Congress takes action soon. Although not a done deal, the scheduled expiration of these credits and breaks could wreak havoc on your finances. Planning is imperative and working with a CPA can help you better understand your available options for preparation.
To search the free "Find a CPA" directory, go to www.icpas.org or contact Michele Haryasz, the Society's Director of Knowledge Management at 800-993-0407, ext. 287 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
