Time to file taxes is coming up next month already. If the thought of doing your taxes make you cringe, then think about a tax 'con artist' ripping you off.
The IRS suggests you pick a tax preparer the same way you choose a doctor or a lawyer. Maybe start with a word of mouth reference from a trusted friend or family member.
Also, check that person's credentials and inquire about their training before turning over all your sensitive information.
And one IRS investigator says if the preparer promises you a higher refund than "quote" anyone else.- beware.
And finally, always review your tax return.
