Tax time is often the most difficult time of the year for small businesses and many business owners choose this time to find an accountant to help them prepare their tax returns. But knowing whether the accountant you've selected is the right one for your company can be difficult... and can turn what you hoped to be a great move forward into a financial nightmare.

Jim Bourke will discuss how to identify your next CPA and some of the traits and characteristics that are a must. In addition, Jim will discuss five things that your CPA may not tell you, but that you should be aware of!




The presentation will last approximately 40 minutes during which you can post questions. Jim will address questions after the presentation and help you to make your best choice (or to know if you've already made the right choice). Participants will be able to view the recorded presentation later in case you may have missed any important details.
