Here are some smart ways to prepare your taxes if you are a medical professional:

  1. Through an Attorney

    Attorneys, after receiving their degree in law from a reputable institution receive their licenses from the state bar. This empowers them to render a wide range of legal services, including tax planning and preparation. However, it is important you work with those with expertise in Medical Tax Service.

  2. Through a Certified Public Accountant (CPA)

    CPAs receive their licenses from the State boards of accountancy of their respective state. Their license empowers them to function as a tax preparer, provided they have passed the CPA examination. They must have also gained a degree from a reputable institution to qualify as a CPA. Before being awarded their licenses, they meet all ethical requirements, which they will have to maintain to keep their licenses. However, not all CPAs have expertise in preparing tax returns for medical professionals. Ensure you work with those with a proven track record.

  3. Online Preparation

    The internet has made so many things possible now, with tax preparation being one of them. While some online preparation services are expensive, others are quite cheap. But ensure you ask the right set of questions to avoid undue headaches. You can email us or fax us from anywhere, and we can professionally prepare your tax returns. Call us today at 877-788-2937.

They will first have to pass all designated examinations before being awarded their license. Aside meeting all ethical requirements, enrolled agents are mandated to complete 72 hours of training within every 3 years interval.

Mike Habib - Thank you for being so professional and honest and taking care of my brothers IRS situation. We are so relieved it is over and the offer in compromise process went just as you said. Mike is very professional and will give you honest answers to the OIC process and you can really trust him. You won't be sorry you chose him! Joe and Deborah V.
Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation! Marcie R.
Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied! Marshall W.
I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends. Nancy & Sal V.
