A CPA or accountant should be contacted prior to incorporating your business or filing an LLC certificate of formation to discuss the best entity choice with regard to personal income taxes and to determine tax benefits from different entity choices.

After forming a corporation or an LLC, a CPA or accountant will help ensure that you are filing all necessary forms and meeting all IRS requirements for your entity.

A CPA or accountant should be contacted at least annually to stay current on your entity and income tax issues and to file accurate tax returns.
