What is a CPA and Why Do You Need One?
A CPA is a professional accountant who has completed at least 150 semester hours of college education and passed a 16-hour, four part exam to obtain a license in order to offer their services to the public. This process helps insure that only qualified individuals become licensed in the United States as a certified public accountant (CPA). In addition, CPA’s must complete an average of 40 additional hours of continuing education every year to maintain their license.
Most people think that CPA’s only prepare tax returns. However, they also provide tax planning services, assistance in dealing with the Internal Revenue Service or state taxing authority, bookkeeping services, compilation and review of financial statements, and payroll preparation. Some of these services may be offered by others but most of them do not have the education, knowledge, and
expertise of a CPA. This is why you should consider Tulsa CPA Terry Mosley for your accounting and tax preparation needs.
