How to Decide between an Accountant vs. Turbo Tax

Accountants vs. Turbo Tax

We currently live in a technology driven world, and because of this we often rely so heavily on technology that we fail to realize that working with humans on a day to day basis is very important. Software developers have been doing everything to eliminate the need for an accountant or CPA, and now thanks to modern software advancements many have been falsely led to believe that Turbo Tax can solve all of their accounting needs.

Below are a few reasons why you should hire an accountant instead of relying on Turbo Tax:

To Avoid Computer Errors

Even though modern technology continues to change and shape lives, it is still imperfect. When using software to do accounting or tax functions, you run the risk of encountering computer errors. While humans have been known to make mistakes, you increase your chance of making even more mistakes when you rely on technology more than you rely on an actual person.

To Get Real Time Advice

No one can give you real time advice like an accountant can. Instead of using Turbo Tax and then later hiring an accountant, consider hiring an accountant right now. An accountant can help you with questions or concerns as they arise, but Turbo Tax cannot.

To Assist You with Predictions

How well do you predict your company’s successes? Probably not too well. Because of this, it’s important that you have a CPA or accountant readily able to process information to give you an adequate forecast of your business’s future.

To Help You Grow Your Team

As much as many people may love Turbo Tax, in all reality the software cannot help your team grow. An accountant can give you the services offered by Turbo Tax and also give you the insights needed to actually grow and develop your company.
