TurboTax CPA Select
TurboTax CPA Select is designed to connect small and medium business owners who require someone to file their taxes with a CPA. In fact, the unveiling was done just in time for the new tax season. With this system, SMBs will know the amount of tax beforehand.
Brian Crofts, Group Product Manager, insists that With CPA Select, the company is focused on fulfilling their customers’ needs.
The new services will be introduced to its clients in two phases. First at the Small Business VCon on January 23. Second at the Intuit Innovation Gallery Walk on January 29. Intuit’s Mountain View headquarters will host the Gallery Walk from 4 – 8 p.m. PT. Most importantly, the company will also take this opportunity to showcase the company’s newest products and services and allow CEO and leaders to air their technology expectations.
Available CPAs have profiles; complete with pictures, star ratings, and client reviews. Notably, it also comes with educational and professional background information. When a CPA is selected, the user uploads and submits tax return from the previous year. Within 24 hours, the selected CPA responds to the request. Users accept or reject the estimate. If accepted, the tax return is prepared and filed.
To join the online service, complete the registration form or login using Facebook. Users are required to give consent for any documents they upload.
Crofts stated that “it’s an online service, but most importantly convenient, because it helps both individual and businesses find someone to file their taxes.” Customers can view a picture, read testimonials from previous customers and review the professionals’ history in one location.
More so, CPAs who are a part of the TurboTax service, connect their profile to their social media sites. The cost of the service starts at $89.95.
