💎This Week's Sponsor
Hi there! What Lav Mic are you using?
I’m currently using the Rode Lav Go. Which is marked way down at the moment for some reason.
What are some tax planning software/tools that you use for individual tax clients?
We run all our planners through the Thomson Reuters app. I have a hard time trusting anything that isn’t a full blown tax software. Then I put together a video explainer so they can actually make sense of the output
Others here use @Holistiplan, @corveetax and @TaxplanIq
Upsides of my approach: Highest level of technical accuracy, mitigating risk in that regard.
Downsides: Doesn’t do a good job of pointing out *savings like other apps do, output is hideous.
I am in the beginning of starting my own cpa and I am interested in the way you operate yours. I tired watching your videos but get lost on some of things because I come from a paper heavy and I want leverage technology in my firm.
I’d say watch this one to give you a high level understanding of cloud technology. Otherwise look for folks at a similar stage of the journey to yourself and start sharing ideas!
