Following hard on the heels of a busy holiday season comes our favorite time of year... Tax Season!
Employers are gearing up, preparing paperwork. And many taxpayers are groaning at the thought of not only sorting out all their receipts and corralling all that paperwork, but the idea of preparing their return themselves, and potential check they'll be sending to the IRS.

PS - It's also a good idea to see if the person you're proposing to do business with has had any disciplinary action taken against them by the Department of Regulatory Agencies. You can find the link to DORA for the State of Colorado here.
