The Best Tax Preparers in Harford County MD Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire

The state of Maryland does not require tax preparers in Harford County MD to qualify for a license but Maryland does require tax preparers to be registered by the state.  Only as of January 1 2016 does registration require passing any kind of comptency exam. Further, the state doesn't require that tax return preparers in Harford County MD have professional liability insurance (such as Errors & Omissions) to reimburse you in the event of loss due to error or negligence.

But even the Maryland state registration is no guarantee that any particular tax preparer in Harford County MD is doing business ethically, is providing value, or satisfying clients.

This makes it all the more significant that all tax return preparers in Harford County MD who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous clients to verify high satisfaction with their tax return preparation, verified liability insurance, verified state registration, best business practices, good complaint record, sufficient length of time in business, and more.
