By visiting ExpertBids.com/tax, businesses can receive pricing proposals from tax accountants, along with the accountant’s profile and past client reviews.
Businesses who need a tax accountant can anonymously answer a series of questions regarding their business. Then tax accountants in the ExpertBids network will be notified and can send proposals regarding their fees to complete the 2012 return. Each proposal will contain information regarding how much the accountant will charge, the services they can provide and the accountant's profile. In addition, each profile contains all of the accountant’s credentials, educational information, contact information and past client reviews.
The service is free for businesses seeking proposals, while accountants pay $29 a month to create a profile and receive qualified leads. Accountants can then send an unlimited number of proposals, which are not visible to anyone except the recipient.
“We are not trying to create a race to the bottom regarding the price of a tax accountant,” said ExpertBids founder Nick Cronin. “Rather we are trying to create a more transparent system where businesses can quickly and easily get all the information they need to find and hire the right tax accountant.”
