You need to find an actual CPA firm rather than H&R Block or a similar tax preparation franchise.

Yes, agreed, but you get what you pay for.

You need a knowledge tax advisor like myself. I do Tax Preparation and Advisory and can certainly help you navigate US tax requirements. DM if you would like to connect.

Going through C and F on a new bar. I disclosed many things and they seem to care about the things I thought they would care least about. Ie a action where I was the victim of a hit and run vs when I was a kid and arrested... Who has any advice for this? They're also asking for things a month apart ie asks questions waits a month then asks questions about more things. I didn't have that first time around.
