I don't know of a government that does not tax its citizens. Many people like to debate about who should be paying and how much, alas that is not the concern of the tax preparer.
The tax preparer is only concerned with making sure you deduct what it cost you to make your money...
Unfortunately, many people mistakenly believe all CPAs do Tax Preparation when this is not the case. CPAs have their work cut out for them keeping up with income and expenditures for businesses and do not specialize in tax law nor tax preparation! Some DO prepare, but do not expect them to be better at it than seasoned tax preparers. If you are not incorporated, nor have publicly traded stock, you probably don't need a CPA. Corporations submitting "audited books" are REQUIRED to have them signed by a CPA. Sole proprietors will fare better and cheaper with a Tax Pro. Many CPA firms have Tax Pros working for them...
The Tax Preparation industry exists because so many people do not know how to prepare their own taxes.
The Media shot smoke and mirrors into the general public about the POTUS elect's tax returns.
Why didn't he pay taxes?
Why does anyone who files their tax return not pay?
Because with their deductions, credits, and adjustments,
THEY DON'T OWE ANY!!!
