Um, are not tax attorney and tax preparer separate jobs? If I were going to try to set myself up as a corporation, or if I had to understand what a sole proprietorship is (I don't, whew), then I'd be talking to the lawyer. If it were just a case of a complicated return for an individual, then the tax preparer is probably what you want, because he or she knows about every line of your 1040, whereas the lawyer is sort of a big-picture guy.You might think about "Enrolled Agents." These are accountants who have passed examinations that allow them to represent clients in front of the IRS. (That's different from the guy from H&R Block, who will come along with you but can only tell them what they, the tax preparer, did.) I know Roy=TMFTaxes is an EA. Phil=TMFExRO might be.
