Robert A. Wilson, Esq.
Glenshaw, PA 15116
I am responding to an advertisement on Craigslist for a tax accountant/return preparer/program coordinator. I have prepared income tax returns for at least thirty years in my law practice together with inheritance and estate tax returns and estate planning for at least twenty years. I also owned a Jackson Hewitt franchise for one season.
I am a lawyer from the North Hills of Pittsburgh in the latter part of a career looking to remain active. Just finished a tax gig using Intuit Pro Series tax software, but whether it is ProSeries, Lacerte, One Tax or other brand software, all has to be approved by the IRS to assure if the same information is put in, the end result should be within a dollar or two.
