Tax laws are a continuously changing facet of accounting. New rules and regulations happen frequently. New clients sometimes remark that “my former accountant never told me that.” In those cases, they probably just didn’t realize the new regulations changed and may have offered taxpayers new opportunities. But you expect that what you pay to get your taxes compiled should give you the most up-to-date knowledge of the rules, right? At Huberty, we keep our tax experts up to date on all aspects of change to make sure our clients’ accounts are always compliant.
The State of Wisconsin requires CPAs to complete 80 hours of Continued Professional Education (CPE) for each two-year period. WICPA members have the additional stipulation of completing a minimum of 20 hours of CPE annually. At Huberty, our policy requires all professional staff (whether they’re a CPA or not) to complete 40 hours of CPE annually in order to keep up to date with any and all changes to tax laws and requirements.
Huberty’s tax professionals also attend a variety of seminars, conferences, and webinars throughout the state and across the country, actively seeking education and instruction from top authorities. Our firm’s size allows us to send our professionals to CPE events that cover a broad range of topics. This initiative not only turns our advisors into subject-matter experts, but it also allows them to come back and share their knowledge with their colleagues, broadening our firm’s overall expertise as a reliable tax assistance provider.
Armed with the most up-to-date information, Huberty tax professionals can also do a better fob helping you with tax planning. Our planning meetings with clients often address the strategies they might employ to save or defer taxes. Some clients feel that our tax planning discussions are the most valuable part of their relationship with us. And many new clients express frustration at never having those types of discussions with their former accountant.
The benefits of this unique Huberty initiative translate directly to our clients. Our professionals attend CPE with our clients in mind, taking note of which updates affect their accounts and what advantages or planning strategies our firm can enact in light of what they’ve learned.
By choosing Huberty as a trusted tax partner, our clients can rest assured that their accounts are up to date and compliant with every tax law change. Our tax advisors not only enjoy attending CPE events, but they return knowing that our team is consistently ahead of the curve of tax law changes and that our clients’ accounts are compliant. It’s why Huberty is your trusted tax partner!
