2. How long has the Tax Professional been in the business of tax preparation?

3. Do you have the knowledge and experience to handle my specific tax situation?

4. What are your professional fees? Do you normally ask for a retainer?

5. Do you outsource any of your work? If so, where is the work being done and have all the privacy issues being taken care of?
