As recently as 2009, most consumers would never have thought of finding a tax preparer online. They generally asked a friend or relative for a recommendation and simply used that person without completing any research. Since then, this has changed dramatically. Tax professionals all over the country are now seeing growth from new clients finding them online, whether through search results, banner advertising or review based websites. The internet has changed the way people do things in life and it is ever accelerating. Whether it’s for price, geography, service or something else, the simple fact is that people every day are changing their tax preparer and they are more and more finding that new preparer online.
Many tax professionals charge a fee based upon the complexity of the tax return. The complexity can be easily determined by the number and type of tax documents the client has. Without knowing very much about the client, other than this information, a fee estimate can easily be made.
Prosado brings these two thoughts together into one convenient website. Never before has a website for tax preparation given the consumer the power to drive down prices while preparers have the unlimited ability to obtain new business across the country.
Prosado offers customers a “one stop” website to make their search for a tax preparer easier while providing marketing for tax preparers, giving them unlimited opportunity to grow their business.
