Hi All!

I _really_ need an advice. The situation:

- my company is incorporated in the United States (state Louisiana)
- none of the shareholders is a citizen of the US
- moreover, none of them is a resident of the US
- Everything was going smoothly till the moment I started receiving piles of different Tax forms from IRS. Last year we had a partner in the US who was taking care of all taxes. Now he is gone and we _urgently_ need to find a soltuion - a person who will be able to help us file all this sutff.

The question: could you tell me / hint me / show the directioin in which to look for help, please? I don't even know if it a 'public accountant' or somebody else. I don't know where to start. I can't even fill in the forms myself as most of the terms in these forms are just not familiar to me.

Any help with this will be greately appreciated.

Post here or contact me on ICQ 1722549

A good accountant is like having an angel at your side to guide and protect you. To do business without one is like stepping out of the house without your clothes.

I'm pretty sure you must have an agent in the state of incorporation. That agent receives all mail for your company that ever comes to the department of state along with other important stuff.

There are plenty of companies that specialize in this sort of thing. They will act as your agent for something like $150/year. After you get an agent, then find an accountant.

Yes, we've got an agent in Louisiana and I've already sent him an inquiry about such an accountant.

Some other questions are:
- is Intuit TurboTax Business software a solution?
- have you used it before?
- is it good/simple/handy?
- can a university degree person ace it and input enough info for all the required forms to be prepared for filing?

I don't know.
I just use quickbooks to get my totals and bring all that stuff to an accountant. After that, he tells me what I can and cannot write off. And then, he files the stuff.

You can call any of the big firms like hrblock and ask them for assistance. I'm sure they handle all kinds of cases.
