Tax preparer / accountant: familiar with landlord issues
We are first-time landlords (rented our backyard cottage after building one), and are seeking recommendations for a smart, knowledgeable, experienced and hopefully fast person to help with our taxes in this new chapter of our lives. We’re retired, so no “big deal” financial issues or amounts, but are completely inexperienced at what can & can’t be deducted re: costs to build, maintain, etc.; very small landlords! (The readings we’ve done left us with almost more questions than answers). If you’ve used such a person for your taxes now that you’re a landlord, would you recommend them? What was their charge? Thanks for your recommendations.
