An accountant can help you save money. Look at it this way – your accountant probably knows more about you than even your mother at this point! He or she can help you devise strategies to hide money from yourself, such as automatic payroll deductions into a brokerage or savings account, or over-withholding on your pay. An accountant can also help you to become wealthy. One of the reasons rich people have so much money is because they know the “ins and outs” of the tax system and have skilled professionals to help them make educated decisions. You should, too.
