Hi @Kay Li, make sure to reach out to an investor savvy CPA/Accountant, there are over 20+ enlisted here in Biggerpockets. Location is not an issue as most of them remotely assist RE clients with their tax planning and accounting. 

Please feel free to reach out with your inquiries. 

Best, Fulton

Hey @Kay Li

Given we are accountants, we cannot promote our services on BP as its against the rules.

To help in your search:

be sure to find an accountant who is willing to grow with you, and is not too high priced fee-wise. Not too low either, you don't want to go with someone who is just focused on price as this is a quality of a not-so-great accountant. Accountants are in such demand, that the best are not even accepting clients half the time.

The other problem I see often with accountants on here is that they specialize in larger investors, and have really high prices when you as a smaller investor do not need all the bells and whistles.

Another thing I see is folks thinking they need to have a tax professional in their state. We as a firm have investors working with us who have rental properties all over the US big and small.

Finding a real estate-focused tax professional and one who can help with advisory and grow with you would be my suggestion to focus your efforts on finding. Best of luck in your search!

Your BP Profile mentions that you brought a property in 2024.
Are you engaging an accountant with help for 2023 or 2024?

If it is for 2024 and going forward, you will have a higher pool of accountants to interview after April 15.

Congrats on the purchase and good luck in your search for an accountant!

Are you looking for accounting or tax help? There is a shortage of accountants and many firms are not taking any more clients. Any complicating factor is that many accountants do not specialize in real estate and may not be the best fit for what you are looking for. There are a number of accountants that post on BiggerPockets.

 This is very true 😅 We are at 95% capacity and a lot of other firm owners I know are full completely for the rest of the year... send us more staff please!
