Online CPA in Illinois

Traditionally, a visit with a CPA required gathering your documents, receipts, statements, spreadsheets and lists, and schlepping them all to an in-person meeting at your CPA's office. Hours later, after you've gone through all of your information with her, she would prepare your tax documents for filing, charge you a hefty fee, then file your taxes. If you were lucky, her services would help you get a tax refund from the IRS that would be greater than the amount you paid for her services. But it doesn't have to be that way. As with so many services in this age of digital tools and online resources, it should come as no surprise that consulting with an expert tax CPA, or Certified Public Accountant, in states like Illinois is now possible without ever leaving your home. FlyFin's Ask a CPA tool gives you unlimited access, at no cost, to a team of licensed tax professionals with a combined 100+ years of experience. Just enter your name and email address, and ask a CPA any question, from how to fill out a tax form, to how to find the hundreds of deductions available to you. FlyFin CPAs have deep knowledge of the tax system in Illinois, including expertise in taxes for self-employed taxpayers such as nurses, delivery drivers and many more, as well as taxes for business structures such as LLCs, S-Corps, sole proprietorships and partnerships.
