So you decide to seek professional help, but don’t know how and who to approach. You seek this professional help through referrers and you find three possible sources for help as follows:

H & R Block, an accountant with local education, or a CPA from the Philippines who has learned to prepare income tax returns but has no formal schooling in the USA, or a CPA licensed to practice in the State where you work as a Nurse. Now you are baffled as to who to choose.
