Our request is for a CPA (preferably one with experience working with non-profits) to organize, file and audit our 990 Tax returns. We have not generated a great deal of revenue yet and we have not yet produced very high budgets so the process will be fairly simple and straight forward. We just want everything done correctly and by a certified licensed professional. We also want to make sure that we are exercising all of the practices that make our book keeping most efficient and sustainable for years to come.
