Who does your taxes?

We have a parent who is a CPA complete our tax return. It is a win-win situation all around as she does not have time for the more "traditional" volunteer opportunities and we have someone knowledgeable to complete the tax return.

I've been doing ours for a few years -- had to file 3 back-years when I started as treasurer, now it's old hat. Another PTO in the district said they paid $450 to have theirs done. Yikes! Yet another has a treasurer who works for a tax firm.

We do our own. This year, my group had less than $25,000 so got to file the 990N, which just couldn't be easier. It's about 10 questions, none really financial except "did you make less than $25K?" (changing to $50K next year).

But with a previous group, we filed the 990N. It takes a bit more work to slice and dice your numbers the way the IRS needs it.

If you had a CPE/accountant volunteer that would be great, but we never had. Really, it just takes some attention to detail.

It's tax season for most of us -- 3 1/2 months after the close of our fiscal year over the summer. I'm just curious: how many of you do your own taxes? Does the treasurer do them? Is that person an accountant by trade? Or do you pay an outside accountant?
