With the deadline to file your taxes just around the corner, Patch wanted to help any procrastinating readers out there find an accountant to handle their returns at this late hour.
We asked readers throughout the state which accountant or tax service is the best bet for the biggest return — or at least a dependable tax preparer who won't get you into hot water with the IRS. After five days of voting, the winners are in. Check out which tax services Patch readers think are the best of the best and support your personal favorite in the comments section below.
