Who is Xpitax?
Xpitax is a company based in the U.S. that was founded by a CPA who wanted to find a way to enhance tax season for CPA’s. Xpitax has a hosting facility in the U.S. and uses trained professionals with significant tax preparation experience.
Is my information safe?
Xpitax has made a significant investment in building a state-of-the-art infrastructure for our outsourcing operations, to ensure the highest level of reliability, performance, and security available. Our India facility was designed expressly for outsourcing tax and accounting compliance work, and therefore has stringent physical and network security measures in place to safeguard sensitive client data. Additionally, Xpitax has designed a fully redundant network infrastructure at a secure Boston area datacenter, with off-site backup and recovery capabilities at a similar facility in North Carolina.
Who will be responsible for my tax return?
Our firm and the CPAs you have always worked with are responsible for your tax return.
Are the overseas accountants knowledgeable about U.S. tax laws?
Using a third-party vendor gives us access to qualified and skilled professionals overseas. They are highly trained and meet or exceed the quality of preparation that is done in the “back office” of most CPA firms. Through Xpitax, they attend a rigorous training program developed by a U.S. based CPA firm that covers U.S. tax law and various tax software applications.
How does the process work?
You will continue to provide us with your tax organizer and other applicable information; our firm will scan your documents and upload the file to a secure server hosted in the U.S. The teams overseas use “dumb” terminals to access the tax information file and prepare the tax return in an all paperless environment. When the tax return is complete, our firm will be notified through a secure delivery system. We will then be able to make any final adjustments to your return and deliver it to you as soon as possible.
Why does your firm use a third-party vendor to work on tax returns?
Our firm processes hundreds of returns and we may utilize a third party to assist us in getting your completed tax return back to you as quickly as possible as the turnaround time is quicker using the third-party vendor. Many firms including the BIG four have been moving their process overseas for many years to improve client service and provide employees a higher quality of life during busy season.
