“Dear PoPville,

My husband and I just got married this year. We also bought a condo together this year and did some renovations on it. Additionally, I have significant student loans and I am currently participating in the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program and making income-based payments. All of this is a long way of saying that we think this is finally the year where seeing a tax professional is probably worthwhile, since we’re not sure Turbotax can walk us through our best options here. Do you or might any of your readers have recommendations for a tax professional for us to go see? Our coworkers and friends mostly seem to use Turbotax or do their taxes themselves, but especially with my student loan situation (which presents a question of whether it’s better to file jointly or married filing separately) we feel like a professional would really help but we don’t know where to start in finding someone good.”
