New to the US, don't know how to search for assistance with personal finance / taxes
Some background: My wife and I are in the process of moving to the US, for her career prospects as an animator. She is an American citizen through her parents, but has spent her entire life (up to this point) in Israel. My current status is as a tourist, until my green card application is processed.
Taxes (and personal finance in general) in Israel are straightforward affairs. You usually don't need to do anything manually, unless you're running a business. In the States, not so much. So we're looking for someone to help us out with taxes and personal finance. Our current issue is transferring money from our Israeli bank account to the US one, but there'll be more in the future.
Thing is, I don't even know what I should be looking for
. Should I be looking for a bookkeeper? An Accountant? A CPA? Hell, I don't even know what those titles actually mean - they're just words I've picked up. And how would I go about searching for whoever it is I need to be searching for?
I'm really lost here, and any help would be greatly appreciated.
