I had a self employment job kind of land in my lap (I'm taking care of a friends grandfather). And so now I need to file as self employed.
I guess I need to find a CPA (certified public accountant?) and there's a ton in the area. I'm hoping to pay my taxes, maybe claim a few things, and hopefully toss some money into like.. a retirement or maybe a LLC.
Is there a particular type I should look for? Certain certifications? A lot of their websites don't seem to say too much, but I'm also not hugely sure what kind of questions I should be asking, or the ballpark price I should be looking at paying for these services.
I live in PA, work in DE if it matters. I feel completely in the dark.
