The Latino market for Tax Preparation could be big for Tax Preparers who go about entering it correctly, according to Gustavo A Viera, Accountant, executive director of the Miami Tax Preparation.

In our interview with him, Gustavo A Viera, Accountant discussed the overall picture of the growing Latino market for Tax Preparation, including the burgeoning Hispanic population in the U.S. and how the IRS and other regulators must reach out to this population.

He added that potential clients in the Latino market are used to finding many different professional services under one roof, and tend to transfer trust gained by one professional to others that professionals might work with.

“Most mainstream Americans would never consider this kind of shopping,” Gustavo A Viera, Accountant said. “The downside to this cultural outlook is that no one can be a master of all trades, but often the Latino consumer trusts the professional and will keep returning even if they are paying penalties and interest as a result of the professional’s errors. ‘Oh, by the way, I can also prepare your tax return!’ ‘Obviously, you did a great job on my insurance, so you’ll do a great job with my taxes!’”

He does believe, however, that the Tax Preparation Business at large will recognize the potential of this market in another two to three years. (Some vendors, including H&R Block, have recently announced initiatives for the Latino market.)

He also offered tips for preparers looking to reach out to this burgeoning market:

• Talk to them about the long term. If they’re here undocumented and have children who were born here, the idea is to tell the client, ‘You’re here in this country for the long haul. Your plan is not to be deported for tax fraud!” Gustavo A Viera, Accountant said.

• Offer multiple services, but not necessarily by yourself. Partner with a notary public, insurance agent, and/or travel agent. While acknowledging that many services, such as booking travel, have migrated to the Internet in recent years, “A lot of these taxpayers are not Internet-savvy,” he said. “They’re going online and buying something with a credit card, that’s not going to happen,” Gustavo A Viera, Accountant said, adding, “But their children will be doing it.”

• Be fluent in Spanish. This would seem obvious, but overlooking it in even the slightest way can cost you business.

• Target your marketing. Use very targeted direct mail, and “good old-fashioned handshaking,” he said. “Attend Hispanic community events, and reach out to your local Hispanic chamber of commerce and rotaries.”

Gustavo A Viera, Accountant works both to better prospects for Latino tax preparers and to educate all preparers on the Latino market. The firm has been teaching Tax Preparation in Miami since 1983 as a Florida Tax Education Council vendor and IRS-approved Accountant provider for EA’s since November 2006. It has some 5,000 members and offers a free e-mail newsletter.
