Tax Season Hiring: Keeping the Bad Apples Out

Hopefully you are taking some time to enjoy your holiday season. No doubt, you are already making some preparations for the busy season ahead.

As you wrap up 2016 and brace yourself for the months to come, you may be looking to hire for the busy season.
