What type of professionals make up the majority of your tax clients? Are they lawyers and engineers? How did I know? A recent study has found that these are the two professions most likely to seek out professional tax services, according to Accounting Today. On the other end of the scale, maintenance workers, food service professionals and members of the military are the least likely to hire tax professionals. This is the conclusion of a recent study from data analytics and behavioral communications firm Cambridge Analytica. 

The analysis also found that people aged 45 and older, men, and married people are more likely to use professional tax services, as are people who earn over $125,000 a year and those who live in cities. Presumably, then, a married man aged 45 years or older who makes $125,000 or more a year and lives in a city would be someone very likely to use professional tax services.
