Allow approximately 7 to 10 business days for processing. Preparer will call to review tax return, ask questions and answer any questions BEFORE return is finished. Tax Papers/Tax Return copies are returned by mail or secure encrypted email, (requires a “password”). Return is NOT FILED until Client returns SIGNED Efile authorization form (IRS Form 8879) to Preparer.

Drop Off with Exit interview

Drop off as above. When return is almost done, Preparer will contact for appointment.

In Person Appointment

Please stay home if you are ill or experiencing fever, shortness of breath or cough. If concerned about cross contamination from other clients can wait in car or in reception area until your appointment time.

New Clients

Telephone procedure: While Preparer is in conference during tax season, calls are forwarded to an answering service. Answering service personnel are not tax professionals. Messages are returned between appointments, usually same day.

Individual Taxes: Accepting new clients as work allows. Please provide: copy of PRIOR YEAR tax return, tax papers, and for direct deposit, bank routing and account number. When return is finished, Preparer will request additional info required to electronically file tax return.

Business taxes: Need to make appointment before tax season for tax season on boarding. Too much information to process at once, we want to get to know your business and help you capture every deduction you qualify for.

We will not schedule new non business clients during the last two weeks of tax season (anticipated to be April 1–April 15).

Our Humble Beginnings & Mission

One of my first clients was my Mom. A well known firm had prepared her taxes. Deductions were missed and the preparation fee was unaffordable. That was over 20 years ago. Today, I still advise and prepare taxes for people just like Mom. People who don’t understand taxes, feel they can’t afford a tax professional and need help. How can we help you today?
