Our methods of tax preparation make it simple for you to have your completed return as quickly and efficiently as possible. You can have an appointment with a qualifed tax preparer and in most cases leave with the finished return in hand. If you prefer to mail in your return, it will be processed and mailed back to you usually within 7 days. We accept e-mails and faxes of documents to help speed the preparation along, and we accept all major credit cards.
We process returns for individuals in 30 different states. It does not matter which state you live or work in, our knowledge and software can handle any situation. Unlike some tax preparation firms, our office is there for you all year. We stand behind all our work, and if you have a problem during the year, someone is available to answer your questions. In addition, our professionals are trained not only in tax preparation, but are accountants, not students, or part time workers who received little more than several weeks of tax training and then are holding themselves out as tax preparers.
Nor are we the high priced accounting firms that charge fees well beyond what the average tax payer can afford or is willing to pay. Yet, we offer you experienced, educated accountants well versed in the tax code who will answer any questions you have and help direct you towards tax savings. Why would you trust anyone else?
