Tax Preparation

Preparing your own income tax return can be a task that leaves you with more questions than answers. According to a study released by the US Government's General Accounting Office last year, most taxpayers (77% of 71 million taxpayers) believe they benefited from using a professional tax preparer.

Whether we like it or not, today's tax laws are so complicated that filing a relatively simple return can be confusing. It is just too easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled. Even if you use a computer software program there's no substitute for the assistance of an experienced tax professional.

Here's what you get...

Books a Mess: No Problem!

If you own a small business and haven't kept up your bookkeeping, don't worry. We can help you. We'll refer you to a solid bookkeeper who we trust and with whom we have worked over the years. If you already have a bookkeeper or you are preparing your own books, that's great. Prior to preparing your taxes, however, we may offer suggested changes to your entries.

It's very important to have a clean set of books before you come in for your tax return appointment so please let us know if you need help. We will refer you to a bookkeeper who can assist you. Once your accounting records are in order, we will prepare a full Schedule C or other business entity return, as well as your personal income tax returns. Then we'll help you set up an easy system that allows you to keep your books in tip-top shape next year.

 You worked tirelessly taking me through a very difficult audit; then, pieced together the accounting puzzle my former business partner left behind. I would not have been able to continue operating my insurance agency without you.
