How much does it cost to have you prepare our tax returns?
Our fees are based on the complexity of your tax returns. A client who has 7 rental properties and a farm will cost more than someone who does not. Our average individual tax return cost $350. The average corporate tax return cost $760. We will give an estimate at the time of your appointment based on your personal tax situation.
Can I send my tax information electronically?
Yes. We have clients who live all over the globe. Most of our clients use Dropbox. They scan their documents into a folder and then share it with the CPA they are working with.
I know I'm going to owe this year. What if I don't have the money to pay my income taxes?
The IRS will set up payment plans! The important thing is to file. Extensions are for additional amount of time, it does not extend the amount of time you have to pay.
I've never used a CPA before. What is the process?
Welcome! We start with an interview. It takes about 30 minutes and we discuss prior year tax returns, current year tax info, and any other issues you might be concerned about. Next, we prepare the tax return and it goes through a quality control check. When the return is finalized we give you call for pick up or portal upload. Taxpayers must sign an 8879 & engagement letter before we can electronically file the return. Once these documents are signed we e-file for you and send you notification when the return has been accepted. If you owe we will give you a voucher or a link to pay your income taxes. All payments are due by April 18th. Tax preparation fees are due when you pick up the tax return. All this takes about 5 days if we have all of your tax documents!
