We are not like other tax preparation firms. There are several things that separate us from the rest:
- First of all, we do not want just a transactional relationship but seek to develop a long-term relationship to help with all of your financial planning goals. Tax planning is one aspect of helping you achieve your long-term financial goals and seeing the overall financial picture can help us to provide the appropriate recommendations. Jumping around from one tax preparer to another makes it difficult for a preparer to identify trends and suggest tax savings strategies.
- Second, we have all-inclusive pricing so you don’t have to worry about additional fees once you have been quoted a price. No additional bank fees, filing fees, credit card fees, transmission fees, audit protection fees! Everything is included in your quoted price!
- Third, all of our fees already include audit protection and assistance (with the exception of 1040EZ) so if you receive an audit or inquiry letter from the IRS, you have someone available to assist you and walk you through the process. (Audit protection and assistance are not available for the 1040EZ forms).
- Fourth, numbers are our passion! Being detailed oriented and analyzing returns to locate additional deductions are credits are what we pride ourselves on! Not all tax companies enjoy the number crunching and data analysis like we do!
