Q: How Much do you Charge?
A: This is not a one size fits all answer, since the price is determined by many factors which include the tax forms required and the time required to get the information needed to complete your returns.
Usually we charge based on the form(s) that will be used to file your taxes and the sections we need to complete on that particular form. Returning clients can rest assured that we strive to ensure that whatever amount you paid the previous year we will attempt to keep that amount the same, even if we have to add additional sections/forms.
Q: Do you efile my taxes and is there an extra charge to efile?
A: We do efile your taxes because it is a better for the tax paryer since they can be submitted quicker and your refund (if you are due to receive one) can be processed faster. In addition errors are less likely to occur when we efile than if a paper submission is done.
No, we do not charge for efiling.
Q: Is your office open year round to answer questions or get help?

Q: What are the benefits to filing early?
A: One of the major benefits to filing early is getting your refund back quicker. In addition to getting your tax refund sooner, when you file early you have a better chance of catching any issues that may be present with your return. If there are forms you need and questions that need to be answered you have time to get this complete when you file early as opposed to waiting to the last minute.
If you are not expecting a refund then you want to make sure that you do not wait until the end before filing as well. You have to remember accountants are usually booked with other clients closer to the filing deadline so if you wait too long or if you wait until the last minute then you may pay more for filing.
