What do we cost?

Taxpayers considering hiring professionals to provide Tax Preparation Service often focus on the Cost. While this is a natural concern, other factors should be considered. Our knowledge of tax laws demonstrates results that save our clients more money than other offices. Our clients either experience larger refunds or lower tax bills that far exceed our invoice in contrast to the prior preparer. Example: Would you rather pay a preparer $250 and have a tax bill that is higher by $1,500; or realize a lower tax bill to the governments totaling $1,500, and you pay the preparer $500. You gain $1,250 in your pocket! 

Our clients usually benefit by far more than the possible cost increase in services. When the Tax Professional's service benefits your results, that office is providing a better service and has earned a compensation higher than the deficient office. The selection of the Tax Preparer Office will determine the quality of the results experienced.
