Our ability to provide timely and convenient service to the client is due to our major investment in computer hardware, software and the knowledge and training of our staff members. Although our clients spend a short amount of time being interviewed, the various staff involved collectively devote on average 5 1/2 to 7 1/2 hours to complete the finalizing and filing of each tax return processed through this office.
