We represent taxpayers if they are audited.

We prepare and file tax returns for businesses, non-profits, trusts and individuals. We provide tax planning and assist with tax problems. We pride ourselves on being very efficient, affordable and of course, discrete. In the review process, our Electronic Return Originator checks the returns for input accuracy, data integrity and correctness. The data keyed by the agent is compared to the digital copies of the source documents used in preparation.

Just Because Someone You Know Did it on their taxes, doesn't make it right!

What is appropriate on one persons taxes, may not be appropriate at all on yours. Circumstances vary. In addition, what another person does on their taxes may be wrong. They may or may not get away with it for long. It usually takes the IRS two years to send a letter. They are that far behind.
