Tax Preparation


Doing taxes suck. Yeah, we said it. Life is already busy enough and now we have to organize every receipt, record every transaction, and balance a checkbook. All for what? To have someone else take a portion of our income. The good news for us tax accountants, we’re able to look beyond the mundane task of organizing numbers and data entry to get to what matters most – helping out our fellow taxpayer. Over the years we have forged strong friendships with our clients (let’s admit it, we can see past the Chanel bags and BMW’s to see what you REALLY make), so the pain of processing taxes is buffeted by the fact that we get to hang out with cool people, most of whom are entrepreneurs, and you just can’t get that same connection in any other industry.

While many are adventurous and try to prepare their own tax returns, but there are a few who think it wise to seek help in filing income tax return. According to a study released by the US Government’s General Accounting Office last year, 77% of taxpayers believe they have benefited from using a professional tax preparer.
