We offer tax services for individuals and families. There are over 800 various forms and schedules and over the last 10 years the tax code has changed on average 442 times each year. It would be our pleasure to provide professional tax preparation services for you and your family. According to the National Society of Accountants, preparers charge an average of $246 to prepare an itemized Form 1040 with a Schedule A. We can provide this service for a substantially lower rate than the national average.

Individuals file the 1040 series along with any necessary schedules and appropriate forms. Below are some of the more popular. This should give you an idea of what kind of supporting documentation you should bring to our initial meeting. We have also created this pdf to use for an income tax preparation checklist.
