We welcome all individual income tax clients, from simple and organized returns to the most complex. Whether you have one W-2 or are self-employed with extensive investments and deductions, we are pleased to work with you to file your income tax returns.  Clients can choose to meet with a tax professional in person or to take advantage of our secure online portal for remote professional preparation services.  


We value our client’s trust and believe in the principle of truthful advertising.  While most tax preparation firms will not post their tax preparation prices online, we want our clients to understand the model behind our pricing.  We pride ourselves on having a clear method to estimate the cost of our fees.  Please note, it is important to understand that each client is different and therefore, could be more complex.  We believe in fair pricing which reflects the client’s individualized situation.
