Why should I work with an accountant?

If you’ve always done your taxes on your own using one of the many wonderful online tax calculation tools, you may find yourself wondering if a CPA is worth the investment. Beyond the basics – preparing and filing your complete and accurate tax returns – I offer my clients comfort in knowing that all their questions are answered – not just at tax time but throughout the year. Planning a change in tax status (via marriage or the birth of a child)? Dreaming of venturing into business for yourself? Let me help.

How much with all this cost?

For annual and quarterly tax returns, my fee is based on the forms required to prepare a complete and accurate return. Therefore, your return will get more expensive as your tax situation gets more complicated. This flat fee structure means that you will know from the outset how much your return preparation will cost and do not need to be concerned with the time it takes for your return to be completed.

Do you offer ongoing payroll services?

I do not, however, I have a connection at ADP and knowledge of different online payroll options so reach out to me and we will get your payroll situation squared away.

Do you offer free consultations?

In order to make theĀ time we spend together beneficial for us both, I charge for all consultation time. During this time, you will be able to ask all the questions you have about your business and tax situation. My hourly fee for consultation is broken into 30-minute increments, so you will only be charged for the time you use and do not need to worry about booking more time than you need.
