FREE FOR NEW CLIENTS - 1/2 HOUR CONSULTATION AND REVIEW OF PRIOR YEARS' TAX RETURNS

Payment Terms: Payment may be made by check, Visa or Master Card at the time the tax return is picked up or mailed (unless an advance retainer is required).  We prepare Form 1040 income tax returns based on the type and number of forms that are used in a tax return.  We do not prepare the return based on time spent or based on your income.  THE RATE SCHEDULE BELOW IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT ANY TIME.

The billing rate for experienced CPAs and attorneys who have worked more than 38 years in the field of tax law is between $260 and $450 per hour.
