Words of Wisdom: "The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."

A few words about our Tax Preparation and Accounting fees...

Our fees for accounting services and income tax preparation are based several factors:

 

1) Organization and completeness of records given to us. It takes additional time to total & recap your records and make additional phone calls to request missing information. If we do not have to spend time organizing, totaling, and making information requests, we can charge a lower fee.We are always happy to assist you in organizing your records for completeness and accuracy.

2) Inflation. Needless to say, the cost of operating a business increases every year and if you charge the same amount as the previous year, you are actually working for less and losing money. We try to limit fee increases as much as possible; however, we are in business to provide the best possible service and expertise to all of our clients. Cutting the level of our service to cut costs is not how we do business and not an option for us. We will always remain competitive with any other Accounting firm, Tax preparation office, or National tax preparation franchise.

3) Expertise. As an Enrolled Agent and a member of the National Association of Enrolled Agents, I am required to take 30 hours per year of continuing education.The tax education requirements for an Enrolled Agent are higher than any other tax practitioner.This education is expensive, but is necessary to ensure that I can provide the highest level of tax savings and advice to my clients. Like anything else, "you get what you pay for" and if you are paying less, you are probably receiving less as well.

4) We care about YOU. We do not try to prepare as many returns as quickly as we can.We look at every tax return with the intention of finding some way to save you tax $ and we also prepare and review financial statements with the same intent.Consultation on business issues, comprehensive tax planning, and profitability strategies will enhance the services and savings that we provide to our clients.

5) We are open 12 months a year. We are not a seasonal tax preparation storefront.We are experienced tax specialists who strive to deliver the best possible product of our experience and expertise to businesses and individuals. We are here all year to assist you with planning, consultation, or any other tax/business problems that may arise during the "off season{".

6) I.R.S. Problem Solving.As an Enrolled Agent, Barry is licensed to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the I.R.S.An Enrolled Agent is 1 of only 3 types of licensed practioners who can do this and the Enrolled Agent is the only tax practitioner license granted by the Federal Government.Barry also holds ATA (Accredited Tax Advisor) and ATP (Accredited Tax Preparer) credentials.

7) Market.We currently charge less than practioners with equal qualifications; however, we do charge more than practioners who offer you less service and expertise.If you want the cheapest fee, then we are not your best choice.If you want the best value for your money, then I believe that we ARE your best choice.

I have always tried to keep our fees as low as possible without compromising the level of service that you deserve and I will always discuss our fees in advance of any engagement.
