Why should I use a CPA office?
Well, there's several reasons...
How much is this going to cost?
Our tax work* is billed based on your specific circumstances, such as complexity and time neccesary. You may request an estimated fee for services before any work begins. All invoices are due upon presentation.
Other than taxes, what else do you do?
We offer everything from Tax Planning and Preparation to IRS Representation.
How can I get in contact with you?!
Open and honest communication is a vital ingredient for success with our clients.
Can you speak to an agency (IRS, OTC, etc.) on my behalf?
We sure can! There's A LOT involved with agency compliance, but we love what we do.
Do you offer a paperless option for taxes?
Of course! Everyone's busy, we get it. We offer a secure portal to send your documents, electronic signatures for e-filing, and digital copies of your returns for a 100% remote option, should you choose.
I'm a new tax client. What do I need to bring or submit to the portal?
A few things will get us going:
What documentation do I need for a dependent? One time? Every year?
We must have paperwork in your file to document the children (in your home or away at college) are qualified dependents per IRS regulations. If the IRS disallows one of the credits, you will be asked to provide documentation to substantiate the claim.
We only need to verify this once. Documents include a birth certificate, social security card, hospital birth announcement and/or CBIB card. If the child is not biological, we may also need adoption records or DNA/paternity tests to establish relationships.
We must re-establish this for each child yearly. All documents should show their physical address to be the same as yours.
- School/daycare- report card, enrollment, attendance records, or a statement on official letterhead.
- Health care provider statement or medical records.
- Adoption or child placement documents or court records.
- Other items- bank statement, savings account, etc.
College age- bursar statement, semester transcript, etc.
Please note the time span should be more than six (6) months of the year, so you may need more than one document to meet the requirements. For example, a spring and fall report card.
We understand these may seem extensive or invasive, but we are required by Section 6695(g) of the Internal Revenue Code and face potential penalties for each child and credit claimed. Thank you for your understanding.
