Individual and Business Tax Return Preparation

Did you know the IRS says it takes approximately 4 hours to prepare your 1040 form? If you did it yourself, you may have looked at the form for that long with a blank stare. Tax preparation should be simple.  Unfortunately, over the last 100 years, the tax code became multiple volumes and you would need a decoder to figure it out.  Today, individual returns can be as complicated as are some small business returns. Proper bookkeeping and communication will help us plan for tax related issues before it is too late.

Individual Income Tax Forms and Schedules 
 Form 1040* includes schedules 1 thru 6  $100

 *There is no charge for Form 1040 if a Schedule C or Schedule E Rental income is required. The 2018 tax form revisions eliminated forms 1040A and 1040EZ.

** Bookkeeping fees aren’t usually charges if you provide the tax organizer filled out with your information. If I need to sort receipts, total receipts, or sort through statements and documents to get the numbers, then there is additional time that goes into preparing your return. My time is billed at $100 per hour during tax time for additional bookkeeping on your tax return.

***If you bring me a basket full of crumpled receipts and want me to do the bookkeeping first, I’m all for it. Our regular bookkeeping fees are $65 per hour. Contact me for a quote!***
