TAX PREPARATION & FILING

Many bookkeepers do not prepare tax returns, but an experienced bookkeeper knows many of the answers to your tax preparer’s questions—before your tax preparer even asks them.

We recommend that you schedule some time to review the previous year’s books with us. We make sure any questions we have for you have been resolved.

Our tax preparation process for business and personal tax preparation is simple and adjusted to your needs. Book an appointment ahead of time and we will walk you through the process.
