Practical No Pretense

My approach to dealing with problems, tax or otherwise, is to break down the complex into easy-to-deal-with parts.  Few things are more complex than taxes, and the rules that govern them. When professionals talk at you with technical jargon, it just adds to the confusion.  Taxes are my livelihood, it’s my job to understand the rules and apply them.   When my clients want to be educated on the tax rules, I break it down simply in plain language.  Heavy tax talk puts people off and makes them tune out.  My mission is to make the whole tax process less stressful by cutting through the confusion.

Quality Service At A Fair Price

Due to large overhead expenses at big firms, clients pay a premium for the same quality tax services I can provide at affordable rates. As an independent small business owner, I control the billing and overhead costs. So I am able to offer excellent service, the most up-to-date information and efficient turnaround at a fair price.   Tax preparation franchises, while advertised as inexpensive, can be costly due to lack of expertise that leads to errors and lost tax savings.

Quotable Quotes
