What to bring:

  • Photo ID
  • SSN/ITIN verification document
  • Completed Tax Organizer
  • Prior year tax return, required for ongoing businesses, helpful for other returns
  • Dependent residency verification, needed for returns claiming dependent credits (school registration record, medical record with address, etc…)
  • Power of Attorney, if applicable
  • IRS Identity Protection PIN, if applicable
  • Forms reporting income (W-2, 1099-R, 1099-Misc, etc…)
  • Information and documentation of income not on a tax form (tip records, receipts, invoices, etc…)
  • Information and documentation of expenses (Charitable contributions, tax payments, receipts, invoices, etc…)
  • Certificate of Rent Paid (CRP) or Statement of Property Taxes Payable in 2019 for MN property tax refund
  • Health care coverage info, still needed for tax year 2018
  • Letters from the IRS or MN Revenue, if applicable
  • Any other document or information you have a question about

 

Cost:

  • Initial consultation up to 20 minutes is free.
  • Preparation rate is $180/hour. For most people with simple returns this means a cost between $90 and $135, assuming 30-45 minutes of preparation time. Complicated returns can cost significantly more.
  • $50 for home appointments within 15 miles of office. $1.50/mile for each extra mile. Mileage is based on driving distance.

Tax preparation fees must be paid before filing with the IRS. I do not take my fee from any potential refund amount.

I only charge based on the time it takes to complete a tax return. I do not charge based on the forms used like many paid tax preparers. I do not think it is fair for customers to be charged based on forms that will often be automatically added by tax software and the preparer does not need to do anything special to complete it.


Guarantee:

I guarantee that I will prepare an accurate return. If I have made some mistake, I will amend the return for free and pay any penalties or interest that has accrued as a result of my mistake. Clients are responsible to pay all taxes they legally owe. Clients must also provide complete and accurate information; failure by clients to provide complete and accurate information waives my responsibility to pay any penalties or interest.
