Should I file my own taxes?

 Just because software to file your own taxes is available, doesn't mean that you should use it. While it might seem economical at first, many people find out later that they made a mistake. Fixing these errors often costs more time and money than hiring a professional to begin with.  Using a professional to file your tax returns eliminates the risk of making these costly mistakes.

Can I afford a professional?

Yes! I strongly believe that professional tax preparation should be available to everyone. l aim to keep prices reasonable. Personal income tax returns start as low as $165. If you would like a quote please feel free to contact me.
