After You Make a Deposit, We Swing Into Action!

Clients who seek once a year tax services make a deposit to get work started.  Generally, we have a return ready within two weeks from when all forms are to us.  The deposit is applied to the final invoice when your return is ready.  Tax returns cannot be filed until paid in full. 

If your project runs more than two weeks, because we need more information, or it is complex, we may need to send you monthly invoices until your project completes. 

Below is a general overview of how much of a deposit you'll need to start work.
