(Other Income), 1099-INT (Interest Income), 1099-R (Retirement Income), Form HUD-1 (Real Estate Purchases), etc. Additionally, we will need any other information regarding deductions you may claim for medical expenses, childcare, charitable contributions, etc.

Supplementary documentation will be requested as needed in order to finalize your return.
Do you accept referrals?

How does the affordable care act affect me?
It depends. You are required to have health insurance for every member of your household for the entire year. Depending on income level and where you purchased the insurance, you may be eligible for a credit. It's important to answer the organizer questions carefully so that we can accurately assess you specific situation. More information on the affordable care act can be found here.
How quickly will my return be done?
The length of time a return takes to prepare is dependent on the complexity of the data we’re working with and the length of time it takes for us to receive all of your supporting documentation. In addition, submitting return data during a less busy time will result in less processing time. It is important to us that we meet any timeliness requirements you may have for your tax return preparation, and would be happy to further discuss return timing with you when we have the data we need to complete the process.
