Tax Season Protocol
Our process is the same fore all locations. However you may drop off at the location nearest you, your accountant will work out of a single office and we will forward information to the appropriate office when needed.
Year end consultations and planning
Starting in November, as the year ends, we start appointments for tax planning and year end consultations. These are if needed and can be in person or over the phone. This is a great time to sit down and review your income and expenses and plan how this will impact your taxes. We pause all in person appointments, at all locations, January 15th – April 15th.
