About this pro
Curtis was extremely helpful and professional. He contacted me quickly and followed up.Jun 21, 2018Verified
I had 4 years of back taxes that needed to be filed. Two of the years were more complicated due to being self employed. Curtis was patient, organized and prompt. Taxes can be very stressful, Curtis made the process simple and put my nerves to ease! Even after my taxes were filed he was responsive to my emails about IRS letters and repayment plans. Thank you for everything Curtis!Sep 24, 2017Verified

I am SO happy with Chris'work . He was open, honest and friendly. Highly approachable and genuine. I trusted him in a very short time. He worked diligently to get me the best results on my returns possible. His follow through and timeliness were impressive. I am going to move out of state in the next couple of weeks but I will be back next year at tax time to have Chris do my return!!! FIVE STARS!!!!Apr 26, 2017Verified
I was abandoned by my former tax preparer of ten years, who left me in a lurch past the tax deadline. Curtis Elliott came to the rescue. He literally prepared my taxes overnight, and within 24 hours I was done. Curtis is knowledgeable, quick and I was very happy with my refund. I will definitely be working with him again next year, highly recommend!Apr 26, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?100% Satisfaction Guaranteed or no charge. Return preparation pricing is based on $100 per hour rate, however, most clients are contracted based on a fixed price per return preparation. Fixed prices are based on information obtained through initial client conversation. As long as information is complete and accurate the fixed price is honored regardless of the time it takes to complete the return. General pricing for basic returns: Personal returns (1040, 1040A, 1040ez, 1040X) $150. Business Returns (C-Corp or S-Corp) $300.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like the first contact to be over the phone. This is where I try to confirm the price of the work, the duration, and the meeting place. I like to set the client's expectations at this meeting so there is no doubt on what is happening. I inform the client that I will collect 25% of the agreed price as a retainer. The balance is due upon satisfactory completion of the return. I accept cash or check. At our first meeting I'm always prepared to complete the return and efile. I feel clients really appreciate that everything can be finished in one meeting. I value the client's time. This is a stressful endeavor so we don't need to drag it on. With that said, there are always those circumstances that are beyond both mine and the clients which will require follow up meetings. If so, at our first meeting I will try and lay out a timetable for completion. Lastly, I will present the completed return. Confirm its completeness and accuracy with the client, then we will efile. If efile is not available then I will give the client a hard copy to mail. Personal copies are in PDF format.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I conduct at least 15 hours of continuing each year. This is an IRS requirement for participation in the 'Annual Filing Season Program'. This information is available on the IRS website. I have an Associate of Arts degree in business (Accounting) from North Seattle Community College. I studied for three years at Western Washington University. My main areas of study were Accounting (Income Tax), Finance, Computer Science and History.
