Introduction: ************************************Breaking News! ************************** *****************I can help you to get money from the government for **************************Coronavirus issues****************************** I am only doing returns remotely at this time. I have been preparing returns via the cell/internet for many years now. It works quite well and I still talk to my clients via the phone as often as it needs to be. I have many Thumbtack clients from all over the country and the world. I try to establish a personal relationship with my clients. The more I know about may clients, his or her business, and family situation, the more I become not just a Tax Preparer, but a Financial Advisor. I owned a successful business, employing up to 40 people, for over 20 years. So I can help my clients who are just starting out or ones who need mid career corrections. When it comes to Business Preparation I am knowledgeable on the various accounting programs that you might use-Quickbooks, Xero, or Wave or Freshbooks. I can also prepare business tax returns from clients who perform their accounting on Excel spreadsheets or Google documents. I help my clients choosing the best type of entity for their business snd work with a company that will setup your LLC or Corporation for very reasonable pricing. I can help my clients determine what is the best business entity for their small business. And at what point they should change to a more beneficial entity I attend many seminars and listen to many webinars during the year to keep up-to-date on the latest tax happenings. This would include many coronavirus Covid 19 Seminars. I am also the Treasurer of our local Enrolled Agent Group. We regularly interact with the IRS in putting on seminars and sharing input from our clients on how to improve the tax system. Because of my involvement in the EA group I have many resources to fall back upon when confronted with a difficult issue. I have extensive experience working with clients who have not filed tax returns for many years. I run interference so they do not have to talk directly with the IRS. Being helpful to my clients. I am available all year for anything that comes up outside tax season. I also learn a lot from my clients from their experiences. I am proactive with my clients especially when it comes to explaining why they owe so much money after the tax return is completed. They want answers and I supply them with the answers they need to tax plan for the next year. Many of my clients become friends because I stay in contact all year not just during tax season. I have a 90% retention rate of clients from one year to the next. I accept calls from clients wanting to check me out and make sure I am the right person for their needs.

Individual Tax Preparation

I'm so glad I found Larry to file my back taxes. Great communication start to finish and the whole process was done remotely via a secure web portal. He answered all of my questions quickly and completely and gave me complete confidence in his professional ability and the final outcome. What a relief to not have back-taxes hanging over my head! I would highly recommend Larry to anyone needing tax services. Thanks Larry!

Larry is exactly the kind of guy you want having your taxes and other related matters. He is so honest he offers to look at your returns free of charge to let you know if he can add value, and if he can't he says so. He's knowledgeable and experienced. I want to work with someone with that kind of integrity. Would recommend him to anyone.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I try to price the tax return on the amount of time it takes to complete the return and the amount of education it takes to have a proficiency for that return.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I first like to talk with a new client about their personal situation and their job/business to understand what kind of info I will need to gather for input to their tax return. I then will send them an Engagement Letter and a Tax Organizer for the client to complete. I do this through secure portals that protect the clients information from being hacked. When I receive this information back from the client I begin the process of completing the tax return.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have over 30 years of running a business whose sales reached $10 million per year. So when I talk to a new small business entrepreneur, I speak from real experience. I take over 60 hours of continuing education each year to stay current and add to my knowledge in the tax and accounting field.
