Individual Tax Preparation

So happy I decided to go with Firm1040. The value was fantastic but their responsiveness was so refreshing. I will definitely use them for my annual taxes next year.

Business Tax Preparation

Great experience with Cherie, was great at answering all questions and always responded quickly! I was super stressed about tax season, but she helped me (a new business owner) not even think or stress about the whole process. 10/10, will likely come back next year!

Cherie is wonderful! She is knowledgeable and competent and kind. She took her time answering all my questions. My tax return was completed in a timely fashion and her prices are reasonable. I plan on using her services every year going forward. She’s a sweetheart!

Individual Tax Preparation

Working with Cherie at FIRM1040 was an absolute pleasure.  When looking for a tax preparer, the most important thing for me is that we speak the same language.  My wife and I own a few investments and a couple of rental properties, and Cherie knew exactly what questions to ask in trying to get us the most favorable return.  Cherie was also very accessible; every time I would have a question, she would get back to me in minutes. Her work quality is unmatched, as she took out several days to go through our tax return with a fine-tooth comb to make sure everything was correct. It is very apparent by Cherie's professionalism and poise that she's seen it and done it all when it comes to taxes.  Please do yourself a favor and hire her; she does a fantastic job.

Cherie is AWESOME! I reached out to her on Thursday and she setup a call with me on Friday. After our call I was able to enter in all my information in her online portal. I had business expenses, stocks, multiple state tax returns and she made everything so easy with her online portal. I submitted everything on Friday and had my return prepared on Monday and she gave me a call to walk me through the highlights. She also gives personalized tax suggestions on how to save on next years taxes (for example, you didn’t max out your 401k, etc.). Cherie really cares about her clients and I would highly recommend working with her!
