    When you are talking with Maryjo it is clear that you are talking with someone who is very knowledgeable about the tax law, but is also caring towards her clients. I learned more from an hour long conversation with her that I have from reading 100s of internet articles. I would highly recommend her to other self employed individuals such as myself.

    Maryjo was easy to talk to, fast and efficient. It was obvious she had a complete understanding of taxes in particular and the IRS in general. I can heartily endorse her.

    RBCE, Inc. is awesome!
    I'm so happy that I used Thumbtack otherwise, I would have never found RBCE, Inc! RBCE, Inc. is awesome! They responded very quickly and answered all my questions including ones I didn't even know to ask. I have a landscape construction business and they knew exactly how to guide me and help me keep everything straight in the simplest terms. I will be using them from now on for my book keeping and for all my tax needs! I highly recommend RBCE, Inc.

    In and out in 45 min
    Mary Jo was fantastic. I was on the fence between hiring a person or using TurboTax to do my taxes. During her initial free 30 min consultation I got all my questions answered and had enough information to make a decision based on my needs. I decided to go with RBCE and it was well worth it, we were in and out in 45 min and by the and of it my taxes were filed and my refund on the way. Very reasonable prices too, others had quoted me up to 4 times as much, which made no sense to me. The price seemed appropriate to the level of complexity of my situation. I plan to stick with RBCE going forward.

    Very knowledgeable and courteous
    Maryjo was willing to offer a free phone call consult to help me. Even though I haven't used her yet, that spoke volumes to me and she was very courteous and knowledgeable. That deserves 5 stars in my book. When it comes tax time, I will more than likely use her service as it's cheaper than H&R or Jackson Hewitt and more personable.

    Maryjo at rbce was both accommodating and professional. In addition to filing my taxes that had a few unusual complexities (for me), she completed them quickly and noticed I paid too much in a prior year and said I should re-file for an adjustment!

    Maryjo did what she said she would. She came out to our house twice, was very friendly, knew what she was doing, was professional, and then when it came time to pay, she charged us over 25% less than she quoted. I was very pleased. She is now doing our personal taxes. Tom Ranken

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I determine the price for tax return preparation based on the complexity of the return and the forms that need to be filled out. I always give a firm quote once I have discussed the tax return to be prepared with a client.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I take at least 25 hours of continuing education each year to stay current with tax law. I received my MBA in March 2013. I received my Enrolled Agent status from IRS in July 2013. Enrolled agents (EAs) are America's Tax Experts. EAs are the only federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and also have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS. - See more at: http://www.naea.org/#sthash.4hJHn4uA.dpuf
What types of customers have you worked with?
We prepare all types of tax returns(federal, state, sales, franchise, etc.) and specialize in small business and self-employed tax returns. We also perform small business consulting, basic bookkeeping services, and audit representation.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Here are ten tips to keep in mind when choosing a tax return preparer: 1. Check the preparer’s qualifications. All paid tax return preparers are required to have a Preparer Tax Identification Number. In addition to making sure they have a PTIN, ask if the preparer belongs to a professional organization and attends continuing education classes. 2. Check on the preparer’s history. Check with the Better Business Bureau to see if the preparer has a questionable history. Also check for any disciplinary actions and for the status of their licenses. For certified public accountants, check with the state boards of accountancy. For attorneys, check with the state bar associations. For enrolled agents, check with the IRS Office of Enrollment. 3. Ask about service fees. Avoid preparers who base their fee on a percentage of your refund or those who claim they can obtain larger refunds than other preparers can. Also, always make sure any refund due is sent to you or deposited into an account in your name. Taxpayers should not deposit their refund into a preparer’s bank account. 4. Ask to e-file your return. Make sure your preparer offers IRS e-file. Any paid preparer who prepares and files more than 10 returns for clients must file the returns electronically, unless the client opts to file a paper return. IRS has safely and securely processed more than one billion individual tax returns since the debut of electronic filing in 1990. 5. Make sure the preparer is accessible. Make sure you will be able to contact the tax preparer after you file your return, even after the April 15 due date. This may be helpful in the event questions arise about your tax return. 6. Provide records and receipts. Reputable preparers will request to see your records and receipts. They will ask you questions to determine your total income and your qualifications for deductions, credits and other items. Do not use a preparer who is willing to e-file your return by using your last pay stub before you receive your Form W-2. This is against IRS e-file rules. 7. Never sign a blank return. Avoid tax preparers that ask you to sign a blank tax form. 8. Review the entire return before signing. Before you sign your tax return, review it and ask questions. Make sure you understand everything and are comfortable with the accuracy of the return before you sign it. 9. Make sure the preparer signs and includes their PTIN. A paid preparer must sign the return and include their PTIN as required by law. The preparer must also give you a copy of the return. 10. Report abusive tax preparers to the IRS. You can report abusive tax preparers and suspected tax fraud to the IRS on Form 14157, Complaint: Tax Return Preparer. If you suspect a return preparer filed or altered a return without your consent, you should also file Form 14157-A, Return Preparer Fraud or Misconduct Affidavit. Download the forms on the IRS.gov website or order them by mail at 800-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676).
