Tara is excellent. She's friendly, helpful, and is really organized. She was a great help during the tax season, especially with the many small questions I had.

Tara did our taxes basically overnight. She was super responsive to my questions and we’ve already received our returns. I retired and we moved from Oregon to Florida last year. She was on top of everything. We will definitely use her again next year.

Tara was excellent. She was very professional and highly responsive. This has been the easiest and most stress-free tax preparation process I have ever had. The quality and value of the services I received were well worth the price. I would definitely recommend her, and I will continue to work with her in the future.

FAQs

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

    Additional fees ($130) to Taxes by Tara's base individual tax preparation fee are for each Schedule C (sole proprietor), Schedule E (rental property) and Schedule F (farm) prepared with your tax return. If you have significant crypto currency trades that are not summarized on a 1099 report, you will have an additional fee assessed ($100/hr) to summarize those transactions for you. DISCOUNTS If you are catching up your tax filings and have multiple years to file, I will discount your tax prep fee. Please be in contact so Taxes by Tara can provide the quote to you. If you are happy with Taxes by Tara's services and one of your referred loved ones files a tax return with Taxes by Tara, your next tax return will be discounted as a thank you. That is the highest compliment you can provide is referring your friends and family.

REVIEW - Before you sign the e-file authorization document(s), please review your tax return. SIGN - Authorize me to file your tax return by signing the e-file authorization document(s). ACCEPTANCE - After your tax return has been accepted, I will send you an email informing you of the good news. You can consider your tax return DONE AND DONE!
