About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I am the author of The Professional Tax Preparer, a four-volume income tax training course that I update every year. But the best thing about Bottom Line Bookeeping & Tax is our focus on outstanding customer service.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I like my relationship with my clients, most of whom are really great people that I would enjoy as friends even if we didn't have a working relationship. Associating with them, even if only once a year, is a real pleasure.

    I'm just getting started, but what we've been able to go over so far has been great. I'm looking forward to the end result.

    Thanks for your review, Celia. Any luck tracking down that missing tax info or do we need to contact the IRS and request tax transcripts?

    When I went in for my appointment, I was greeted by a very lovely, friendly young lady and was immediately invited to "go right in." Mr. Brough was very knowledgeable and efficient. He gave me the option of waiting while he worked on my taxes or coming back in when they were done. I chose to wait. It was a pleasant experience and reasonably priced. I plan to have Mr. Brough do my taxes in the future.

    Bill is fantastic! We came in for our first meeting with an idea of what we should get, we used Turbo Tax. Bill was able to find some deductions that we had no idea about and we are working on getting the information to over double our return. Bill is great to work with. He has been very personable and helpful in making sure we understand the deductions we can have and other possible ones to look for. We most certainly will be using him next year!

    Meeting an accountant for the first time can be an anxious and stressful time due to the nature of tax preparation. Bill was extremely friendly and knowledgable. This combination put me at ease right from the start. Bill listened to me and my situation and was very thorough in my tax preparation. I am glad I found him, and would recommend anyone I know to let Bill take the stress out of tax preparation.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I attend several tax seminars and conferences every year; the tax code changes so much it is not possible to stand pat and expect to keep up. This not only keeps me current as each new tax season arrives, but is absolutely necessary in order to update The Professional Tax Preparer, the tax curriculum I wrote in 2008.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
I charge by the form, like most tax professionals. I do not charge by the hour, nor do I charge a percentage of your refund, which is highly dishonest.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I had a client who owned rental property in Pennsylvania but lived in Sandy. They had never claimed depreciation for the house they rented, and when I tried to get it for them they couldn't tell me what the lot was worth (land cannot be depreciated) so we could separate that cost from the value of the structure. They told me not to worry about it but I knew it would be a big tax benefit to them, so I spent the better part of the day making calls to PA until I could find the answer. I didn't need to do that, and I didn't charge for my time. But I couldn't leave a good deduction on the table when I knew how much it would help them. I'm just too much of a perfectionist to be satisfied with less than the best I can do.
