Answers:

How do you bill for your services?
Our standard billing procedure is to bill monthly. We require payment upon receipt.When you send a check to make your payment, you authorize us to initiate an electronic funds transfer from your bank account according to the terms of the check. When your check is converted to an electronic funds transfer, please note that your check will not be returned to your bank and funds may be withdrawn from your checking account the same day we receive your payment. If you do not want your check to be converted to an electronic funds transfer, please call our office at the phone number listed on your invoice. If your payment is returned to us for any reason as non-payment, we may access your account with us a $25 per item return processing fee.




Do you have an initial consultation fee?
We will meet with you at no charge to determine if our services will meet your needs.




What hours are you available?
We are available during normal business hours, which are 8:00 to 5:00, Monday through Friday. We would be happy to make special arrangements for evening or weekend consultations.




What role do you play if the IRS audits me?
Using a power of attorney, we can represent you fully if you get audited. Many times this will only require you to be present at the beginning of the audit process.




How much and what kind of preparation do you need for my return?
We prefer that your materials be in a computer accounting program, but we have taken materials in almost every imaginable form. Contact us with questions about specific software packages.
