What to Expect

We make the tax preparation process simple. The first step is to meet with you for a 30-minute initial interview. Please review our appointment checklist and medical checklist to make sure you’re prepared for the meeting.

At the meeting we will:

  • Ask you questions to make sure you get all deductions you’re entitled to

  • Make sure we have all necessary documents and information

Then you can leave the hard part to us! Our experienced preparers will file your federal and Illinois state returns with ease and call you once your return is ready to file. You can then schedule a pick-up appointment.

  • Review your return with you and answer any questions you have
  • Have you sign the authorization to e-file your return
  • Offer tax advice to plan ahead for next year
