Tax Return Preparation for Individuals

As you are probably aware, preparing your own tax return is not as easy as it sounds. The U.S. tax code is so complicated that even filing a relatively simple return can produce questions the average person can’t answer.

Here’s What You Get with Our Tax Return Service

  • Your tax return will be checked and rechecked by our computer software identifying potential problems the IRS may look at more closely and reviewing the math to limit IRS contacts.
  • Your tax return can be filed electronically so you will get a refund back quicker.
  • We will show you potential deductions to limit your tax liability for next year. In addition, we will give you a sheet of commonly overlooked deductions to limit the following year’s tax liability.

PRICING: Individual Tax Return (Single Person, Married filing Jointly, Sole Proprietor)

    • $149.00 – 1040-A – Tax return preparation for a basic 1040-A with standard deduction begins at $149.00. If your tax return is a bit more complex than a 1040-EZ, it probably falls into the 1040-A category. Many taxpayers who have various types of income, such as retirement or interest income, in addition to regular wages, but do not have personal deductions, would qualify to file form 1040-A.


    • $199.00 – Itemized Individual Tax Return — Our base rate for a simple itemized individual tax return is $199.00. This would include mortgage write off, tax write off, charitable and medical. Other tax forms such as credits and deductions would add some extra (but small affordable fees) to the base cost based on time and complexity.


    • $ 200.00 up Self Employed Sole Proprietors’ Tax Return – who will be required to file a ‘Schedule C’ is $200.00 and up. The ‘and up” caveat is necessary because some self-employed, sole-proprietor’s Schedule ‘C’s can be extremely extensive and time-consuming.


  • $225.00 to $250.00 –Average, Married, Affluent Tax Payers filing a joint tax return – we prepare a full-fledged set of Federal and State tax returns.
    EXAMPLE: Consider a recent average, married, affluent Yorba Linda family – they own an home with mortgage and mortgage interest deduction, multiple dependents including minor children and a college-age young adult living at home who has a part-time job, dual incomes for the husband and wife, investment income, lots of deductions. They require a basic basic Income Tax Return INCLUDING a couple of add-on tax forms to cover some of their reporting complexities. They will leave our office with a bill totalling, on average, between $225.00 to $250.00.NOTE: If the parents or student – want us to also address the college student’s IRS and California tax returns, we can process his or her 1040-EZ (California & IRS) which would add another $49.00. Most working college students end up receiving a tax refund.
