We charge for our service either on a flat hourly fee or by a prearranged billing schedule. Our basic fees for income tax preparation start at $115.00 for the simplest return. Our average fee is around $200.00. This could be a return with two wage earners, children under age 17, and itemizing on Schedule A. This also includes Electronic Filing, as well as preparation of your Arizona tax return. The hourly rate for bookkeeping services is $45.00/hour. For tax consulting we charge $125.00 per hour. Retainers are required for certain tax situations. For a more exact fee quote, please call 602-995-2100.
Also we do offer reduced tax preparation fees in exchange for other financial services that might be offered and accepted by our clients.
As a client of A-Advantage Tax and Financial Services we encourage you to visit with us at least once a year for tax planning. This meeting will be charged at our hourly rate, but we will credit the fee against your future year tax preparation fee. This is an excellent way to strategize your tax obligations prior to actually filing your return. Usually it will pay much bigger dividends then the nominal fee we charge for this meeting.
Referrals are always appreciated and we pride ourselves on offering a 10% referral discount to those folks who come to us. As well as we will send the referring party a $10.00 bill for their thoughtfulness.
But keep in mind-it is taxable!
