Did you know you have up to 3 years to re-submit any missing or incorrect information to the IRS and claim your modified refunds? At Affordable Tax Preparation we hate when people talk about their lifestyle and we realize their prior professionals missed claiming deductions or securing more refund money for them. Having another professional look over your taxes, at no charge, can be a validating way to ensure the job was done right, you got your maximum value for the service you paid for, and that you don’t miss the opportunity to claim any money you’re owed before the government sneaks away with it. Get started today by scheduling a conversation about reviewing the last 3 years of your tax returns, for free! Nikki says: “You won’t pay a dime for my time unless I can get you additional unclaimed money that you’re owed from missed deductions & tax refunds items.”

From simple to complex individual or family tax preparations and filings, we work with you to go through every step of the process. At the end of our meeting, you will have a completely prepared/filed tax return for the year. In addition, most clients know if their return was accepted by the government by the end of the Tax Preparation and Filing session. Pricing is based on the complexity of the return but all filings are kept affordable, even small business tax preparation and returns. Don’t wait until April to begin your tax preparation. Taxes are a year-round business and Nikki is here to help your business or family prepare for the best tax year you can have.

“Nikki has prepared our taxes for probably the last 12 years. She has always been very professional and seems to ask every question there is in order to get the most thorough tax return possible. She moves slowly with the return so we understand all the entries. We have full confidence in Nikki’s preparation and have recommended her to several of our friends.”

“Nikki has been filing my taxes for over 10 years. During that time I owned a business, and always felt like she made sure we were educated and aware of any available deductions, and looked for ways to save us money. I no longer file business returns, but continue to use Nikki for the peace of mind that everything is being filed accurately and I’m saving as much as possible. She has always been available to answer questions or concerns, and is the person I trust when it comes to filing personal and business returns. ”
