Could you imagine if you had been missing out on hundreds, even thousands of dollars all because you either do your taxes yourself or have a "chain" tax service do your taxes?
You could get your W2 Form in the mail and decide... "I'd like to get the absolute most money back from my taxes" ... and you would know EXACTLY how to get it... without spending a fortune.
That would be pretty amazing, wouldn't it?
My name is Ann Hartz, I have 20 years experience as a CPA to make this dream come true.
"How can Ann Hartz get me the most money from my tax return?"
There are two common paths people go down when doing their taxes.
- Do their own with a "Do-it-Yourself" home software (Turbo-Tax)
- Take their taxes to a "Chain" tax office (H&R Block, Jackson Hewitt)
There are some very common problems going down both these routes....
It is very common to easily overlook areas and make mistakes on your tax return while preparing it yourself with an at home software.
You are not a trained tax professional, it's okay to make mistakes, it's expected.
If you take your taxes to a "chain" tax office, you're still not getting a trained tax-professional. Most tax preparers at these office only have to take a 3 month tax course. Therefore, mistakes are still common.
Unfortunately, these mistakes are what can cost you potentially hundreds or even thousands of dollars!
We are all looking for ways to save time and engery in our busy schedules. When you chose to do your own taxes, you must purchase the software, download it, read the instructions, input your information, then efile the tax return away.
In the time it took to go out to the store, you can drop your W2's off to Ann to have them done in a flash. Without worries of accuracy, saving you time, energy, and money.
The reason I bring up cost as a common problem, is because I personally prepare taxes for the SAME LOW COST as the "chain" tax offices.
Which means you can get 100% Guaranteed Accuracy from an experienced, local, Certified Public Accountant for the same price as taking your taxes to H&R Block.
"How can you guarantee accuracy?"
I use my 20 years experience, triple-checking your tax return before sending it out. So you can have peace of mind, knowing that you are going to get your FULL tax return back from Uncle Sam. No mistakes, no problems.
