Our Value-Based Pricing Model

We understand that our Clients are different, and have diversified needs. Some do in-house bookkeeping and enjoy compiling records while others prefer to roll-over all the paperwork to an accountant or tax practitioner. Some Clients want a tax return prepared at low cost while many expect more than just a tax return preparer, they look for a trusted tax adviser, tax planning specialist, or an experienced accountant.

To match the needs of our Clients, we have adopted a pricing model that is heavily dependent upon the additional value we create for you. Moreover, we are challenged to ensure the value you receive, always exceeds the fees you pay. Our value-based pricing model also helps us keep our professional fees far below the average for the industry.

Individual Tax Returns

Our tax return preparation fees start as low as $60.00 for 1040-EZ, 1040-A, or 1040NR-EZ, and $95.00 for 1040 or 1040-NR returns. Most state income tax returns are charged flat at $50.00 ($60.00 for CA and NY State tax returns). Additional flat-rate fees apply only if certain forms, schedules or other value-added services are required for the accurate completion of your individual return.

Partnership Tax Returns

Our partnership tax return fees start as low as $400.00 for a 1065 return. State income tax returns start at $90.00 per state. Additional flat-rate fees apply only if certain forms, schedules or other value-added services are required for the accurate completion of the partnership return.

Corporate Tax Returns

Our corporate tax return fees start as low as $500.00 for 1120-S and $550.00 for 1120/1120-F returns. Most state income tax returns start at $100.00 per state. Additional flat-rate fees apply only if certain forms, schedules or other value-added services are required for the accurate completion of the corporate return.

Bookkeeping and Accounting Services

For bookkeeping and accounting services we offer our Clients are a choice between a stand-alone bookkeeping at a price of $40.00 per hour, or a recurring monthly package with additional benefits, such as preparation of accounting policies, interim financial statements, various statistics, forecasts, budgets, planning and payroll services. All packages require an annual subscription, and the fee varies depending on your particular needs. All bookkeeping services are rendered by Professional Bookkeepers, who are supervised by a Certified Public Accountant.
