Preparing your own income tax return can be a task that leaves you with more questions than answers! Whether we like it or not, today’s tax laws are so complicated that filing a relatively simple return can be confusing and prepared incorrectly. 


 It is too easy to overlook deductions or credits that you are entitled to.  Even using a software program is no substitute for an experienced tax professional. We specialize in Individual and Business Tax Returns, Offer In Compromise, IRS Settlement, and Installment Plans.

*To be eligible for the $6,000 loan amount, your expected Federal refund less authorized fees must be at least $7,000. An Easy Advance (EA) is a loan secured by and paid back with your tax refund and is offered by Republic Bank & Trust Company, Member FDIC, to eligible taxpayers. Loan amount options are based on your expected Federal refund less authorized fees. If approved for an EA, a Finance Charge may apply. The loan is subject to underwriting and approval. EA proceeds are typically available within 24 hours of IRS acceptance of tax return or within 24 hours for those filing before the IRS start date; however, if direct deposit is selected, it may take additional time for your financial institution to post the funds to your account. Visit your tax preparer to learn about the cost and timing of all filing and product options. Available with the preparation of the 2023 federal tax return through Feb. 28, 2024.
