Your ally in tax preparation
Alliance Tax Professionals offers a welcome alternative to ordinary taxpayers who don’t want the hassle of preparing their own tax returns--but don’t want to pay a fortune to have a CPA or tax preparation chain do it for them.
At the heart of the firm are people with terrific skills who know that this business is all about relationships. Their incomparable dedication to creating/maintaining customer alliances ensures that clients walk away year after year with more than an accurate, affordable tax return; they walk away with a consistently great experience.
Free from error or defect; resulting in a tax liability consistent with the Goldilocks standard (i.e., neither too much nor too little)
A fair deal; resulting in a price that beats the typical fees of CPAs and tax preparation franchises
Someone easy to meet, know, talk with; resulting in comfortable conversations about uncomfortable topics (i.e., tax, wealth, and household finances)
We prepare federal, state and local income tax returns for individuals, small businesses and rental real estate owners. As an authorized IRS E-file service provider, we electronically file federal, state and (where possible) local returns at no additional charge.
If you have made an error on a prior return, we can help you set things right with federal, state, and/or local agencies. Having an amended return prepared professionally can spare you the time and frustration that results from failing to understand—and provide—what a tax agency is looking for.
Tax Planning and Estimates
As household circumstances and income change, so does tax liability. If you’ve gotten married, lost a job, sent a child to college, cashed in an IRA, sold a stock—or done anything else to alter your life or wealth--we can help you prepare for the bottom line on April 15.
Tax Withholding Recommendations
Filling out a new W-4 for an employer or a W4-P for a pension administrator is a guessing game for most folks. We can take the mystery out of W-4s and help you withhold the “just-right” amount based on your particular circumstances.
If you get a notice advising you of additional taxes due, we can help you figure out where the “disconnect” is between you and IRS. And we can help you respond with the right documentation to get things straightened out in just one attempt.
Negotiating Installment Plans
If you have a balance due that you cannot pay and want to work with the IRS to negotiate a payment plan, we can help you navigate the process. Once that plan is negotiated, we can help you understand how to stay in compliance.
Should I do it myself?
The availability of off-the-shelf tax software makes a self-prepared tax return a legitimate, low-cost alternative. If you just have a couple of W-2s and a few deductions, it may make perfect sense to do it yourself. But, for a lot of people it is truly not the best option. Here are a few reasons why:
1. Garbage in, garbage out: Your tax software will ask questions to guide you through completion of your return. But if you do not understand the questions—and answer incorrectly—the software may swiftly guide you to the wrong answer.
2. Software cannot converse: Taxpayers have dozens of questions about the legitimacy of specific credits and deductions. Tax experts can tailor advice to specific circumstances and answer follow-up questions; software cannot.
3. Software cannot see your paperwork: Your tax preparer can sort the wheat from the chaff when it comes to all the tax-related documents you receive—making sure you report everything the IRS requires. Your software will never know what you did not see or interpret correctly.
4. Your software does not know you live in a taxing city: Local returns complicate many people’s filing situation. The rules about who taxes what—and how much--are as varied as the number of taxing jurisdictions. That is a task your package software just will not touch.
