Absolutely! We usually close our client list sometime between March 15 and April 1 so make sure to fill out our tax quote form to reserve your spot.
Do you offer free consults?
We offer free consults May through December. During tax season, our calendar is full of tax prep and tax meetings so we ask you to book a Discovery Call. This way Melissa can set aside special time and attention for you and your business needs.

To file both personal + business taxes, fill out our tax quote form first.
We'll review the form and respond with a tax quote within three business days. If you decide to accept our quote, you'll receive our tax organizer and can begin the tax prep process.
We will not accept new clients once we are booked to full capacity so the sooner you get started, the better!

What sort of documents will I need to upload?
Regarding personal documents:
You can click here for a list of common personal documents.
Regarding business documents:
If you own a business or worked freelance, we'll need to see your business expenses and income.
+ If you run a S-corp, you are legally required to keep your bookkeeping and payroll records updated. Should you need help with this, let us know when filling out our tax quote form.
+ If you worked as a contractor (fiverr, upwork, uber, etc.) you'll also want to upload the 1099 form(s) you receive.
+ If you used bookkeeping software to keep track of your business expenses/income, you can simply export the reports we ask for or give us access to your software to retrieve them.
What if I used my own spreadsheet for bookkeeping?
If you used your own bookkeeping spreadsheet, please sort your expenses according to IRS tax categories. (Schedule C categories)
There will an additional fee if we need to sort/create the proper categories for you.
- If you didn't use anything to track your expenses in 2018, we recommend catching up on this spreadsheet.
- For 2019, we recommend THIS spreadsheet. The spreadsheets are easy-to-use and cheaper than our additional fees.
Can you do my bookkeeping?
Unfortunately, we are booked to full capacity with bookkeeping clients and projects. If you'd like referrals to some amazing bookkeepers, simply contact us and let us know!
IF YOU NEED CLEANUP WORK FOR TAX SEASON, contact us immediately for a referral. Bookkeepers are booking up FAST. You might have to file a tax extension if you're not set up with a bookkeeper by March.
Our team will grow post-tax season. Let us know if you'd like to be put on our bookkeeping waitlist! Please note, we only offer monthly bookkeeping WITH tax services. Bookkeeping is not a stand-alone service.

I'm a US citizen but live outside the country, can you help me?
Sure! If you have US income, you'll file a US tax return. Because you'll have potential complications with your tax return, the rates will be higher. Please click here to fill out our tax quote form.
