We are proud to announce that we are a part of the IRS e-file program. We are an authorized IRS e-file provider and will be filing all individual income tax returns electronically this year for the benefit of our clients.
Some of the many advantages of the e-file program are:
- You receive your refunds in half the time of paper returns and even quicker if you have direct deposit.
- Your tax return is automatically checked for accuracy, and if errors are detected we will be alerted to them immediately to avoid letters or notices from the IRS down the road.
- e-file transmissions are secure and much safer than mailing paper forms and writing checks.
- You will receive a copy of your tax return just as always and we will keep a copy in our office as well.
Please call our office or visit the Tennessen Forms tab to access the various forms we will need completed in order to prepare your tax return. During the tax season, we usually complete returns within one to two weeks of your dropping it off. Our preparation fee is not due until the return is complete and picked up. We accept all major credit cards as well as cash or check. We can’t deduct our fee from your refunds. We are an authorized IRS e-file provider and are required to file all individual and most business income tax returns electronically.
If you have not taken advantage of our referral program please do so this year! We are here to serve you and your neighbors, colleagues, friends and family. When a new client brings in their return and mentions your name, you will receive a $30 credit towards your fee. This is only for new clients referred and is available after their return is paid for. We have determined that our biggest competition is the taxpayer who chooses to do their own return. As we prepare over 1,000 returns annually you can be assured that we will not miss a deduction or credit that you are entitled to. Our guarantee to you isn’t a gimmick or a slogan, it is our reputation and fact that we sign your returns as Registered Tax Return Preparers*. The IRS has issued new regulations regarding our roles and we take your information, tax returns and personal information very seriously.
As you browse our website, you will see that we have highlighted background information and the services we provide; also, we have included useful resources such as articles (in our Newsletter section) and interactive financial calculators (in our Resources section). In addition, we have taken the time to gather many links to external websites that we felt would be of interest to our clients and visitors (in our Links section). Our most popular links are to the right under “Helpful Links”.
Please feel free to contact Tennessen Accounting’s staff with any questions or comments you may have – we’d love to hear from you. We pride ourselves on being responsive to our clients’ inquiries and suggestions.
