Unfortunately, at this point in time, we do not have a true online tax preparation module which would allow you to prepare your own tax return through our web site. We have been looking into such a possibility, but we also have strong mixed feelings about this process. We realize that many individuals prepare their own taxes because of convenience and cost. Over the past several years of preparing tax returns for the general public, there have been numerous occasions where we found that individuals who prepared their own returns, severely shorted themselves of refund amounts due to their lack of tax law knowledge. Fortunately in some of these cases we were able to go back and amend these returns when they were within the last 3 years. Tax preparation software is not intelligent software. The software simply adds and subtracts data inputs based upon answering yes and no questions in many instances. The user cannot interact with the software by asking questions, and must spend time reviewing tax law, to answer these questions correctly. At Total Tax Solutions we view the preparation of the income tax return as a time for your annual financial checkup. When we prepare your taxes, we not only explain where you are and what happened during the year, but also tell you how your actions may help you save additional taxes in the future. We can tell you when you will be losing deductions or credits, and how certain actions you take may cost you much more than you anticipated. Beginning in tax season 2008, we started offering an extension of our "drop off service" to include electronic or online "drop offs" of tax documents for professional preparation. Simply scan all applicable tax documents received as well as a copy of your prior year's return and send as an attachment to our e-mail address. If a scanner is not available, you can fax all of your tax documents as well as a copy of last year's return to our office. We also ask that you complete one of our "Drop Off Forms" available at this web site, only to the extent of information that may be missing from the prior year's return such as telephone numbers and birth dates. We can review your documents and prepare your tax return saving you your time during the data entry process. We will require a contact telephone number and a best time to call, so that we can discuss any missing or required information with you prior to scheduling a time for you to come in to review and sign the return. If you find you are unable to find an appropriate time to come into our office, upon payment of the return, we can also e-mail copies of the return in PDF format and discuss any issues with you by telephone. After the telephone review, we will have you print and sign the electronic file forms and ask you to mail this form to us by postal mail. Upon receipt of your signature, we will electronically file your return and can arrange for a direct deposit of any refunds. We are trying to make the tax preparation process as convenient as possible in today's hectic world while at the same time meeting our objective of providing you with knowledgeable advice so that you can make informed decisions pertaining to your financial future.
