UPDATE:  The 2018 Tax Filing Season has begun.  We are taking many calls about the government shutdown and how it may affect filing and, more importantly, the issuance of tax refunds.  The IRS has confirmed that it will begin processing returns on January 28th, 1019, and provide refunds as scheduled despite the government shutdown.  The filing deadline for 2018 Individual Tax Returns is Monday, April 15th, 2019.

There are lots of changes that affect 2018 Individual Tax Returns, with all 1040’s being affected in one way or another. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that passed in December 2017 produced some winners and some losers among different categories of taxpayers. We want you to know we are here and well prepared to sort this out for you. We have spent a lot of time this past year to understand the new tax law and how it will impact taxpayers this coming season and it’s becoming clearer who the likely winners and losers of the tax overhaul are. Whether or not you benefit under the new tax law, it’s important to understand the new rules for proper tax planning going forward. That’s where we separate ourselves from other tax offices. We are not just Tax Preparers with a goal on getting you in and out of the door in a hurry. We pride ourselves on being true Tax Professionals who not only see you one time and complete a tax return, but are available year round to help you map out a successful Tax Plan.We firmly believe no one should have to pay the IRS more than they legally owe. That is why we go to great lengths to assist our clients with much more than just their Annual Tax Return. If you feel you have been slighted by others or if you are concerned with your abilities to do your own return, we invite you to be absolutely certain you only pay the lowest amount of tax. We feel you will be reassured by placing your trust in us and we will not let you down. Contact our office to begin the process of getting an accurate return as well as a tax plan together this coming season. We look forward to meeting and establishing a long term relationship with you.

We know it’s tax season as all of the chains begin to taunt their services after just coming out of hiding since last tax season. All the promises of quick returns, largest refunds, and tax loans where you can get up to $6000 are filling the airwaves. And believe you me, such accusations come at a premium price for many of the unsuspecting folks that go that route. That’s why we offer the following that sets us apart from the more seasonal preparer. A professional’s knowledge is of paramount importance.

Every year our staff receives training called continuing education. Having logged 90 plus hours this past year, it better equips us to serve our clients. We pride ourselves on our clients seeing the same experienced staff each and every year. Jim and Matt continue to be in good standing as IRS Enrolled Agents and Lynn and Terry are current on the Annual Filing Season Program having completed IRS approved courses. Remember that you are dealing with a local, family owned and operated business that goes to great lengths to treat each client in a personal manner and we put your needs first. And to top this off we offer you this premium service at a very low cost. If you are looking for an experienced, personable, reasonable price, and knowledgeable tax professional you should give Advantage Tax Service a try. Let us alleviate all the stress of doing the returns yourself or the outrageous fees that others would charge. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed. We look forward to seeing you.
