***** Upon working 60 hours the last 3 days before the 2018 extended (final) tax filing deadline, Jeff The Tax Man got to tax return client #407 submitted on 10/1/19, which is where he will pick up when he returns from his break. OUR OFFICE WILL BE CLOSED FROM 12:01 AM WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16TH UNTIL 9:00 AM MONDAY, OCTOBER 21ST. *****

****  Our final deadline for submitting 2018 tax data was August 15th for S Corporations and September 1st for individuals. Even though it is past our 9/1/19 deadline, go ahead and submit your tax data to us, because the IRS does NOT assess penalties when you file past the deadline AND ARE DUE A REFUND, if you have filed an extension. We make every effort to get all returns that owe tax filed by the October 15th deadline. We accept tax data via mail, email, fax, uploaded to our Secure Client Portal, or physically placed in our lockable drop box on the north side of our house by the iron gate at the back of our driveway.  ****

***  Jeff The Tax Man had to have last-minute skin cancer surgery Monday, 9/9/19. Because the incision was close to his right eye, the significant swelling, which could last 4-6 weeks, has prevented him from easily reading or seeing his computer. Please bear with us as we do our best to work around this impediment.  ***

***  Remember we are always accepting new clients. Moreover, the IRS is alerting taxpayers who have not filed their prior year tax returns that they are in jeopardy of losing any potential refund if they do not file it within 3 years from its due date, including extensions. So, if you have not filed your back tax returns and especially if you think you are due a refund, get us the tax data for those years ASAP…before you lose the opportunity to claim that money! Go to the “Tax Worksheets” page of this website to become a client.  ***

Our motto is “Pay YOURSELF, not the IRS”

We specialize in preparing income tax returns for independent beauty consultants, Directors, Senior Directors, Executive Senior Directors, and National Sales Directors of a particular global cosmetics company. At last count, we have over 100 clients who are Directors and above, and that number is growing every year. In fact, over 90% of our clients have a home-based business and over 90% of those operate a cosmetics business. (These are not your normal, simple tax returns, and our business is not your typical storefront, prepare them while you wait, tax preparation firm.) Since our beginning in 1991, we have grown from 8 clients to nearly 500 today, virtually all by word of mouth referrals, probably like yourself. Moreover, we have expanded our influence into 25 states and several foreign countries. We understand home-based businesses and their unique tax deductions because we are one. So if you operate a home-based business, we know how to prepare your tax return. And if you operate a particular cosmetics sales and management business, we know how to prepare your business’ tax return probably better than anyone else in the country – because we make it our business to know that business. Jeff The Tax Man contends that there is not another single tax preparer in the country who prepares as many of these type of returns as he does, and that he prepares approximately 50-100 times as many of these type of returns as most preparers. That’s why we have saved thousands of people literally millions of dollars in tax and how we will help you “Pay YOURSELF, not the IRS. “You may ask if our expertise is worth the money you would pay us to prepare your tax return? Click on “Testimonials” to see where Jeff The Tax Man’s expertise got one National Sales Director over $20,000 more on the same federal and state tax returns than her previous CPA. Moreover, you may ask if having us prepare your tax return is worth the projected wait. Well one client on our “Testimonials” page wished they had not paid their former tax preparer his fee, only to have to pay us to prepare it all over again in order to find them an ADDITIONAL $6,964 IN TAX SAVINGS. The moral: pay us to do it right (and thus get you the most tax savings) the first time!
