We charge hourly for tax work, however we do have a $600 return minimum. This minimum is in place as we are not only here to provide data entry of your return, but to give you personalized attention and service. We help ensure that you are taking advantage of all possible deductions, and keeping your tax liability as low as possible. Minimum returns are typically individual returns with a few additional schedules, such as Schedule A for itemized deductions, Schedules B and D for investment income, Schedule E for rentals, and so on.
