All pertinent files needed to complete your tax return are included in the “zip” file for download. Be sure to include a signed Engagement Letter when you send your tax documents to us (not separately). Omission of the Engagement Letter will delay the processing of your return. Please complete all required forms to assist us in completing your tax return. Incomplete forms may require us to contact you to obtain additional information in order to complete your return.
Additionally, we advise also completing the consent form and enclosing it with your tax documents. This will allow your advisor to review your returns and assist you with your financial planning needs.Download
Please see items below for detailed information on enclosed documents.
Due to the high volume of tax returns received in a short period, the vast majority of returns received at Tax Services after March 1, 2017 may very likely be extended. Regardless of the date we receive your tax information, we cannot guarantee that your returns will be completed and sent back to you in time to be filed with the IRS or state agency by April 18, 2017.
Tax returns are billed on a per-form basis, so to estimate your 2016 tax preparation fees, compare your prior year tax forms and schedules to the pricing sheet. Be sure to take applicable discounts into consideration.Download
