Tax Preparation Services


The "Easy" Experience You Can Trust!

We have prepared thousands of tax returns since our business was founded in 2008 serving people from all walks of life and all income levels. Our goal is to provide the best tax preparation service at the most affordable price and become "Your Neighborhood Tax Pros" in every part of Los Angeles we serve.

 

We focus on three main ideas in all of our tax preparation duties, whether it is a simple tax situation or a complex one:

  • Extraordinary service
  • Affordable prices
  • Year-round client support

 

ALL clients we serve, from a client who pays $75 to a client who pays $400, will receive an excellent tax preparation value if we have anything to do with it. Let's briefly delve into each of these topics to see how we try to provide value to you, the client.


Extraordinary Service

Every year when we teach our weekend seminar for new and returning tax preparers, we spend the first two hours talking about service. We don't start talking about any tax law, any office procedures, or anything else until we drive home the point that SERVICE is the #1 priority.

 

But what does extraordinary service really mean, in practice? What exactly do we do for our clients to create a positive experience for every client?

 

Extraordinary service means that we do stuff like this on a daily basis:

  • Actively welcome clients into the office
  • Work as a team to make sure your tax return gets done right
  • Answer questions and give advice as necessary
  • "Go the extra mile" for the client, "good enough" is not good enough
  • EARN our fee every time by saving clients money

 

These are the kinds of activities and attitudes that you can and SHOULD expect when you walk into our office.


Affordable Prices

We don't spend a bunch of money on advertising or fancy desks precisely because we are determined to give our clients the best value in the entire field of tax preparation.

 

Our standard prices are some of the lowest you will ever find, and all prices include electronic filing, direct deposit of your federal and state refund into your bank account, and Ez Tax Express year-round support.

 

Why pay $150 when you can pay $100 and get better service?

 

Why pay $250 when you can pay $175 and get better service?

 

Unlike so many financial services companies that seek to overcharge and even exploit working Americans, we have always been and remain committed to giving every client an affordable price.


Year-Round Client Support

We have always maintained a year-round staff and we have always stood behind our clients if they ever need anything or have any problems.

 

We pick up many clients each year who went to some other tax place and now cannot find their tax person now that the client is receiving IRS letters or facing an IRS audit.

 

We do help these non-Ez Tax Express clients but we are forced to charge heavily for our time.

 

Ez Tax Express clients, meanwhile, enjoy either FREE or discounted year-round service simply because they are our clients. Most years, you may not need year-round tax support, but believe us, the one year that you do need it, you'll be happy to have it... and we'll be right here, giving it to you!

"How Much Do You Charge to Do Taxes?"

We believe that we have most affordable prices on tax preparation in the entire industry.

 

Yes indeed, our Ez Tax Express Clients regularly and consistently save $50-$200 on tax preparation, every single year.

 

We don't just beat the competition's prices, we CRUSH the competition's prices, every single year.

 

Oh and remember, too, that just because we're relatively cheap doesn't mean we don't have a great staff of experienced tax preparers because we do have an awesome team of tax preparers to handle all your tax prep & consulting needs.


How Ez Tax Express Income Tax Prices Are Calculated

Some tax returns are very simple to prepare, some are very complex. Some take 10 minutes, some take 10 hours. Some can be done by a first year tax preparer who has only gone through basic training, some must be done by an experienced tax professional who has studied taxes for many years.

 

In order to give you an exact price quote, we need to see your paperwork and find out what kind of tax preparation service you need.

 

That being said, we are happy on this page to give you an idea of what you can expect to pay for tax preparation at Ez Tax Express.

 

Best believe that we WILL provide VALUE or else we would not be in business this long and be TRUSTED all over Santa Clarita, now would we?

 

Getting to the point of what you can expect to pay:

  • Our price for a basic "short form" is $80-$115; this would be a 1040 tax return that uses the standard deduction with maybe one or two other small things such as student loan interest or an IRA deduction. To get this price, it does not necessarily have to be a 1040EZ, it just would be a simple and straightforward 1040 tax return that a Ez Tax preparer can do in 15-20 minutes.
  • Our price for a basic "long form" with Itemized Deductions on Schedule A, for example if you are a homeowner and use your mortgage interest as a deduction, is $150. According to a study by the National Society of Accountants, the average fee for a tax return using Schedule A, Itemized Deductions was $229 last tax season--so as you can see, we are ready to beat the competition's prices by more than $75 every single Schedule A tax return that we prepare.
  • If you are a business owner or have rental property, stock trades, property sales, or other "expert level" tax preparation, you are looking at a price more in the neighborhood of $175 and up. A simple Schedule C is $80, so if you have standard deduction and a simple Schedule C, it would be around $160 ($80 plus $80 for Schedule C). A more complex tax return you're looking from $250 - $500 typically, if you have some real stuff going on.

 

Also please note that all of our quoted always include both federal and state tax return preparation, electronic filing, and direct deposit of your tax refunds directly to your bank account.

 

In this economy, we know that every single dollar counts and that's why we work so hard to keep our prices for tax preparation the most affordable in the industry bar none and that's why we take joy in consistently and mercilessly beating the competition's prices by $50-$200 per tax return.

 

In addition, please also note that we are open all year in case you have any questions or problems, and we often charge very little or nothing for our off-season help to existing tax clients, so keep that in mind when you are comparing prices and ask yourself if "the other place" is going to give you that!
