You will then be able to upload any requested document like prior year tax returns and current year tax documentation. Signed copies of your engagement letter(s) and prior year tax return(s) will also be available here 24/7.
Step 4: We Prepare Your Return
After all requested information has been uploaded we will begin to prepare your return. We pride ourselves on both our efficiency and our throughness so as we review your information and prepare your return we will keep in contact with you via email and telephone to ask questions, clarify any details, or request missing information.
Step 5: Review Your Return & Sign Electronically
