How much do you charge?
It varies. An individual who owns a house and makes a few trades in the stock market will cost $250.00-$350.00 for their income tax return to be prepared. Remember there are NO hidden fees for e-file, phone calls or Newsletters. You will never be placed with a secretary to take your information. You get personalized attention.
How do I schedule an appointment?
Appointments must be made. Since all returns are prepared in front of you, you must have all your data in hand before scheduling your appointment. We are usually running 1-2 weeks out. Appointments are available at night and during the day. Contact Ocean Tax Consultants LLC at 609-597-3232 to schedule your first appointment.
I own a Business. How often should I meet with my accountant?
Always a great question. If you own a business, you and your accountant should have personalities that mesh. After a face to face interview, we can determine what level of interaction and advice is required to meet your needs. Anywhere from monthly to annually can be appropriate.
What if I have a question throughout the year?
In general there is no charge for phone calls. We often receive calls from clients about Weddings, College, Deaths, Births and Divorce. Time is not an issue and we have spent hours on the phone with clients at no charge. However if a form must be prepared, we will notify the client in advance that there will be a charge for the service.
Do I need to use a particular type of software? Software at all?
No. We will support businesses on any type of accounting program. For instance, a general business may use Quickbooks. An attorney and a doctor may use completely different types of software.
If you don’t use software, our bookkeeper will input your data into the software of your choice.
