There are a number of factors that make Mantrom Tax Service stand out when compared to other firms.
Your Taxes Get Our Full Attention
Unlike a CPA or law firm, taxes are our only business. We are customer-service oriented, available year-round, responsive, and personalized. We look for tax advantages that the client may not be aware of. Come and see us where “Your Taxes are Our Business.”
We Provide Electronic Filing
E-filing is a safe and efficient way to file your tax return. When you e-file you lessen the chances of your return being lost or having transcription errors. Also, you will receive your refund faster, usually 7 to 10 day turn-around if you choose direct deposit or an additional week if you prefer a check. Paper filing (mailing your return) usually takes 10 weeks or more.
Our Services Are Provided at a Fair Price
We price tax returns “by the form” so there are no surprises. We charge an hourly fee to do bookkeeping and organizing if a client comes in with grossly unorganized materials. We also charge for client-specific research that is out of the ordinary, such as determining the basis of an obscure or long-held stock. We charge hourly for representation, tax planning advice, and general tax consultation. Our prices are generally less than the franchises and most public accounting firms.
We Are Tax Professionals
All of our tax preparers are college graduates and have specialized training in income tax preparation. All of our preparers are experienced in this type of work. Our tax professionals annually attend a national tax conference and take a two-day tax update course.
Dave Mantrom is an Enrolled Agent
Enrolled Agents (EA’s) are licensed by the IRS not only to prepare tax returns but to provide tax advice and to represent taxpayers at all administrative levels of the IRS. EA’s must pass a two-day comprehensive exam given by the IRS. To maintain EA status, there is mandatory continuing education required each year. As an EA, Dave has special privileges with the IRS that an unenrolled preparer does not have.
Jennifer Coupal is a Certified Public Accountant
CPA’s have the same privileges with the IRS on tax matters as do EA’s.
We Have Payment Options
Generally, payment is due upon completion of tax returns. We accept Cash, Check, Visa, Master Card, American Express and Discover.
