As we approach the end of the year, it’s a time to reflect on all you’ve accomplished throughout 2022 and set new goals for 2023. For many people, taking control of their finances tends to be at the top of their list (year after year).

Whether you’re a proactive planner or a chronic procrastinator, one item you can check off your to-do list is finding a tax preparer to partner with. As both a CFP® and an Enrolled Agent, I pride myself on:

  • Having up-front and transparent pricing for all my services
  • Maintaining constant communication through the tax preparation process
  • Educating my clients on tax-saving strategies that align with their personal goals

Here is everything you need to know about tax preparation with AFP:

What’s the process?

AFP’s tax preparation process was designed to do all of the heavy lifting for clients. All you need to do is the following:

  • Opt-In: Let me know that you want to work together
  • Upload your documents: Scan/ take photos of your tax documents and securely upload them to my tax portal (using Intuit)
  • Review your returns: Look over your tax returns and electronically sign them (using DocuSign)
  • Pay your invoice: Pay online using your bank account or credit card (using AdvicePay)

Seems pretty simple? That’s because it is and should be!

What’s the cost?

I provide FREE consultations to everyone to review their situation. I’m happy to speak with you whether you are comparing options or have a complex tax scenario. You can book a call here.
