Sending Your Documents

We provide nationwide tax preparation service and your ability to communicate with us is critical to everyone’s success. And your comfort level in sending sensitive and personal information is our top priority so we have implemented ways to safely and securely send your tax documents to us.

Client Portal

We have contracted with CPA Site Solutions to administer our Client Portal which provides secure, online document exchange. "OUR CLIENT PORTAL IS THE MOST SECURE CLIENT PORTAL AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET." Your data is protected in extremely secure environments. Most Client Portal vendors provide 5 or 6 layers of security. CPA Site Solutions, who hosts our Client Portal, protects you with  14 full Layers of Security. The Client Portal will allow you to securely upload your tax documents to our office. In addition, the Client Portal can be used to retrieve and review your tax return prior to e-Filing.

Once we get all your information, we will have a preliminary tax return for your review within 1-2 days. You will need to login to our secure Client Portal to view your return. After you approve your tax return and pay your invoice, we will e-File it on your behalf and make the final version available for download. Usually within 2-3 business days, you will get your tax refund directly deposited into your bank account.
