HOW WE OPERATE.
As many of you know, my clients range from alderman, Chicago newscasters, multimillionaire’s in the retail space, surgeons, real estate investors, and more. Because of the type of clients that I serve, PRIVACY & SECURITY is required, which means that I am the only one that looks at client’s data, and I WORK ALONE ON ALL TAX FILES. I also don’t accept estimates & guesses on business taxes, which means that it takes longer to assist clients that haven’t done their bookkeeping throughout the year. I ask that you PLEASE BE PATIENT, as I’m unable to churn out tax returns like your local big chain tax location. Thank you.
