Free Electronic Filing for both New York and Federal Returns!!

Last day to file a 2011 return electronically will be Oct 14, 2012.

I operate two locations  BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

I am taking appointments for the 2012 tax season (2011 returns) now. I can still do returns for refunds for   2009 and 2010. You cannot get refunds for 2008 or before, but the IRS can get you.

The first appointments started Start  Jan 20, 2012 for 2011 returns.

Give your name, telephone number and when you can be reached at that number. Repeat your phone number. Some phones produce horrible voice quality. If  I can't understand you, I can't call you back.

When I call you to set up an appointment I will ask you about your situation to estimate how long your appointment will take.
The average time to do a tax return (both state an Federal) is 45 min.
