At Arave Tax Preparation we strive to earn your friendship, your trust and your business. I suggest we start by doing two things; first go to our “About Us” page and learn a little about the folks you are considering using for one of the most important tasks you face all year long! Second, please go to our “New Client” page and review the information you find there. You can fill out the form which gives us all the pertinent information we need to complete the demographic portion of your Form 1040. This will include your name, address, date of birth and social security number for yourself, your spouse and your children or other dependents. This can be emailed to us via our secure server which helps protect your private information. You can also scan and email your W-2s, 1099’s and other information using the same secure server. We do many taxes for people we have never met in person, using this secure method.
If you are local, we will look forward to meeting you in person. This meeting usually takes about two hours for a new client, sending in the New Client form can reduce this time considerably because we will already have entered the information into our data base. If you would prefer to simply call our office or send and email request for an appointment we can do that as well. Not everyone likes to use a computer or email! Of course we also utilize the good old US mail if that works better for you.
About our fees; last year our average client was charged about 20% less than other Mom and Pop preparers and up to 50% less than the “big box” locations. This is because we carry on the tradition of providing a great service for a fair price that made Dixies Tax a success over 53 years! Also, since we are a retired couple we have other income so this little business can be much more competitive than some of the others.
We appreciate the time you have spent on our website and, should you decide to utilize our services, look forward to making a new friend!
