Seller does not have the ability to separate tax fees from other services provided until they go through each invoice. That can be accomplished and provided after an introductory call and both parties agree to move forward. The fees above will include bookkeeping, write-up, etc. One client is large with over 30 state returns. The top 5 clients generate roughly $125,000.

Most clients will drop-off and mail their tax documents for return completion, but a few like to come in for an appointment. Almost all client interaction is handled on the phone with a few via email.
