Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to come to your office to have my tax returns prepared and filed?

In these busy times, we understand that it is sometimes hard to find time during the workday to physically come into our office to prepare your tax return. We are set up to receive your documents by e-mail, drop off or regular mail. Once we have completed your return, we can schedule a time for you to come in to review it, or we can set up a telephone conference if that is more convenient for you. Email us at suzanne@taxhelpnj.com to get the process going. 

 

Is my information safe to send to you over the internet?

Absolutely! We are highly protected with secure firewalls, so there is no chance of identity theft through our portal.  If you feel like you would rather drop off the doucments, we have a locked mailbox located in the parking lot behind our building.  This mailbox is protected by video surveillance and it is locked.
