Income Taxes

At C-JAXN, one of our primary missions is to bring affordable income tax preparation reviewed by a licensed Certified Public Accountant (CPA) to everyone. This is based on the firm belief that the big box tax preparation firms and CPAs have in essence exploited the common man’s fear and loathing of taxes and the IRS to enable them to assess excessive tax preparation fees. Ask yourself this; why do these businesses typically not have set, published rates? Why is the fee preparation calculation a “black box” that at times seems based as much as what they think they can get away with as any kind of set business plan?

Tax preparation is a service like anything else and any competent firm knows going in how much time a return is going to take, and thus what a fair price would be. Our years of experience and developed processes have put us in a unique position to provide excellent and efficient tax preparation services at a reasonable price.
