Tax Return Preparation and Planning

Barbara Willingham, EA, Ana Duke, EA, and James Duke, CTEC are experienced in all areas of tax preparation, including individual, small business, partnerships, corporations, estates, and trusts. In most cases your return is prepared during your comprehensive interview. We use the highest quality computers and software so that your return is complete, correct and timely.

The tax laws are very complex. We think you deserve to understand the laws that apply to you. We can walk you through the things you don't understand. Many clients like to come in and ask questions before they make a major decision such as selling an asset, drawing money from a retirement account, buying a home, etc.
