In 2020, in order to best protect ourselves and our clients, we moved to a virtual-only model of tax preparation. Although the pandemic has passed, we still prefer remote appointments. Please contact us if you need an in-person appointment in Carbondale or Denver.
If you would prefer a video conference, we can use common applications such as Skype, Zoom, GoToWebinar, or Facetime.
There are many options for delivering your documents to us. The simplest method would be a digital transfer. Simply scan (or photograph) your pages, then email them to us. You can also make them available by placing the files in Dropbox or Google Drive (or some equivalent), then sharing a link with us (by email) with the file location.
Another option would be to mail us your documents. Please keep in mind that this can cause delays.
"Over and over again courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging one's affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everybody does so, rich or poor; and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands..." ~Judge Learned Hand, Commissioner v. Newman, (2nd Cir. 1947)
