Tax Preparation

Our accounting firm will professionally and efficiently prepare any income tax return that your business requires. While we specialize in individuals, we also prepare small business, partnership, corporate, and nonprofit tax returns. In addition to Minnesota state returns, we file hundreds of part-year & non-resident tax returns as well. Every year, we prepare tax returns for 20+ states and electronically file to all of them. If you just need to file for a MN rent or property tax rebate (M1PR) we can do that as well. See our bookkeeping section for any payroll, sales tax or unemployment liability returns that you also need completed. Our accountants are available all year for appointments, but we also complete hundreds of dropped-off and mailed-in tax returns.

We will electronically file your income tax return and directly deposit your refund free of charge. Electronically filing tax returns is very advantageous to the taxpayer. We will know within a day or two if the IRS has accepted the return and your refund will likely come within 10-14 days instead of 4-6 weeks. Although the IRS has inserted additional safeguards against identity theft that may delay your refund, 90% of refunds are still expected within 21 days.

Our office is open all year long. It is easy to contact us if you have a question or for that last minute tax return copy needed to refinance or purchase a house.
