Before You Begin

in the questionnaire below, we ask only general questions regarding your work in the United States and abroad, and your business, rental and investment income. The only identifying information we request is your name and email address. If you are a foreign national and not a permanent resident, we must know your visa history and the number of days you were present in the United States for at least the last three years, so you should have your passport and travel dates handy. For a general menu of our fees for various forms see our General Fees Per Form.

There are potentially 87 short screens of questions - but don't panic - virtually nobody is required to answer that many questions. You are only presented with the screens relevant to you, so you will likely see only a fraction of the 87 screens. The survey is shorter for US citizens and residents, and longer for foreign nationals with work visas. The completion time is anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes, depending on your situation. Finally, if you don't see a question below asking for your name, it means the server is just down temporarily. Please check back.

Let's Get Started With Your Quote Request

If you must leave the form before you submit it, your answers should be saved in your browser. Please be sure to answer each question carefully so that we can properly determine your best filing strategy. The correct answer to each question is critical for us to properly determine the tax forms you are required to file and whether you are potentially eligible for treaty benefits. If you are a foreign national and would like to determine whether you are classified as a nonresident alien or a resident alien, see Your Residency Status Questionnaire before you start.

Oh, and one more thing - Don't hit the "PREVIOUS" link. Because of the conditional logic of the form, this will probably create an error message and it will be necessary to start again.

 

Special Notice About Extensions for Individuals

The Internal Revenue Service has automatically extended the federal income tax filing and payment due date for individuals from April 15 to May 17 this year. This extension also applies to state returns.

However, we will not be able to complete your return by the May 17 due date. If you accept our quote, we will complete your return as soon as possible after receiving your information. If you are a continuing client, we will file an automatic 5-month extension for you.

This gives you until October 15 to file your tax return and avoid the 5% per month failure to file penalty. It will not, however, prevent the failure to pay penalty of 1/2% per month and interest of 3% per annum from accruing on any unpaid balance. 

Of course, if you have a refund coming, there are no penalties to worry about and the IRS will pay you interest. If you are a nonresident alien with no wage income in the U.S., or if you are a U.S. citizen or resident living outside the U.S. on May 17, you are granted an automatic extension to June 15 to file your return and pay your tax. 

If you're good with all of this, please proceed to request a quote.
