Transcripts:
If you need W-2 transcripts go to https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript. IRS transcripts do not show state withholding, so contact the Colorado Department of Revenue at (303) 238-7378 to request state W-2s so that we can also file your state taxes.

Accepted Tax Forms:
Please see below the forms we can prepare. Tax returns for years 2016 and older must be mailed in.

Self-Employed Taxpayers: 
We require you to complete our Self-Employment Tax Organizer before receiving services. We CANNOT HELP individuals with business expenses over $25,000, Depreciation, Home Office, or a Net Loss.
