Individual Tax Return Pricing
Personal 1040 Tax Returns
Starts at $150
Pricing is dependent on the complexity of the tax return. Our individual income tax preparation pricing starts at $150 and includes the Illinois state tax return. If you are eligible for the earned income tax credit, education credits, capital gains, dividends, side business, rental properties, foreign tax accounts, or other scenarios then the price reflects that extra complexity.
Tax Return Preparation
Your federal and state income tax return will be professionally prepared, reviewed and e-filed. We will aim to achieve the most beneficial tax outcome and help you with strategies for next year to lower your tax liability while keeping you compliant.
Check Prior Year Returns
We will review your last three years of tax returns for any missed deductions, credits or unnecessary taxes. For example, we recovered $6,700 for one client and $5,000 for another client – that was just a singular year. In most cases, you don’t even know on what you’re missing out.
Free Unlimited Consultations

We’ll handle correspondence you receive from the IRS or state agencies and respond on your behalf. We will fight to waive all penalties and respond to correspondence audits.
