Welcome! We are currently working on Extensions

It is always our desire to set expectations and then meet or exceed them. In a world where someone’s word or a handshake doesn’t mean what it used to, we’ve always tried to stand apart from the crowd. 

 This year we find ourselves in an interesting predicament. Two tax prep firms have ceased doing business in Valencia County and one in Socorro, and we’ve seen a tremendous influx of returns so far this year. While that’s great for business, it’s hard on staffing and work flow. 

 We originally published our tax deadline date as March 26. This meant that if you got us your tax information by the deadline, we promised to have your return filed by April 17. We need to move that date up, and want to encourage anyone who hasn’t already brought in their taxes to do so right away.  We are going to make every effort to live up to the March 26 deadline, but it may simply be impossible. 

If we are unable to complete your return by April 17, we will file an extension for you and get the return completed as soon as possible. If you are expecting a refund, an extension is harmless. If you are expecting to pay, we will work with you to get an estimated balance due so that it can be paid on time. 

As always, if you have any questions, please give us a call. You are important to us, and we appreciate your business! 



For your convenience, our extended office hours for tax season 2017:
