How much will tax preparation cost me?
At Tax Center Plus, we charge by the form for tax preparation. Your tax return fees will be based upon which forms must be completed and the complexity level. The complexity of your return will vary depending on several factors such as home ownership, ownership of a small business, children etc….. Our prices are very reasonable, and we will work to make this experience of tax preparation easy for you.

What is e-filing and how do I do it?
A great alternative to mailing your tax return is to electronically file your return. The benefits of e-filing provide a fast refund (as little as 10 days as compared to 6 weeks if you file by mail), proof of filing, improved accuracy and “file now, pay later.” (If you owe taxes, you can file early and pay any balance due by April 15)
What if I want to do my own taxes, can you e-file them for me?
Yes! e-filing is a simple way to get your refund much faster than mail-in. Simply bring in your completed return and we will be happy to e-file it for you. The E-file fee depends on the number of forms you have.

When will my tax return be ready?
Tax Center Plus will need about one week to complete your tax return. We carefully review it for accuracy and logic so that you can rest assured that it has been prepared correctly.

Your refund will be direct deposited into your banking account, or you can receive a check from the IRS.

Yes, along with the information above for an individual tax return, you also need:
- Total income received from the business
- Total expenses, listed by category
- Copies of all payroll reports for both Federal and state agencies
- Copies of all assets purchased during the year, showing date, item and amount paid
- To claim “office in home” deductions, you should have the total square feet of the house, and the total square feet of the area used for the business.
- Expenses should include utilities and rent paid.
I’ve heard about the EIC credit. What is it and how do I qualify?
The federal Earned Income Credit (EIC) is a tax credit for people who work and have earned income below a certain limit. Tax credits reduce the amount of tax owed and may constitute a refund. The amount that you can earn is based on filing status and whether or not you have “qualifying” children. You can still
take the EIC credit even if you do not have children, but your income must be below a certain limit.
