How does the process work?
Taxpayer can come in the office or call us if they are in the United States and receive a free estimate/quote on their refund. No personal information is needed. If the Taxpayer is satisfied with the estimate provided, Taxpayer will then go through the application process. They will be able to review all the documents before they are transmitted to the IRS. Once ALL documents are reviewed, and signed by the Taxpayer the return will be sent to the IRS awaiting Acceptance which can take up to 24 Hours. Once they have accepted the Return the Taxpayer can begin tracking their refund on the IRS website 24 hours from acceptance.
