Professional Fees

2021 Billing Rates

At Taylor & Corder our aim is to keep fees as reasonable as possible while still being fairly compensated for our time and professional expertise. Our fees are calculated based on the amount of professional time spent on a project regardless of whether it entails tax return preparation, consulting, or research. Time is billed in one-tenth of an hour segments at the hourly billing rate of the professional working on your project. The fee for tax preparation may vary from year to year based on changes in your tax situation. Sometimes these changes are not readily apparent to you, our valued client.

 

Items that will increase your tax preparation fee:

• Requests for relevant information that was either omitted from the tax documents provided to us or left blank on the tax organizer that we provide.

• Not being responsive to our email requests for additional information or clarification of information, causes us to revisit the tax return several times. Multiple email requests or phone calls for information can be very time consuming, and as result increase fees substantially.

• Complexity arising from a transaction made during the tax year may require additional calculations, and/or research and consulting.

• Corrections made after return completion that were a result of inaccurate or incomplete information provided.

• We do not want to discourage you from contacting us with questions or from scheduling meetings with us. It’s important for us to be aware of events that might impact your tax situation. Plus, we enjoy our clients! Quick emails and phone calls with questions are complimentary (generally “quick” means something that can be answered in 5 minutes or less). Please be aware that phone, video conferencing, or in-person meetings are billed at our standard hourly rates per hour for returning clients. Initial consultation is billed at $200 for the first hour for new clients.
