Q:

I have the basic return with the only write off being mortgage credit. Does this dictate that I need Schedule A, thereby almost doubling the cost by adding the $30 extra?

A:

Hi Rod. Not sure what exactly you mean by mortgage credit. Are you talking about mortgage interest deduction? If so, the choice between standard and itemized deductions will depend on the total amount of interest paid and many other factors. Taxpayers itemize deductions if it benefits them vs. a standard deduction. We will charge an extra for Schedule A. This is our pricing policy. Hope this helps.

Q:

Is there an added cost if I have to file for 2 states? DC and VA. Also, are there any other hidden cost that will be added to the $49? I am single and I have to file for DC and VA. I am looking to buy your services because I have a Form 1098-T that I am not sure how to input (not sure if I am qualified). Thank you!

Jon W.  asked on  Feb 2, 2013

A:

Hello Jon! The deal includes one state return, so your second state will be extra $30-$35. There are no "hidden" costs, everything will depend on the complexity of your return. The Fine Print clearly says that the deal covers Form 1040 with the standard deduction and one state return. All other forms or extra state returns will be charged extra. It is a full disclosure and nothing is hidden. Give us a call to get a rough estimate of your total. Have a nice weekend!

Q:

Hi! this looks a great deal. We're filing jointly/married and think that there will be no need for Schedule A. However, we did do an IRA Rollover (no tax liability) during 2012 and possibly have some educational expenses that can be used to counter some educational-related income (e.g., stipends and a scholarship). I know we cannot do the 1040EZ (because of the IRA rollover), but will we be able take advantage of your $79 married/jointly filing deal? Thanks! K & M Alexandria

Kate P.  asked on  Feb 2, 2013

A:

Hello Kate! Your educational expenses will probably qualify you for one of the educational credits, and it will require a separate form to report it on. This form will be extra $20-$25. You are right it is a great deal, and even in your circumstances, you should take advantage of it. Have a nice weekend!

Q:

I don't know the specific schedules that we need to use, but my wife and I own a rental property (house) in another state, so we would have to file tax returns for 2 states, in addition to requiring the schedules appropriate for expenses/income for the rental property. How much extra, approximately, would you estimate this to be?

A:

Please reach out to their offices directly at (703) 232-1599 for more information.

A:

Thank you Marty for taking care of this. The short answer (without seeing your paperwork) is that you need to file Schedule E for your rental property, which varies between $45 and $85 depending on volume of data entry and state of your record-keeping. A second state return would be $30-$35, except for NY and CA (see Fine Print).

Q:

Can I mail last year's return, this year's info, talk with you by phone if you have questions, and get the final returns mailed to me? Or must I visit your office?

timothy l.  asked on  Jan 31, 2013

A:

Hello Timothy! There is absolutely no requirement for a face-to-face meeting. As a matter of fact, I can set you up on our secure Client Portal where you can upload all your documents in PDF, JPEG, XLS or any other format. In addition, you can use mail, fax or e-mail to pass your documents to us. All final client-approved returns get e-filed unless one of the exceptions applies. The client copies of returns are mailed to clients. Hope this helps!

Q:

How much extra would I pay if I also need schedule A, C and D? If you can beat H&R Block's price, I'll buy. Thanks.

Rita Z.  asked on  Jan 31, 2013

A:

Hello! Schedule A by itself will be $30 extra. Schedule C varies from $50 to $150 depending on complexity, and Schedule D comes with Form 8949 and the cost largely depends on volume of your trades. If you are a little more specific, I can quote you Sch.C and D prices more accurately.
