3. Tax Preparation Begins –
Clock starts ticking
Once all required documents have been received, your tax preparation will begin.

If we are waiting on tax documents, you will be emailed every 7 days. We require all documents to be received by March 31stst to guarantee timely filed returns.
4. Review, Finalize & Approve
Once tax returns are ready for review, we send a secure copy via email. We will request a detailed review of all name(s), address(s), identification number(s) and reported tax return information before approval to efile. If changes are requested, an updated email with final returns will be emailed for final approval.
If you have questions or comments regarding your returns, you can email those directly by replying to the email containing your tax return. We ALWAYS want you to understand your tax returns and feel 110% comfortable about the information being filed. Therefore, a 30 minute detailed review of your taxes via remote meeting or at my Ontario, Ca location will be provided if necessary.
5. Pay, Sign & Deliver
Once you review and approve your tax returns, you are in the homestretch. Just complete these final 3 steps and you are all set!
- Pay tax prep fees electronically. Full payment is required before efiling.
- Give me permission to e-file your taxes. I will provide your authorization forms via secure email from RightSignature which will allow electronic signing of your tax forms. This package will include your tax preparation engagement letter and e-file authorization forms for federal/state tax returns.
This email will be received AFTER CONFIRMATION of no additional changes. For joint filers, 2 emails will be provided that require separate electronic signatures for each taxpayer.
- Read, sign & date your E-Signature forms no later than 1 day after you receive E-Signature email; E-Signature forms over 48 hours will need to be resent & will delay e-filing of your tax returns.
*We utilize RightSignature, a company that meets the IRS Electronic Signature Guidance for Forms 8879s.
Within 3 days after e-filing, you will receive a confirmation email from our tax team advising you that your tax returns have been Acknowledged, Received & Accepted from the appropriate tax agencies.
