One of the several kinds of tax preparation services offered at AA Tax & Accounting Services, LLC is individual tax preparation. While some people have simple taxes which are easy to prepare on their own, things can become complicated as we become older and have a more diverse portfolio. Some instances when you will want to choose to work with our accounting firm are:

We also offered tax auditing services, to help protect you when you are being audited by the IRS. If the audit is a result of a mistake on our end, we offer our tax resolution services for free.

Nonprofit Tax Returns

Transparency is important when it comes to nonprofits so donors know they can trust that their donations go to what is expected, which is why it is important to have a third-party do the accounting for your nonprofit.

In the case of those government grants and some foundations, you may be required to have a third-party audit your nonprofit’s use of the granted funds. Our accounting firm can help you through the whole process as well as helping your nonprofit file taxes.

Sales And Use Tax Returns

If you are selling taxable goods, whether you are a craft fair seller or own a thriving shop, you will need to file sales and use tax returns. Sales and use taxes vary from state-to-state, so to stay on top on your business’ taxes, you will want to work with our accounting firm, as we can help you determine what counts as taxable and how much you owe.

Heavy Highway Use Tax Returns

For heavy vehicle operators, classified as weighing 55,000 pounds or more, you are required to file heavy highway use tax returns. There are specific forms you will need to have filed and your employer identification number. But that’s the easy part.

Depending on when you started operating your vehicle, you are eligible to have that filing season prorated. There are also concessions made for owners who operate second-hand vehicles. For help sorting through all of this, you should work with our accountant.
