Annual Filing

Tired of paying too much for your tax prep at a large franchise or CPA firm? Our affordable tax prep services are right-sized just for you. We’ll quote you an upfront flat fee custom to your particular tax situation and we’ll stick to it! No per form or surprise add-on charges.

We have all the tools needed to handle your tax returns remotely! Sign up for our secure portal to get started. Keeping your confidential information private and secure is important to us which is why we have a “portal or paper” policy. You can either use the secure portal to upload your documents or drop off/send your tax paperwork to our office. We do not accept emailed documentation, even if it is password protected. Email is not safe and does not protect your information.

  • Secure Client Portal – Your one-stop shop for all your tax information. Use the portal to upload your documents, retrieve an electronic copy of your completed return, email/message us sensitive or personal information, and ask questions.
  • Pay-from-refund – use your federal refund to pay your tax prep fee. Our partner bank will direct deposit your federal refund and send your tax prep fee directly to Palm Tree Consulting. Please note: your refund must be more than your tax prep fee in order to qualify.
  • Paperless delivery – Save the environment with our paperless delivery option. Sign all your tax return documents electronically, pay your invoice online and received a PDF copy of your return through our secure portal.

Amended Returns

Ever get that ‘stray’ form in the mail after you filed your taxes for the year?  Returns can be amended for federal and state up to 3 years after you filed the original return.  There are many reasons why you may need to file an amended return:

  • You received new information that should have been included on your original return
  • You discover something was reported incorrectly on your original return
  • You discover tax laws were not applied correctly on your original return
  • You found additional deductions/credits that should have been included in your original return
  • A retroactive change in tax law occurred, such as a court ruling on disputed laws

Regardless of why you need to amend your return, we can help!
