Frequently Asked Questions

Daniel J. Brown, CPAQ. Are you accepting new clients?
A. Yes. Call 630 629-4400 to schedule an appointment.

Q. Do you accept appointments?
A. Yes. In fact, appointments are required.

Q. What are your hours?
A. Appointments can be scheduled from 9:30 am to 7:30 pm Monday through Thursday and 9:30 am to 3:30 pm Friday and Saturday.

Q. What do you charge?
A. Our fee for tax preparation depends on the complexity and time required to prepare the return. Individual income tax returns start at $200 for both the federal and state returns. Most returns are more complex, and the fee for individual returns usually ranges between $250 and $450. Included in the preparation process is an in-depth interview or a review of materials sent to us.

Q. Do you offer free consultations to prospective clients?
A. The tax preparation process includes an in-depth interview in which the client's circumstances and concerns are discussed. This interview is included in the tax preparation fee. Furthermore, from May 15 to January 15, we offer a second look at a prior tax return for no charge.

Otherwise, consulting is charged at $150 per hour prorated to the time actually spent. If the client chooses to have tax returns prepared, one half of this fee is applied toward tax preparation charges.

Q. Will I get a bigger refund or pay less if you prepare my tax return?
A. We often show our clients how they can reduce their taxes in the current year or what they can do to reduce future taxes. Many times, when we review a return prepared by someone else, we see that the client can amend it and get a refund. However, we can make no promises in this regard. We can assure you that your return will be prepared in compliance with the law and that we will do all we can so you will pay as little tax as possible
