Individuals update for COVID-19: Updates on filing deadlines, stimulus payments, office policies and more for individuals filing income tax returns (posted 4/6/2020)

JK Associates, LLC, offers a full line-up of all services an individual taxpayer will need. This includes all the forms and schedules typically filed by most of our clients — Schedules A, B, C (sole proprietors), D (investments) and E (rentals).

We offer tax planning including helping our clients with special situations, such as

  • retirement planning
  • understanding required distributions from retirement plans and the tax implications of those distributions
  • starting a business
  • divorcing or just divorced
  • stock options and restricted stock units
  • estate and trust returns
  • inheritances
  • getting the dreaded letter from the IRS or the state taxing authority

Among our clients:

  • Retirees
  • Doctors
  • Lawyers
  • Yoga teachers
  • Artists
  • College professors
  • Engineers
  • Pastors
  • Teachers
  • Realtors® and Real Estate Agents
  • Small business owners
  • Freelance writers
  • Investors
  • Dentists
  • Carpenters
  • Small business startups

We like to get to know our clients so they consider us a trusted source of help with all of their tax concerns — and they talk with us before they make what could be a costly mistake. In our first meeting with new clients, we take the time to review previous tax returns and ask lots of questions to help us prepare an accurate, current return. We will ask clients to complete a questionnaire about income and potential deductions. We also require you to sign an Engagement Letter. This spells out our responsibilities to you as well as your responsibilities in helping us prepare an accurate return for you.

Our standard is that every tax return is treated with the same care and concern that we use in our own returns. That means that if something appears to be wrong or missing, we’ll contact you. We get to know our clients, learning about their lives to identify possible tax issues or opportunities. We stay current on the rules and will work to get you the largest honest refund possible. We won’t fill your head with a lot of confusing jargon, and we won’t put you into a position that we cannot defend. We’ll keep your data secure. And we’ll do all of this at a fair price.

For our prior year clients, in case you missed it, here is Karen’s annual tax season letter: GOOD BAD UGLY
