Mark Center at Beauregard & Seminary
Our offices are conveniently located at the Mark Center office complex in west Alexandria, Virginia.  Our office hours are by appointment only. We have evening and weekend appointments available. 

As you've found us on the Internet, you're eligible for a 30% discount on our individual income tax preparation.  Our fee for individual income tax preparation is by the number of tax forms that you need, so the cost will vary depending on your situation. 

This year, a simple 1040 starts at $257, with a typical individual Federal & state return with itemized deductions, including the 30% discount, would be about $567.  That also includes free electronic filing, and the comfort of having a professional CPA prepare and sign your tax returns.  Additional tax forms or excessive research could increase that price. 

New for the 2015 tax year, we are now offering a FREE secure e-Signature service, so that you can review and sign your tax return via secure e-mail. 

Please see the information for scheduling an appointment, and a list of the information you'll need to bring with you.  Also included are directions for parking, or use the Mapquest link to get detailed directions from your location.
