 NEW FOR 2013 TAX RETURNS

You now have the ability to use our “Calculating” Tax Form to prepare your 2013 Tax return.
You will find this new form under the “Forms” section of this website, OR you can sign into our secure website using a unique PURL which will be sent to you in January.  By signing into this website, the calculating form will include any credits (estimated payments and credit carry forwards from prior years) that you have on your account.
To use the calculating form, simply enter the required information in each of the BLUE sections and our system will automatically calculate your tax return for you. Upon completion, print the form and mail to our office, along with your W-2s and all other income schedules. Do not forget to include your payment, as payment in full is expected on or before April 15th.
