About Us

Same as last year pricing for clients

image2

We offer income tax preparation for same as last year pricing for clients who return year after year. 

My father once told me that he used a tax professional because it was less stressful and he figured it saved more than it cost. 

While anyone can hang out a shingle to prepare taxes, only a CPA, EA, or Attorney can represent taxpayers before IRS Appeals or Collections. All tax returns are prepared by a CPA or EA.

We charge by the form. Our fees continue to be around 40% less than published average fees for income tax preparation in Montana. 

 Prior to proposed assessment of taxes, penalties, or interest, the same CPA and EA help guide you through an examination.  

 In the event an examination results in proposed assessment of taxes, penalties, or interest, our clients have an opportunity to discuss or negotiate estimated charges for continued representation by the same CPA and EA. 

CPA/PFS & EA

Income tax preparation is by someone authorized to represent you in tax resolution before IRS Appeals & Collections.

James C Wangerin, CPA/PFS and Walter A Wangerin, EA filed a claim against the IRS for representation fees for tax resolution work. The IRS paid our representation fees. Even though we were representing our client without charge, the IRS valued and paid for our representation time at the rate of $200 per hour. 

James C Wangerin, CPA/PFS (Jim) has over 33 years of experience.

Walter A Wangerin, EA (Andy) has over 10 years of experience.
