PERSONAL TAX SERVICES

Personal Tax Service


We take time to get to know each of our clients in order to provide them the best service at competitive rates. We spend time to learn about the new tax codes every year, so you can get the lowest tax liability, or the highest refund. We will make sure that you get every deduction and credit that you are entitled to. We offer year-round tax preparation and planning services at a rate that will fit your budget. You can count on Low Cost Tax Man, Tax Services to make tax time less stressful for you. 


Are you tired of the impersonal approach of the big tax preparation chains? Tired of being shuffled in and out in 15 minutes? We discuss your situation and try to find every deduction and credit you are legally entitled to.

Our clients usually come to us when they have a change in their circumstances. We can help. Did you buy or sell a house? Did you buy a car or recently move to the area? These changes can all result in deductions that can reduce your tax bill and increase your refund.


We are much less than the big chains and our fees are tax deductible! The most expensive way to have your taxes done is to do them yourself!

Haven’t filed taxes for several years?

No big deal!  We’re experts at bringing you up to speed.

Want your refund fast?
We offer E-filing at no extra charge.  Ask us for details.

Don’t leave money on the table!
We go over your situation and find every deduction that you’re qualified for. Studies show 89% of taxpayers don’t get all the deductions!


Understanding the tax law and its application is a core part of our business. Almost every transaction today, whether personal or business, has an element of "what's the tax implication?" in it. As tax professionals, we develop a great deal of knowledge about each one of our clients to get a comprehensive picture of their entire tax situation. This allows us to maximize efficiencies and minimize taxes. We try to eliminate as much of the complexity in the tax process as possible for you. Our goal is to make you keenly aware of the one or two key elements that create the optimum tax results.
