Client Care Package

Secure Your Financial Future with Molen & Associates

In the ever-evolving world of finance and taxation, peace of mind is priceless. At Molen & Associates, we understand the complexities and challenges that come with managing your tax affairs. That’s why we’ve crafted our exclusive Client Care Packages, designed to provide you with comprehensive support, protection, and growth opportunities throughout the year. Our tailored packages ensure that you’re not just prepared for tax season, but also equipped with the tools and expertise to thrive in all your financial endeavors.

Here are the facts:

The IRS sent out more than 14 million automated notices last year. When you receive a letter from the IRS, they will claim you owe them money or claim you didn’t report something properly, which you will have to defend, because with the IRS you are guilty until proven innocent. They have the power to levy your bank accounts and garnish your wages without a court order!

What is the Client Care Package?

The Client Care Package is Audit Protection for the tax returns that we prepare at Molen & Associates. With our Audit Protection Plan we’ll protect you from ever having to deal with the tax authorities by yourself in case you get a notice from the IRS. And if you are ever summoned to meet with an IRS agent in person, we’ll attend on your behalf! Isn’t that a relief?

For a small fee that’s added to your tax preparation invoice, we’ll shield and protect you from having to deal with the tax authorities by yourself in the event you get a notice from the IRS or state tax authorities. And if you ever have to meet with an agent in person, we’ll attend the meeting on your behalf. You don’t even have to go!

You have the option to “opt out” of the plan if you choose; otherwise, you can agree to the protection by paying the fee. But if you choose to “opt out” of the Client Care Package, you will be charged our usual hourly rates to handle any and all notices you receive from the IRS or State questioning items on your return.

Can I opt-out of this protection?

Yes, you can opt-out. However, without our Audit Protection Plan in place, receiving an audit notification will cost you anywhere from $3,500 to $10,000 and up to have a licensed tax professional defend you in an audit.

Would you go to court without a lawyer? Then why would you face the IRS without expert help?

Choose the Package That Fits Your Needs

Whether you’re an individual seeking to safeguard your tax identity or a business aiming for strategic growth, our Client Care Packages offer the perfect blend of security and advancement. With our expert team by your side, you can navigate the tax landscape with confidence. Embrace the convenience of having seasoned professionals handle IRS correspondence, represent you during audits, and offer strategic consultations to propel you towards your financial goals. It’s not just about compliance; it’s about achieving financial excellence.
