Tax Preparation

How we can help you

Preparing your own income tax return can be a task that leaves you with more questions than answers. According to a study released by the US Government’s General Accounting Office last year, most taxpayers (77% of 71 million taxpayers) believe they benefited from using a professional tax preparer.

Whether we like it or not, today’s tax laws are so complicated that filing a relatively simple return can be confusing. It is just too easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled. Even if you use a computer software program there’s no substitute for the assistance of an experienced tax professional. We follow a proven process to help get the most out of your experience with Molen & Associates for your tax preparation needs.

Here’s What You Get

A personal interview with one of our tax professionals to uncover and discuss all deductions to which you are legitimately entitled.
Your tax return will be checked and rechecked by our staff and computer software identifying potential problems the IRS may look at more closely and reviewing the math to limit IRS contacts.

Your tax return can be filed electronically so you will get a refund back quicker.

Our tax professionals will show you how to adjust your payroll withholding to get more money back each week. Why give the IRS an interest free loan for up to 16 months?

We will show you potential deductions to limit your tax liability for next year.

Books a Mess? No problem!

If you own a small business and haven’t kept up your bookkeeping, don’t worry. We can help you. We’ll prepare your bookkeeping for the year and prepare a full Schedule C, as well as your personal income tax return. Then we’ll help you set up an easy system that allows you to keep your books in tip-top shape next year. 

Tailored to You

We aren't your average tax firm. We specialize in helping you maximize your tax situation and live more comfortably.

Education Focused

We guarantee you will learn something new. If you are looking for an average experience, we probably aren't the firm for you.

Relationship Based

We started business 40 years ago out of the Molen's home and to this day, we still treat our clients like family.
