Capital Tax Services started in 1979 as Laich Tax Services in Cleveland, Ohio and has locations in Maryland, Virginia, California, and Florida. The company has grown significantly in the past 10 years from about 300 clients in 2005 to nearly 2,000 clients today. We believe our growth is the result of several special features cited below:
- Licensed Tax Preparers – Taxes are complicated and the tax code is 73,954 pages long. Surprisingly, most tax preparers at the major tax firms are unlicensed. Meanwhile, all of the tax preparers at Capital Tax Services are licensed as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) or as an Enrolled Agent (EA) or have at least five years of income tax experience. Our licensed tax preparers are required to take at least 24 hours annually of continuing education to stay proficient with tax changes each year.
- Price – According to the IRS, the average taxpayer pays $270 for completion of a tax return. At Capital Tax Services, the average cost per tax return is about $125, which is 53% below the costs of major tax companies.
- Time – The IRS estimates the average tax payer spends about 8 hours preparing a non-business tax return. Our tax professionals can complete your return in about one hour and they will look for deductions and credits to maximize your refunds.
- Other Services – Capital Tax Services offers free tax consultation throughout the year and free tax advice while we prepare your return. We also have preparers who are fluent in Spanish, Chinese, and Thai.
