When someone is
looking for a new tax preparation firm there is always a degree of
uncertainty. They are venturing into the unknown. The first thing that they
want to find out is whether this firm is capable of handling the type of tax
problems that they normally have. Rex Crandell has personally prepared
thousands of tax returns, and he feels that he is well qualified to handle
most tax problems. If there is a tax problem that he does not feel qualified
in handling, he will let you know and refer you to a law firm that can handle
the situation. This would be rare. Normally he handles most every type of tax
problem that anyone could imagine and some that they did not even know
existed. He has been doing tax preparation since 1976, so he has solved more
than his share of tax problems on a daily basis.
We are often asked:
Will the person that I initially talk to in your firm pass me off to another
person in the firm that I did not select? With our firm that would be hard to
do since Rex Crandell does all of the income tax interviews and oversees the
processing of every tax return that goes through the office. Rex Crandell
personally signs every tax return that we process. In short, the Rex Crandell
firm is a small professional services provider business, and each client is
important to us. We work with our clients as friends on a first-name basis.
What do we charge
for tax preparation? This is a commonly-asked question. Our fees are based on
the time required by the staff members assigned to the engagement, plus
out-of-pocket costs (including computer processing charges), according to our
minimum fee schedule that is printed at the beginning of each year.
Will we help you pay
the lowest tax that is legally possible? Yes. We do our best to help our
clients lower their taxes. If a question arises interpreting tax law, and a
conflict exists between taxing authorities’ interpretation of the law and
other supportable positions, we will use our professional judgment in
resolving these issues. Whenever possible, Rex Crandell will resolve the
issues in your favor.
We are not looking
for the one-time client or the one-time project. For each client that we
serve for the first time, it is our intention to build a lasting professional
relationship that will last for the next ten to fifteen years or more. In fact,
it is becoming increasingly common for us to work for the adult children of
We hope this memo
answers many of the questions that you may have about our firm. We look
forward to working with you and solving your technical processing needs.
