InK Tax Service
A CPA firm for the modern age.
It’s time to change the way you interact with your accountant.
We are a full service tax and accounting firm based online. What does that mean? You never have to step foot into our physical offices if you don’t want to. All transmission of information and communication can be done securely online.
When was the last time you went into the bank to get money out of your account? Do you really like going out of your way to drive to an office to give them your tax documents especially given the current environment with COVID-19? But maybe you put up with the inconvenience because you realize tax laws are complicated and constantly changing? We give you the convenience of online tax preparation without the need to understand tax laws, we do that for you. We spend a minimum of 40 hours a year on continuing education to keep up with the ever changing rules so you don’t have to.
We use a secure portal to send and receive all documents. But that does not mean you cannot fax or snail mail them to us if you prefer. We are happy to communicate in whatever form you like best, whether that is text, email, video conference, or a simple phone call.
Accountants can be stuffy. Some use jargon no one else understands and make you feel like there is only ONE way to do things (and it is not your way). We aren’t like that. We want to be sure all your tax questions are answered in a way that makes sense to you. Our goal is to customize your experience to meet your needs and preferences.
“I like InK Tax Service. My CPA is very well educated and informed; keeps up with all the new tax regulations and gets me the maximum deductions allowed. Also when I have needed direct personal contact, she has always accommodated me quickly by phone and email. This tax service is the best I have used in the past 40 years.”
“We have a business renting single family homes and started working with Irene over 15 years ago. We have always been impressed with her prompt and accurate preparation of our personal and business taxes as well as her valuable knowledge of real estate tax laws. She has always guided us in the best direction for our business and always returns our phone calls promptly. Now that her daughter has joined her, we feel like we’re getting a two-for-one deal! Their personalized service is so much better than working with large, corporate tax preparation companies. We will continue working with Irene as long as she’s in business.”

Taxes are our bread and butter. Our firm is composed of a CPA and an EA, both highly credentialed tax experts required to get many hours of continuing education each year, so you can be confident you’re getting the best service possible. We’re always happy to answer your tax questions with additional explanation in plain language. Plus we’re here all year round so if anything comes up, we’re only an email away.
Our firm prepares all types of business tax returns including Partnerships (LLCs), S Corps, C Corps, and Non-Profits. Running your own company is challenging, and we understand the importance of maximizing appropriate deductions. We can even help with advice during the year to help you structure your business and expenses advantageously.
There’s a lot of misinformation out there about reporting and taxing of virtual currency. This is made worse by how afraid of it a lot of tax preparers are. Since crypto payments have only recently become mainstream – i.e. Starbucks started accepting Bitcoin just last year – most users don’t realize they trigger a taxable event every single time they pay with crypto. Most small businesses that take crypto also may be unaware of the tracking and reporting requirements. We’re not afraid and we’re here to help.
Did you receive a 1099-K form for the first time this year and have no idea why? You’re not alone! It used to be that this form was only sent out to businesses that processed $20k or more in credit card transactions. IRS dropped that limit down to a miniscule $600. Did you sell a few personal items on eBay last year? Do you have a small Etsy shop? If so, chances are that 1099-K shows a much higher amount than your profit, but it needs to be reported on your tax return otherwise you’ll probably get a letter from IRS. Let us take care of this reporting headache for you.
