Competitive Fee Structure
… but if you are looking for the cheapest fees, or obesssing about your correct pronouns or global warming, you are probably best served by looking elsewhere…
… in addition, due to an extremely busy workload, if it is absolutely critical to have a rapid turnaround in your work & you are inclined to make repeated calls to check on the status, someone else would probably suit you better …
New tax clients are expected to provide copies of their last 3 years of tax returns and provide permission to contact prior accountant to resolve any issues, if necessary.
Regretfully, I am unable to accept new clients who have unfiled prior-year’s tax returns, who are not current with all prior tax obligations, are involved in any marijuana-related business ventures, use marijuana, have any income from gambling, are experiencing extreme financial difficulties, are personal-injury attorneys or copyright or patent trolls. Newly formed businesses are frowned upon as well.
Though not required, supporters of President Donald J. Trump, the National Rifle Association & clients who are cheerful, optimistic and NOT easily offended are generally preferred.
Absolutely NO LAZY, ECONOMICALLY ILLITERATE, GODLESS, RIOTING, KNEELING, SOCIALIST VANDALS allowed beyond the front door, however!
Due to the alleged gang activity and drug dealing at the nearby Chelsea Manor Apts. & 7-11 Convenience Store, I would personally recommend "packing some heat" while in this area (and perhaps Penn Square Mall as well). Some believe the OKC Police Dept. has become wussified and are too intimidated to confront these gangbangers and put them behind bars where they rightfully belong. "Talk on the Street" seems to be that the wussification emanates from an extremely weak & naive Mayor who purportedly suffers from a severe case of "Low T," a weak City Manager, a new, effeminate-looking Police Chief, who refuses to enforce our nation's immigration laws & a Ward 6 Council Girl who took her Oath Of Office using a book on Marxism.

The NRA extends our deepest sympathies to the victims and the families of the White Settlement, TX church shooting. We would also like to thank Jack Wilson for his quick and heroic actions. Jack is a hero. Indeed, America is a great country because of selfless patriots like Jack and others like him. Thank you, Jack. Your courage saved many lives.

✅ An #ArmedCitizen saved multiple lives last night in #OKC. We hope this serves as a wake-up call for @GovMaryFallin, who just two weeks ago vetoed a constitutional carry bill. Just another example of how the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. #2A pic.twitter.com/kPRjpiyeow— NRA (@NRA) May 25, 2018

This is America. We eat meat, we say the pledge of allegiance, we love guns, we hate socialism, we stand for the flag, we kneel for the fallen and to praise God. If any of that offends you, too bad. #TeamTomi #Defend2A #gunrights

(Let us return to the time before the “Loudmouth Communist Snowflakes” and the less than competent financial administrators arrived on campus)
