Terms of Engagement for Tax Preparation Services
This information is provided to confirm and specify the terms of our engagement with you and to clarify the nature and extent of the services we will provide. In order to ensure an understanding of our mutual responsibilities, we ask all clients for whom returns are prepared to confirm the following arrangements.
We will prepare your federal and requested state income tax returns from the information which you will furnish to us. We will make no audit or otherwise verify the data you submit, although it may be necessary to ask you for clarification of some of the information. We will furnish you with questionnaires and/or worksheets to guide you in gathering the necessary information. Your use of such forms will assist us in keeping our fee to a minimum. Our responsibilities do not include preparation of any other tax returns that may be due to any taxing authority unless agreed upon by you and our agents and will render additional invoices for the time and expenses incurred.
This engagement pertains only to any tax year unless otherwise specifically stated and agreed upon in writing by both you and ATABS. Our engagement will be complete upon the delivery of the completed tax return to you. Unless you agree to have ATABS electronically file your tax return(s), it will be your responsibility to file the return(s) with the taxing authorities. In the event information is requested by either of the parties signing this return, that information will be furnished without obtaining the additional consent of the other party.
The law provides various penalties that may be imposed when taxpayers underestimate their tax liability. If you would like information on the amount or circumstances of these penalties, please contact ATABS and ask to speak with one of our licensed tax professionals.
It is your responsibility to provide all the information required for the preparation of complete and accurate returns. You should retain all the documents, canceled checks, and other data that form the basis of income and deductions. These may be necessary to prove the accuracy and completeness of the returns to a taxing authority. You have the final responsibility for the income tax returns and, therefore, you should review them carefully before you sign them.
Our work in connection with the preparation of your income tax returns does not include any procedures designed to discover defalcations or other irregularities, should any exist. We will render such accounting and bookkeeping assistance as determined to be necessary for the preparation of the income tax returns.
We will use professional judgment in resolving questions where the tax law is unclear, or where there may be conflicts between the taxing authorities, interpretations of the law or other supportable positions. Unless otherwise instructed by you, we will resolve such questions in your favor whenever possible.
In the event your returns are selected for review by the taxing authorities, any proposed adjustments by the examining agent are subject to certain rights of appeal. In the event of such a government tax examination, we will be available upon request to represent you and will render additional invoices for the time and expenses incurred.
Our fee for these services will be based upon the amount of time required at our standard billing rates, plus out-of-pocket expenses. All invoices are due and payable upon presentation.
If there are other tax returns you expect us to prepare, such as gift and/or property, please inform your ATABS Licensed Tax Preparer, Licensed Tax Consultant or CPA.
