Welcome to Your Taxlady!
We have over 30 years of experience. A certified QuickBooks Pro Advisor as well as a Certified Professional Bookkeeper and an Enrolled Agent. We can serve you with Top Notch Personal Service.
Many of our clients state that these value-added services are indispensable yet affordable and dependable. We are here year round!
Small Business Adviser “Your Taxlady” Keeping track of your bottom line so the government does not get it all!
Your Taxlady in Colorado cares about its clients, both great and small. If you are a single taxed individual or a self-employed person or small business, we have the background and knowledge to make it easier for you to file and keep on track of your finances and taxes. We care about you and we take pride in our attentiveness.
Our fees depend on the forms we use and prepare for you throughout the year and generally start at $85. We do not outsource any of our work and have a full staff of tax preparers, bookkeepers and payroll employees. We can cover homeowners and their property deductions on a Schedule A, a small self-employed business (even in-home) on a Schedule C with the quarterly tax preparation or the complicated Education Credit forms for college students. We know how to write off business expenses properly and to the letter of the law with all the new revisions constantly bombarding the business owner.
Usually I do most of the small business tax preparation myself annually, with an in-house proof reviewer to check my work for mistakes or missing discounts. We prefer to monitor your taxes throughout the year, especially if we can assist you in your bookkeeping or review status from time to time to make sure you are on track financially. We feel the earlier and more often, the better for you to stay on track and us to be organized. Since we also do payroll, we can set up QuickBooks online to do monthly or quarterly payroll and assist you in any needed quarterly deductions or tax payments. We cover all your bases for you so you can make money instead of being worried about what is due when and for how much.
Our clients can take advantage of unlimited calls, emails and contact and we do audits bill-out at a minimum of four hours for $300.00. We also send monthly email news, mail out quarterly updates and have a Facebook listing for more tips and ways to save you money.
Please contact me personally to set up a free consultation so we can further discuss your accounting and tax needs in detail to see if we “fit” with each other. I am looking forward to working with you in a long term, professional relationship.
I, Kathy Bylkas, am an E.A. or “Enrolled Agent” who is a Certified QuickBooks Pro Advisor in the Colorado area and have been owner of several successful accounting/tax preparer businesses the last twenty-five years in California, Oregon, Washington and now Colorado due mainly to my spouse’s job transfers. All of these businesses were profitable, respectable and part of the community I lived and served in for years at a time. We did then and now do still cater to small businesses and personal/business tax problem solving. Having had businesses in several states, I am up-to-date on all the rules, regulations and multitude of tax changes yearly.
I hope you’ll forgive me for being blunt.
I am Kathy Bylkas, I’m a EA and realize that you may not be used to seeing a tax professional talk like this. It’s not my intention to offend (I’m actually being very careful with my words–I am a tax professional, after all).
But I think you’ll agree that the times we’re currently facing require a little straight talk.
Here’s a certain truth: the State and Federal Government would love to have more of your hard-earned money in their accounts. Sure, even though it’s painful, none of us begrudge paying our legal and fair share of taxes. But the problem is that regular taxpayers, like you, are missing out on legal and safe deductions, to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars in unclaimed refunds every year!
As a tax professional, it truly breaks my heart, knowing that just a few thousand, or even a few hundred bucks for us “regular guys” out of that vast pool of overcharging could make a world of difference–and they are just sitting there, unclaimed! And with the economy we’re facing now…it’s essential that the “right” professional handles your taxes and other financial matters.
You see, all tax professionals are not the same. From the “discount” chains (notice the quotes) to classic accounting firms, most fly through tax season in a disorganized mess–bleary-eyed and hopped-up on caffeine. It’s no wonder that they treat you like a number and lapse into excuses and tax-talk. (I told you that I would be blunt.)
I’ve put more of my thoughts on these matters in free reports:
