After tax season, then what?
February 24, 2007 10:05pm CST
We have rented the office, gotten the computers, got the authorization for the electronic filing, signed up with HSBC so that we could offer superfast refunds and even signed up with a company so we could accept checks and credit cards. We are doing pretty good, we have gotten customers because we are the only tax service in the area. So, what else could we do after tax season to help pay the rent and phones? We have advertised for tax preparation, bookkeeping and money management. So far we have only done taxes. Any suggestions?

Bookkeeping and payroll is something every business needs and those are services you could maybe offer to local companies. You could also offer secretarial services etc. I offer my clients full service, i.e. I do everything that would normally be done in an office for some of them so they can concentrate on their business. Be flexible, don't overcharge and offer your services to the companies you would want to work for. Good luck to you. BTW: In my experience, tax season is never really over lol.

I agree that tax season is never over, I know we had customers coming in all year long when I managed an office for a tax service. I like the idea of offering secretarial services and payroll, though I haven't done payroll in 15 years. I am sure there is software out there that would make it really simple. Thanks for the advice.
