ADTax Services

Tax Return Preparation For All Your Clients.

Includes FREE E-file. All states available.

For over 30 years I have been providing services for CPA ‘s, tax preparers, and attorneys who prepare tax returns for businesses and the general public. My career began in 1981 with Park Avenue Tax Return Service, Inc. based in New York City. The format was simple, preparer would fill out input sheets, our people would key data into computer, the program (located on mainframe computers at the time) would execute and create a print file with finished tax returns. In 2006 all that has come to an end because of e-file mandates.

That’s when I decided to take a chance and took this business to the next level. I am still in the services bureau environment, but now it is a full service for CPA’s & tax preparers. I still use data sheets for input purposes, but because of all the new technology and great software that was written specially for my service bureau purposes, all tax returns can be prepared, emailed, e-filed from the same computer station and you do not need to spend $2,500 – $5,000 for professional tax software to prepare tax returns. No tax preparation software for preparers required. You don’t have to spend hours on the phone with tech support to figure out what you are doing wrong and why you are not getting the result you desire. Your name will appear at the bottom of all tax returns that you prepare. You will see how easy and simple your tax season can be. All you need to do is TRY FREE OF CHARGE. That’s right, no charge on any tax return that you would like to sample. Do it NOW before next tax season rolls around.

I have been processing over 2,000 tax returns a year for my clients who love my service and swear by it. Just read the Testimonials from some of them to see how simple and easy their tax seasons have been.

IRS issued final regulations requiring paid tax return preparers to file a due diligence checklist


Starting Jan. 1: Tax Preparers Need to File Due Diligence Checklist with All Earned Income Tax Credit Claims

IR-2011-122, Dec. 20, 2011

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today issued final regulations requiring paid tax return preparers to file a due diligence checklist, Form 8867, with any federal return claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). This is the same form that is currently required to be completed and retained in a preparer’s records.

The due diligence requirement, enacted by Congress over a decade ago, was designed to reduce errors on returns claiming the EITC, most of which are prepared by tax professionals. The IRS created Form 8867, Paid Preparer’s Earned Income Credit Checklist, to help preparers meet the requirement by obtaining eligibility information from their clients.

Filing Deadline Extended to March 30 for Some Tax-Exempt Organizations


R-2011-120, Dec. 16, 2011

WASHINGTON — Tax-exempt organizations with January and February filing due dates will have until March 30, 2012, to file their annual returns, the Internal Revenue Service announced today.

The IRS is granting this extension of time to file because the part of the e-file system that processes electronically filed returns of tax-exempt organizations will be off-line during January and February. The agency stressed that the rest of the e-file system will continue to operate normally and urged all individuals and businesses to choose the accuracy, speed and convenience of electronic filing.

In general, the extension applies to tax-exempt organizations whose normal filing deadline is either Jan. 17 or Feb. 15, 2012. Ordinarily, these deadlines would apply to organizations with a fiscal year that ended on Aug. 31 or Sept. 30, 2011, respectively. The extension also applies to organizations that already obtained an initial three-month filing extension and now have an extended filing deadline that falls on Jan. 17 or Feb. 15, 2012. The majority of tax-exempt organizations will be unaffected by this extension because they operate on a calendar-year basis and have a May 15 filing deadline.

The extension applies to affected organizations filing Forms 990990-EZ990-PF, or 1120-POL. Form 990-N filers will not be affected. No form needs to be filed to get the March 30 extension.

In order to avoid receiving a late filing penalty notice, a reasonable cause statement should be attached to the tax return. If organizations receive late-filing penalty notices, they should contact the IRS so that these penalties can be abated. The IRS encouraged these organizations to consider either e-filing early — before the end of December — or waiting until March to file electronically.

Further details are in Notice 2012-4, posted today on IRS.gov.

IRS Commissioner Speaks


Prepared Remarks of Douglas H. Shulman, Commissioner of Internal Revenue, Before the IRS/George Washington University 24th Annual Institute on Current Issues in International Taxation, Washington, DC, Dec. 15, 2011  

Good afternoon and it’s good to be at the IRS/GW Annual Institute on Current Issues in International Taxation which is now one of the preeminent venues to talk about international tax issues. This is a very important dialogue for all of us who want a healthy U.S. tax system.

Today, I would like to talk about a new sensible and strategic approach to international tax issues. It brings into tight focus efficiency, effectiveness, working smarter and a real-time resolution of issues – which I am working to integrate and apply throughout the IRS’ operations – not just for international tax issues. » Read more..
