Taxfyle is designed for both consumers and accounting
firms; connecting consumers with tax professionals who
will prepare and file their taxes on demand. Taxfyle is an
excellent alternative to do-it-yourself tax applications
that put the preparation burden on the taxpayer alone by
combining on-demand tax preparation capability with experienced tax practitioners to create a unique application.
Consumers interested in using Taxfyle simply answer a
series of questions. Once the questions are answered, the
customer receives a quote for the tax preparation services.
Taxfyle will also match customers with a tax professional.
Once that match has been facilitated, customers then begin
the process of sending the required documents needed in
order to prepare the return. Once the return is completed,
customers can sign the return using their mobile device,
which allows the tax professional to then file the return.
But perhaps the biggest advantage that Taxfyle
offers is reserved for CPA firms, particularly firms that
find themselves frequently overwhelmed during the tax
season. Here are just a few of the challenges that many
firms find themselves dealing with during the tax season:
■■ Finding and retaining qualified staff
■■ Maintaining a fair workload/overworked staff
■■ Dealing with new clients while continuing to keep current
■■ Ensuring that new staff are keeping up with tax changes
