About TAX TO GO
We are Tax To Go, and we are known for one thing: Fast Affordable Tax Returns. We know that there are a lot of ways for you to get your taxes prepared; you could get out your calculator and a pencil and dive right in. That can work, if you know what you are doing and your return is fairly simple. You could go out and spend $50 dollars and buy a good tax preparation software. You still need to know what you are doing and the old saying applies; to err is human, but to really screw things up, use a computer.
So where does that leave you? You can hire an accountant. Wonderful, good move, but it can be pricey. You can go to one of the national chains of tax preparers. They do a fine job for the most part, but they are in a different business than just preparing tax, they want to buy your refund from you. Well, how much is that refund worth? Would you believe that under federal law, the discounter can take 15% of the first $300. ($45) and 5% of the rest. The average Canadian, according to the Canada Revenue Agency, got back $1,400 last year. That means that to prepare your return, one of the national chains gets to charge you $100.00. And of course, for every additional form there is to fill out, the higher your fee goes.
Then there is TAX TO GO
Here is the difference. We do not discount income tax returns. We believe that discounting income tax returns amounts to a short-term loan with very high interest. Think of it this way: You are getting back $1,400. You pay $100. That’s 8% right? No! That would be 8% if your refund took a year to process, but refunds generally take 2 weeks. So you are paying an enormous amount for just 2 weeks.We charge a low, one time only fee. We process your return and take the time to discuss the results with you. Our fees are generally less than $50.00 per return. AND you get your refund-YOUR WHOLE REFUND in two weeks. Why would you have your taxes done any other way?
