We meet all IRS requirements. Our Tax Preparers receive training in the basics of income taxes, they receive practice and testing in preparing income taxes using our proprietary software, ProFiler®, and they must pass a test to prove they understand the basics of taxes before they can prepare income taxes. Additionally, we require two hours of Ethics and Fraud and Prevention training for all tax preparers annually. We offer continuing education annually in tax theory. Most offices also employ Enrolled Agents, individuals who are authorized to practice before the IRS.

You can file an amended return to correct any errors or omissions on your original return. In some cases, you may even change filing status.
Using IRS Form 1040X, you need to state the reason for filing the amended return and show the correct tax information as well as your original refund or balance due amount.
Do not attach Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ to the amended return. Generally, you must file your amended return within three years after the date you filed your original return or within two years of the date your taxes were paid in full.

To get a copy of your Form W-2 or Form 1099, you should first contact your employer or financial institution. If we used your W-2 to prepare your tax return, though, you have a couple of options. If you have a MyJH account, you can log-in and view your filed tax return including your W-2. If you don’t have a MyJH account, we recommend creating one, but you can also reach out to your local office to request a copy, if available. You can also download Form 4506 at www.irs.gov to request a copy of the return you filed with the IRS which will include your Form W-2 or Form 1099 and other tax documents.
