We started using Mike a few year ago and I really appreciate his professionalism and easy going personality. It's time for us to prepare again this year and we got our tax organizer in the mail from his office. We just make a note of any changes from the previous year and send it in along with tax forms like W2s etc. His office will call in a few weeks and set up an appointment, either by phone or in person. It's so easy and he has saved us thousands! Mike costs a bit more than a standard preparer but you pay for what you get, and he is very knowledgeable about a variety of tax related issues.
