Christi Bender, CPA, doesn't believe in just crunching numbers. She often says that "putting little numbers in little boxes about things that happened in the past is the least important part of my job". Christi understands that you need to feel heard. You need to be able to express your concerns and have someone explain the intricate elements of your tax situation in a language you can understand. You need to stop being confused and start understanding what impacts you and what you can do about it.
Your relationship with your accountant shouldn't be just once a year. You should be able to call and get an answer to a quick question, without charge, year around. You should be able to schedule an appointment at your convenience without a lot of phone tag. You should know that your accountant knows who you are and is on your team! Real service is about going beyond what you expect. It is about being responsive and knowledgeable. It is about having a partner in tax planning to prepare you to meet the challenges ahead. Our goal is to have you leaving every meeting feeling more empowered and ultimately able to sleep better at night.
Tax rules are complex and getting worse! The new Affordable Care Act has changed many elements of the tax law with new phase outs, extra hidden taxes and new ceilings and floors effecting deductions. The average American simply cannot keep up with all the rules. It would take hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars.
At Christi Bender, CPA, we actually spend hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars each year on tax seminars and research materials so you know that you are in good hands! Don't you want an accountant that eagerly commits their time and resources to knowing all the ins and outs of tax laws for your benefit?
We personally handle each client. We don't "farm out" your tax work and your files never leave our office. We take your privacy seriously and understand how much trust you have placed in us with regard to your personal financial information.
Getting to know you and your unique tax situation is our #1 job. Your situation isn't like anyone else's and there are no "canned" approaches that can help every client. Even from year to year your situation may change and it's important that you have a partner who wants to know what is going on in your life - not just at tax time, but as life is happening.
If your current tax professional isn't up on the new laws, or doesn't want to meet you personally to discuss your situation, or isn't available to answer a quick question you might want to come talk to us.
If you would like to discuss your needs please email me at Christi@ChristiBenderCPA.com or call me at 610-709-5177.
