Pay the lowest, legal, logical tax possible when De Pere Business Center LLC works with you. Let our Income Tax Department focus on a combination of tax planning and income tax preparation that provides you with a personal, reasonably priced service.
Most members of our staff have the credentials necessary to assist you in responding to IRS letters and to letters from the Wisconsin Department of Revenue. If you need to file a late income tax return, we also can help you with that process.
As with most states, Wisconsin doesn't require tax preparers to take classes or pass exams before offering advice or preparing returns, so buyer beware! Before you choose a professional, ask questions.
