Frequently Asked Questions

What is VTax?

VTAX is a full-service tax preparation, accounting and consulting firm. Each VTax tax professional is licensed and credentialed. Every tax return that we prepare is reviewed by an enrolled agent or CPA.

Why are we launching VTax?

Our company was born out of frustration in an industry with unreliable, under-qualified tax preparers with no licensing or certification and as little as five days tax training.   Our team consists of CPA’s, Tax Attorneys, and credentialed tax preparers who are registered with the IRS, licensed, experienced, and up to date on current tax regulations.  Whether it is a basic 1040 or a complex business return, VTax has a resource readily available with the appropriate level of expertise.   No more overpaying, and there’s no risk of getting a preparer that does not have the right level of experience and knowledge.
