For the efficiency and convenience of sharing information with us, we provide all our clients with access to the Tax Return Filers Client Portal.
this online portal allows you to securely upload files of any size for improved and faster collaboration. It also offers mobile and remote access, meaning you can access your files from anywhere, whether you are at the office, on a trip, or on the go.
