Mary Bamburg, CPA - for Individuals and Small Businesses
Accuracy. Integrity. Personal Service.
These are the principles I've built my business on.
If you're in need of tax return preparation, tax planning or accounting services, it would be my pleasure to apply my expertise to your specific situation.  If you're looking for quality service at affordable prices, please contact me today!
My services include, but are not limited to:
  • Income Tax Preparation for Individuals and Small Businesses
  • Electronic filing for faster processing and refund
  • Estimated Tax Payment consulting
  • IRS Tax Forms 1099, W-2/W-3, W-4, W-9
  • Quarterly Sales Tax Returns
  • IRS Audit Representation
  • Business Entity consulting
  • Tax Planning Strategies
  • Payroll, quarterly employment tax filings and other accounting services for small businesses on case-by-case basis
Services to fit your needs:
  • Tax returns are completed on a first-in, first-out basis after I receive your tax package; it has been my experience that clients do not enjoy sitting and waiting while a tax preparer works, therefore I have structured my set-up to minimize the time and hassle for my clients. 
  • No surprise fees - I base my fees on the number of forms and am willing to provide my clientele with an estimate upfront.  This method has been particularly well received as I've heard countless stories of taxpayers walking away shell-shocked at the tax fee after their return was complete.  Because of my commitment to keeping overhead as low as possible, unless a taxpayer self-prepares, I have yet to find more competitive pricing for the Austin and surrounding areas. 
  • With extensive experience in stock transactions, including non-qualified and incentive stock options, employee stock purchase plans, restricted stock, and open-market transactions, I offer guidance and advice on the impact of these on your W-2 and income tax return, to aid you in your tax planning.
  • Existing clientele includes a large number of self-employed Schedule C and S Corp filers, ranging from custom home builders, realtors, authors, daycare providers, consultants, recruiters, sales, HVAC, cosmetologists, musicians, interior designers, electricians, veterinarians and other service industries. 
  • Flexible appointment times and methods - a large majority of my clients prefer to send their tax documents electronically through a secure portal or by mail, but I also have many clients who prefer to drop onsite in a locked mailbox or book a 15-30 minute drop-off appointment. 
  • To keep advertising costs low, I have grown my business almost solely on referrals and offer a referral discount program for clients that bring new clients to me.  I also offer discounts for military, senior citizens and low-income families that are unable to afford tax return services.
  • Something I routinely hear from my clients is their desire to build a personal, ongoing relationship with a CPA that they feel they can call on throughout the year on various tax issues.  While the majority of my work is seasonal, I am available to my clients year-round. Clients typically call upon me, either by phone or e-mail, for assistance with more informal planning and "what if" scenarios.  Should a client desire an in-depth, formal appointment for matters other than preparation of their tax return, my fees are charged on an hourly basis.
