You Decide: Best Tax Preparer?

Vote in our poll for this week's Reader's Choice Poll — best tax preparer in Sonoma.


"Nothing is certain except death and taxes."

The famous phrase — some say it was coined by Ben Franklin, some credit the Yale Book of Quotations, others say Mark Twain. Whichever it was, the phrase rings true, especially this time of year.

The deadline to file tax and pay taxes this year has been extended till Tuesday, April 17 — but it's not because someone at the IRS was in a good mood.

April 15 falls on a Sunday this year, and April 16 is Emancipation Day — a quasi-federal holiday that's observed in the District Columbia — giving all taxpayers an two extra days to file this year.

But if you haven't even started, you've still only got 15 days until the deadline.

So our timely Readers' Choice poll is "Who is the Best Tax Preparer (especially last minute)?"

Let us know who stands out.

Voting (rules attached at the right) comes in two forms: you can vote in the poll below, but the poll is not scientific and is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. You also weigh in by rating the entry on their page in Sonoma Patch Places directory (links below). We also encourage readers to post comments for the best tax preparer!

Here are the entries, but if we've left one off of the list, please let us know in the comments and we'll try to add it right away.

I use Turbo Tax--the computer program. I receive W2s or 1099s for all of my income so it is easy to file my own taxes and more economical than using a private tax person.

I don't own a business so I am able to keep track of my own finances and I do my own taxes.

Lots of good tax preparers on the list. If you own a business, it probably is really helpful to use a tax preparer. If you are on a salary, and don't have complicated investments, you may even be able to get the IRS to do your taxes for you if they are simple. But not at the last minute!!! My taxes are done..good luck to those still working on them.
