I found Affordable Tax Services in the local yellow pages. I had received a letter from the IRS and wanted to make sure it was answered correctly. I called Affordable Tax Services and Brian Horne met me at his office that day, immediately assessed the issue, filled out forms and sent faxes to the IRS. I thought I might need a tax attorney, but Brian was able to handle it all and save me a lot of money in the process. He even recommended amending my last tax return, that I did myself at TurboTax, and found an error in the turbo tax program that he was able to override on is own system, found additional deductions, and ended up getting me several thousand back in refunds. Affordable Tax is not low quality service; they give CPA quality at truly half the price.

My husband and I have been going to Brian Horne at Affordable Tax since 2010, or since our 2010 tax year, so technically early 2011. At the time we had a small business and I had no clue how to do the taxes for it. This year though, we were 100% business free and I thought that I’d try to save a little money by using the free section of Turbo Tax. Unfortunately, I had a few 1099’s from the beginning of the year and Turbo Tax was showing that we’d have to pay over $700 to the IRS. I was shocked! I thought that with my regular return, my child perk for just having a baby, minus the 1099’s, it would come out to somewhere around $2000 back… now we were paying over $700… With that I called and set up an appointment with Brian and prayed he could get it closer to a $200 payment. So a few Saturday’s ago we sat down and went over every possible deduction for our situation. It took about an hour but it was well worth it!!! And in the end Brian was able to get us a pretty decent size return, I don’t know if I’m allowed to put it but it was over $1000, which isn’t a ton but compared to paying over $700!!! We were just so grateful that he took the time and cared!!! I whole heartedly recommend him to anyone!!! He is honest and just a great business person all around. PS. My sister used using him next year for sure… She used Turbo Tax and is now wondering how much she could have gotten back…

I almost feel like I’m cheating by going to him, only because Brian gives such a good price when everyone else seems to not care that they’re ripping you off. He knows what he’s doing and I really trust him too, if I had kids I would trust them with him. But anyway, he’s great, I recommend him over anyone.

Amazing pricing and prompt service!! Affordable Tax Services amended my 2011 returns after finding mistakes that my other CPA made. AND Brian Horne with Affordable Tax Services was able to remove the cancellation of debt from my return so that it wasn’t taxable saving me thousands in taxes. Couldn’t be happier!!

Tiffany C. said:   February 11th, 2013 9:19 pm

We had Brian help us with our taxes and it was fast and he was very helpful and enjoyable to work with. He charged us a lot less then we were quoted at H&R Block. It was also easy to get an appointment with him. We got a good return too. Thanks Brian, it was nice to work with you 🙂

Affordable Tax offers quality service at half the price. The past two years I have had my taxes completed there and now I will never go back to doing them myself. The price is well worth the peace of mind I get knowing they have been done correctly.

Donna L. said:   October 11th, 2012 9:32 pm

Affordable Tax is a first class tax firm. I have been going there for two years and will go again for this year’s taxes. My daughter was also thrilled with her experience this past year with a refund she couldn’t believe. The cost is unbelievably fair and less than half of its competitors. They also go the extra mile to explain, research, and clarify and questions and laws. They help you get the most money possible on your returns.

Jeff T. said:   October 10th, 2012 9:11 am

I have used these guys for two or three years and have been very satisfied with the results. They are easy to schedule, professional, thorough and reasonably priced. When the state audited my taxes from a year when I had done it myself, with their help, I ended up getting an additional refund rather than having to pay more!
