Paul Harris, C.P.A. in J.ville.

Most definitely!!
He does excellent work (( his wife Kay is his partner)), stands by their work if anything were to go wrong(( NOTHING ever has in the yearrsss I've used their services)), and if something ever did happen to go wrong..they would NOT charge additional "Fees" to "fix it".
They will also attend any audit that ya may have,too. I do happen to know of another customer of theirs that did have a random audit and they spoke very well of the way Paul & Kay handled it for and with them.

A close friend of theirs at the Bank told me that Paul had had some health issues recently,though. She told me that she thought he had been in Florida recently trying to get well but that both Paul & Kay would try to be back in Lee County well before the Tax Season this year.
If Paul's health doesn't/hasn't improved enough to permit that...I'm certain that either he or Kay will have made the necessary arrangements at their office to handle their clients this year. They have a very excellent staff there,too.

Good Luck to ya in finding someone that suits your needs.

Shoot!...Almost forgot that part of your question.

Ummm...I think it's around $120.00--$145.00 or so... it all depends on what ya need done.
Very reasonable and about the same rates as all the other C.P.A.'s around here.
BUUUTTT...ya won't get the guarantees with some of the others that Harris' will give ya, either.

I've done mine online with Turbo Tax for the past few years. It's free to e-file your federal return and it gives you a step by step guide through it.

H&R Block are some striaght up crooks ok first off they are advertizing free federal returns now correct me if im wrong but cant anyone go to the courthouse and get them done for free or online and do a simple federal return free also? Also if you have gotten their little brochure in the mail read the fine print offer only valid to those with no exemptions or those who are not claiming the eic and thats half the county.And the fees they charge are rediculous over 300.00 for a return. And God forbid you go somewhere else and need any previous records from them, they will stand there and lie to your face and say they dont keep any records. Lee co. has no decent cpa and the thing is after you work all year and need that money to get caught up on bills because you dont get a big ssi check they dont care how long it takes or how they have to bs you all they worry about is that they get paid. So I guess me and mine will haul our working class asses up to bsg and go with Jackson hewitt....good luck folks

There is no way you people should support H & R or Jackson Hewitt!

They honestly get involved with your taxes way to much! They once told me that my cell phone bill was not a work related expense for me when it clearly is and my job even gave me a list of itemized deductions that I could legally claim.

H & R and Jackson Hewitt is part of the corporate establishment that helped bury this country!

They did my taxes one time and they were shocked that after they put all of my information into their software ...
That my return was going to be huge!

They even spent more time trying to look at why I was getting so much back and trying to get my refund amount back ... To a smaller amount , than they did doing my own taxes.

What you tell the government you did , is between YOU , AND THE GOVERNMENT!



Their job is to tell the government what you want to tell them.

If you get audited later , then prove your case!

Go to Paul Harris people!

H & R block used to mainly be in the business of " Taking your Money "
Instead of getting you a return.

When I first started the career I am in right now , I had no idea that the process of doing my taxes was a
" extremely difficult and painstaking one "

When I went h & r block ..
They were like ,
" okay , give me your w2 "
" have any kids "
" okay , that's all we need "


They could have told me a lot of things , but they didn't!

When I sit down with Paul Harris...
He was like...
" Okay , do you know you should do this and this because this is your job and it will help you on your return . "

He asked me a lot of questions and was like , " Okay then if this happened, you should do this , it will also help you "

H & R block just wants your w2 and that's it! If they know you are doing something that will hurt you on your taxes , they will not say 1 word to you!
They will allow you to make that mistake!


If they see something and they know it is going to help you , bet your ass that they are going to grill you , accuse you , question it , and ask for paperwork!

What kind of practice is this?

It is called , taking advantage Of people who don't know better!

Jackson Hewitt and H & R block will nail you to the cross!

Don't ever go to places like that!

Let me ask you this , do you ever see rich people take their taxes into a place like that? No , you don't!

You usually see young , hard working , low wage people going into those places to get their taxes done, because they do not know any better.

Paul Harris is your best choice in Lee County. He is a consummate professional and treats all people with respect.

He will answer your questions and do anything he can to help you with your return as long as it is legal.

You people are so funny and almost ignorant.All tax parpers had to go back tp school this year and pass the IRS exam and be certified to do income taxed. None of the CPA's were required to take classed or pass the IRS Exams so they just keep on doing what they always done in the past. They never take update classed. They just read the updated from the IRS. Some of the worst Tax returns I have ever seen has been done by a CPA. A friend of ours went to the court house last year and had Chris Jones to do his return. Oru friend has never had a farm. He just has a little land and baught a horse or two for his grandchildren. Chris Jones set our friend up a big farm and got him a big refund. This year his tax person told my friend that he should amend his reeturn or look for an audit in the near future. I think Chris Jones is a CPA. Who do you think is gonna pay my friend's taxes, Intrest and penalties? I'll bet Mr Jones want be there!The IRS is gonna look at my friend and tell him that he lied and cheated on his income tax return. Mr Jones didn't even have to sign that return. Stay away from the court house!
