The original tax center is superb! Jay the taxman is totally vested with his clients. He makes tax preparation a pleasure.

I've gone twice to The Original Tax Center with strange questions, and both times, Mr. Holt has known the answer.  I spent from 9am to afternoon on the telephone trying to get answers from the IRS, and two staffers told me they didn't have that information.  Mr. Holt did.   I always talk to Mr. Holt--there's no finer tax advisor!

This is the tax preparation equivalent of that wonderful, trusted, neighborhood hardware store that has always been there. I did my taxes on my own until I started having to do Schedule C a few years ago. Went to Block once or twice, and my experience varied widely in quality and cost, as did the expertise of their staff. Last year I came here, and they did a better job on my taxes, at a lower cost. Best of all, it is a locally owned, independent small business that has been around since 1945, that's hard to come by in this town. Friendly, stable staff that remember you from year to year as well. I got a loyalty discount for coming back as well. More...

This place really helped me out with my tax return conundrum. After a fiasco with another tax preparer, the tax assistant (Mr. Dickson to be exact) really went out of his way to help me prepare taxes from previous years. And Mr Dickson was just as helpful with this past year's tax return preparation. I'd highly recommend The Original Tax Center for a quick and affordable tax return preparation center. More...

I used to think that I did a decent job with my taxes.  They would get done in steps, actually.  Step 1: Gather my documents.  Step 2: Realize that April 15th was fast approaching.  Step 3: Panic.  Step 4: Download tax software.  Step 5: Fill in the blanks.  Step 6: Be confused and frustrated.  Step 7: Cross my fingers.  Step 8: Finish the forms.  Step 9: e-file.  Step 10: Pay, or wait for a check.I did this for the past 5 years and for the most part, it was fine.  That is, until I received a letter in the mail early this year (2011) from the Commonwealth of Virginia about my 2007 taxes.  Since then, I've been scared of The Government, and decided that I'd get my taxes done by a professional.  I'm so glad I did. I picked The Original Tax Center because of their location, and because they are a small business that has been around since 1945.  The place looks it too - it is the most unsexy place in DC.  But you're not going to base a tax center by its looks right?  I called them for an appointment and was able to get one within a week.  The receptionist was incredibly nice, as was my tax preparer, Rich.  It took him less than an hour to put all of my forms into his tax software and got me a really great refund.  And right when I thought he was done, he wanted to hang on to them for a bit longer 'cause he wanted to double check something.  He said he'd give me a call, and sure enough, about half an hour later, he called to tell me he found me even more money.  Nice!Yes, the clientele are more my parents' age.  And yes, I saw the receptionist use a typewriter at some point.  But they got the job done and then some - and that's 5 stars in my book.
