Take a look at Intuit's product called Pro Series Professional. It's a good solution for small to mid size tax practices. They offer a package that is pay as you go. For $250 flat fee plus a per return charge. It requires less investment up front and the per return fees can be passed onto your clients. It is for people doing 33 or fewer returns a year. It could be a good option for your first year but has the room to grow in the future. It haven't used it yet but am in a similar growth situation and this was the best solution I found so far. Below is a link to pricing info. and you can demo it for free.
Thanks Derek, I'll check that out!
I have another question for tax prepare and CPA's. What do we think is the ideal number of business bank accounts you should have?
In my opinion the maximum number of bank accounts for a small busines would be 3.
1. An operating checking account for all revenue and expense transactions,
2. A payroll disbursing account for wages, salaries, and employmenrt taxes should you have employees (including S-Corp Officers/Directors.)
3. A savings account

I am going to expand my business into tax prep this coming season. I did it a few years back and used TaxAct. It only cost $100 and seemed to fit my purposes just fine. Does anyone know of a better tax program? I'm curious to know what they can do that warrants spendings thousands instead of the $100 I plan on spending for TaxAct. One area I know for sure TaxAct didn't address was AMT which was a little frustrating.
