Our Fees

Zagmout & Company  prides itself in being transparent and having a simple fee structure.  In addition, we try to maintain historical fees for returning clients. 

Most tax returns and business services will fit into the fees described below:

Individual Tax Preparation:

We specialize in tax preparation for Individuals, foreign earned income exclusions, capital gains, asset dispositions, etc. Typical fee range is $300 to $1,500 (includes Aug and Nov tune-ups) for standalone individual tax returns. 

Business Tax Returns:

Our primary focus is business consultation, deduction optimization and tax return preparation. Typical fee range is $900 to $2,500 (Including owner's personal tax return) for partnership and corporate tax returns depending on the quality of your accounting records. 

Business Formation:

We can create an LLC, partnership or corporation for $300 plus the state filing fees. Includes Articles, EIN, Operating Agreement, S Corp election (if necessary) and consultation to help you launch your venture. Discounts for multi-tiered entity structures. 

Accounting & Payroll Services:

Accounting service through our partners is typically $200 to $300 per month or $500 to $600 per quarter, depending on your reporting cadence. Turn-key payroll up to 10 employees paid bi-weekly with direct deposit is $150 per month. 


Our fee is $0 for the 1st 30 minutes and then $150 for the next 30 minutes. If we engage into future services we will credit the $150 towards future professional fees. Get solid answers right away! If we don’t have the competency we will tell you that as well, and refund the consult fee. 

August and December Tune-Ups:

For those clients who have a tax-only engagement with us, we offer a lot more than just a tax return. Tax returns are boring. Tax planning including projections and end of year tax moves is way more valuable to you than 100 pages of gobbly-goo in some dust-catching PDF aimed at IRS compliance. Wow, that is a long sentence… anyways, in August we offer a tax planning tune-up and later on in November we offer an end of year tax consultation. These are complimentary consultations. Sure, you’re paying for it in some fashion with your tax preparation fees above but then again, this is a valuable service that most tax professionals don’t offer. 

Here is a quick list of the necessary steps to have  Zagmout & Company prepare your tax return, and the process you can expect.
