Halon Tax – published on Apps.com February 2019

Halon specializes in small business tax preparation.
We prepare and file S-Corp, Partnership, Sole Proprietor and associated Personal tax returns in 12 hours or less. Our Halon AI prepares the taxes, and a member of our CPA tax team reviews it before sending it back to the business owner for review.
If your business does less than $1M in revenue, Halon can prepare your return.

Halon Tax is the future of small business tax preparation. No longer are business owners limited to using local CPAs and accounting firms with large price tags and poor service. Halon is a unique mix of technology and people. Our cutting-edge software can prepare tax returns in 12 hours or less, and our team of tax experts will review and triple-check the return before filing.

Halon integrates directly with QuickBooks Online and has a live connection. No more mailing, faxing, or scanning forms. Simply connect the QBO account and start the return. Halon’s live QBO connection means any changes the business owner makes to their books once they’ve started with us will automatically show in Halon.
Before preparing a return, our Financial Accountants check the bookkeeping of the business to make sure there aren’t any errors or discrepancies, saving the business owner from potentially missed deductions or IRS fines.

After the books are ready, Halon prepares the return and hands it off to be reviewed by three different accountants for verification. Our accountants work aggressively within the law to identify every possible deduction and area of savings before finalizing the return and sending it to the business owner to review.

Business owners can meet with a CPA to go over and discuss their return, just like they would using a traditional firm.

Halon can prepare Form 1120S (S-Corporations), Form 1065 (Partnerships) and Form 1040 (Personal Returns).
Pricing starts at $249/return for a limited time.
