It's Tax Season! These Alum Rock Tax Preparers Are Ready to Help


This is the busiest time of year for some businesses along East Santa Clara Street and Alum Rock Avenue. It’s tax season and this part of the city is home to more than a dozen tax preparation services.

These tax experts are working overtime providing their guidance and expertise to help their neighbors get through a process that many of us dread. Considering that the U.S. tax code is now nearly 74,000 pages long, compared to 400 pages back in 1913, that expertise and guidance is valuable.

Despite convenient online software that will help you file your taxes affordably, many taxpayers look for a more personal experience to make sure they don’t miss any opportunities.

“A lot of people are not aware of the various tax credits available to them and licensed tax preparers can help them navigate the process,” says Jesus Flores of Flores Professional Services.

Flores has been serving the community as a tax preparer since 1992 and he estimates that this year his staff will process about two-thousand tax returns. He says his fellow tax preparers on the Alum Rock East Santa Clara corridor have developed loyal customers over decades by offering personalized services that are, among other things, culturally sensitive and multilingual.

He has some simple suggestions before you go see your tax professional, including:

  • Provide all your W2 forms and any other proof of income.
  • Bring any documentation on possible deductions, such as charitable donations, mortgage interest, business or any work-related expenses.
  • Make sure your tax preparer is registered with the state of California and Internal Revenue Service.

On that last point visit the California Tax Education Council and the IRS Directory of Federal Tax Return Preparers to verify that your tax preparer is legally registered to do the work.  

Visit the Shop Alum Rock business directory or see below for a partial list of tax preparation services in the neighborhood, provided by the Alum Rock Santa Clara Street Business Association.
