Tax season is upon us. On Jan. 30, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) began processing individual tax returns, with a deadline to file by April 15. Your wage statement from your employer should be arriving soon, if it hasn't already. Should stress be creeping in at this point in time, Help Me Rhonda Inc. is just a phone call away.
Income taxes may not have been on the mind of the California Beach Boys when they sang "Help Me Rhonda." However, Maui resident Rhonda Ferrer, owner of Help Me Rhonda Inc. in Kihei, is ready to counter your tax anxiety.
"I am experienced in completing all kinds of legal paperwork that drives most folks crazy," said Rhonda, who has a degree in business management from Fairleigh Dickenson University in New Jersey. Rhonda is a member of the National Association of Tax Preparers. In 2012, she completed the continuous education requirements for an IRS Registered Tax Return Preparer.

Prompt, efficient service is what Rhonda strives to provide to clients who don't have the time or inclination to hassle with those long, complicated legal forms. Rhonda gives you friendly tax advice with aloha and results you can trust.
The stress to collect your pile of tax records, receipts, bills, mileage logs and other documents to take to your tax preparer can be overwhelming.
"Suddenly, you might need to call 'Help Me Rhonda,' and Rhonda will help you!" Ferrer said.
"No matter how complicated your tax situation is, Help Me Rhonda can assist," said Ferrer.
In addition to standard income tax returns, Ferrer can aid with the complexities of self-employment, home-based businesses and more. She is available throughout the year when you have tax questions.
Ferrer has been in business on Maui for 20 years and has many satisfied customers. In addition to full tax preparation, her services include form preparation, non-contested divorce (her other specialty), irrevocable living trusts, power of attorney, establishing paternity, name changes and adoptions, individual and sole proprietorships, LLCs, and general and corporate taxes.
While a lot of people pride themselves in doing their own taxes, they may be missing out on reimbursements they are not even aware of. Because the U.S. income tax laws are considered to be complicated, many taxpayers continue to seek outside assistance.
"Many times, there is a strategy in what to do," Rhonda said. "People often don't know about tax credits or even correct filing status."
"I can help you with your options for reducing and paying off your tax debts and how to plan for the future," she added.
She has, in fact, helped many people who haven't filed taxes for several years or more.
"I recently helped someone who had not filed for three years get back $10,000," she said.
"I have a genuine interest and concern for my clients," said Rhonda, who visits the homes of the elderly and disabled at no extra charge. "If clients are unable to come to Kihei and would like their taxes done, I can meet them at a place that's convenient," she said.
