For the second year in a row, Pampered By Sam Mobile Office and Tax Solutions, is providing the Idyllwild community with a tax pop-up shop during tax season.
Each Saturday, a part of the Town Crier office is used as a tax office to accommodate the residents and businesses of the Hill for their tax needs. It was very important to the firm to have a place where locals could come to get their taxes done, not just by appointment but also by walk-in.
“I just didn’t want people to think they had to drive down the Hill to get their taxes done just because there was nowhere in Idyllwild they could walk into,” owner Samantha Hallburn said about deciding to open the shop. “We’ve had an incredible response from the community, especially this year because of how long it takes to get down the Hill,” she added.
The accounting firm that was founded in 2015 has grown into being a full-service office and tax solutions provider on the Hill and beyond, and tax preparation is just one of the services it offers.
The personal tax deadline this year is Monday, April 15; but if you are not prepared to file by then, an extension can be filed for you.
The Tax Shop will be open every Saturday through the end of the tax season from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. for appointments and walk-ins. It is available during the week by appointment if Saturdays do not work for you.
Taxes are prepared by certified tax preparer Amy Aronson, and Hallburn is available to assist with small business solutions and tax planning for small businesses. Aronson said, “We offer electronic filing, paying with your refund and we are always up-to-date on the newest tax laws and changes. I’m really enjoying being able to work so closely with the community and offer these services”.
The firm also offers a digital receipt imaging service to help eliminate paper storage and assist with totaling receipts for itemization.
