Our Services

  • Tax Preparation – federal and multi-state
  • Electronic Filing – Electronic filing is mandatory this tax season. If you do not want to file your tax return electronically, you have to file tax form 8948 and mail your tax return yourself. “Electronic filing is the safest, fastest and easiest way for taxpayers to file their tax returns. E-filing is good for the tax system, good for taxpayers and good for the tax preparation industry,” said IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman. “This requirement reflects the realities of the modern world where technology has evolved to the point that everyone should be filing their tax returns electronically.”
  • Payment Option – We offer several options for paying your filing fee. We accept cash, credit cards, checks and money orders. Your tax preparation fee can be taken out of your bank account if you elect to direct deposit your tax refund. You can also receive a loan against your tax refund from Halona Plaza where your filing fee will be deducted when your refund is received. The Zuni Tax Services requires payment of filing fees before your return is processed.

IMPORTANT: It is strongly recommended that you receive all your tax information before filing your tax return to avoid having to file an amended return.

  • If you are filing a tax return using self employment as income, please have all your business related income and expenses listed and totaled. This would minimize wait time.

Office hours: Office hours are based on the appointment schedule. Tax returns are done by appointment only! The office does not accept walk-ins.
