Special offer for attendees!

One of our Neighborhood Networking attendees has been generous enough to offer a special offer for fellow attendees.

In order to expand his practice, he is offering Neighborhood Networking attendees a substantial reduction in initial fees. If you have not filed your 2008 taxes yet, he will prepare them for you for 50% of what any professional accountant charged you for 2007, within certain limits. He will also offer very favorable pricing for monthly and quarterly write-up work. This plan applies to new clients only. He hopes to present a similar new client offer for 2009 taxes.
