For Small Businesses

What our Clients are saying

A relative referred me to Cochran Tax Service so I decided to give them a try. Needless to say, the results were much, much better than in any of my previous years. Linda asked pertinent questions and gave me information about deductions that I was unaware about pertaining to my business. I was very excited to get the results for 2009, any even more so with the results from the amended returns for the last 3 years (refunds from overpaid taxes because of an error she discovered on those returns). It goes without saying, that from now on the Cochran firm will be getting my business. Thanks for all the excellent help.

But the problem is that regular taxpayers, like you, are missing out on legal and safe deductions, to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars in unclaimed refunds every year!
