Chuck Sloan and Associates has become known as the go to people for the preparation of taxes for actors. We are very proud of our team of caring and experienced tax professionals who have helped thousands of clients save money on their taxes over the years. Chuck is personally acknowledged as one of the experts in the preparation of taxes for actors and other performers. He has been a facilitator for the Screen Actors Guild Foundation Tax Seminars as part of its "LifeRaft Series" for members for 7 years, wrote the Tax advice column for Backstage Magazine for 5 years and served as the Chairman of the S.A.G.- AFTRA- EQUITY VITA Program (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) and participated with the program for over ten years. Chuck has also served on the S.A.G. Board for four years and was a member of the S.A.G. Finance Committee for three of those years.
We specialize in preparing taxes for performers, and other members of the entertainment industry. Last year alone, we assisted over 1500 of your friends and co-workers as well as numerous others outside of the industry. When you work with one of our preparers, you have access to the collective expertise of all our preparers (that’s over 85 years’ experience). Our extensive experience in the tax industry allows us to deliver the highest quality preparation, lowest prices, and off-the-charts customer service.
We make the entire process easy to understand for all of our clients. When you leave our office, you will know that no stone has been left unturned. We make sure to use every deduction that is legally allowed. Plus, we pride ourselves in knowing you feel comfortable with every element of your tax return.
We pride ourselves in teaching you about the tax process and when you have significant deductions, as those in the entertainment business usually do, it’s an everyday activity to maintain proper tax records. That’s why we are equally proud that in our 20 year history, only four of our clients have ever had to pay a dollar more as a result of an examination by the IRS.
Our standard fee for a return is significantly less than the final cost of returns completed by almost all of our competition. It’s not because you won't receive the best possible return. It’s because most other preparers have a low “Get Them in the Door Fee” and then tack on an additional “Per Form Costs.” Because we know most of our clientele will be itemizing on their returns, those costs have already been included in our normal charge. Yes, sometimes we do have to charge for additional time (those with significant stock sales, apartment buildings, etc.) but 95% of our clients pay only our regular rate.
Get the Best Possible Tax Return without Paying More. If you believe that you have to pay more to get the best possible tax return; you are wasting your hard earned money.
We are so confident in our services that we stand by this statement: Anyone that claims that they can get you one dime more than we can is lying to you, the IRS or both. But only you will be signing the return and paying for what they may have done.
