Introducing Our New
Ask an Accountant Subscription

For $67 a Month You Get Access to Our Business Tax and Finance Experts!

Have a quick question about recording a transaction in Quickbooks?  Want more information on a S-Corp?  How many times do you have a quick question that you need to run past an accountant, but you don't have the ability to without paying a large hourly consultation rate?

We know that having access to an accountant can make your life easier throughout the year and we want to make sure you have the resources you need to run your business successfully.

Our Ask an Accountant subscription works to fill this need for small business owners. 

 

Here's how it works:

01

You'll get an invite to our client portal.  You can access it via the website or through our mobile app.

02

You can submit your questions via our portal or via email.  Once you submit a question we'll send a request for any additional information we may need.

03

We'll compile answers and upload them to your portal.  We answer questions with a combination of direct written answers, helpful info sheets and handouts, and/or helpful links and articles.

Once you sign up for your subscription you'll get invited to our client portal.  This portal allows you to submit questions, upload paperwork, and download resources our accountants send you.  Our portal is accessible on the website and through our mobile app.  This makes the process of asking our accountants questions on the go seamless.

You can submit questions to our accountants via the client portal or via email.  We'll follow up with information requests if needed.  When we answer your questions we do so with a combination of direct written answers, helpful information sheets, handouts, process sheets, forms, helpful links, and/or articles.  Our goal is to help you understand the why behind your taxes.

Questions are answered within 72 hours of getting all of the relevant information related to your question.  We answer them in writing through our client portal - you'll receive an email notification when they are complete.  You will never again forget what you're accountant said - if you do you can easily look it up in your client portal.  You are also free to download the written answers to store in your own information database.  

Once you sign up you'll be onboarded to our client portal and an engagement letter will be sent over via signature.  You do not have to wait to submit your questions, as soon as you purchase your membership you can send your questions to Support@MariettiAccountingServices.com.  Please make sure it is coming from the email you used when purchasing your membership.  We do require that your engagement letter is signed prior to releasing any answers.
