What We’re Not Able To Do For You

We do not assist in filing the quarterly/monthly State of Hawaii income tax returns for you, the owner. (Note: If the tax liability is over $4,000.00 annually you must file every month). However, Cyrila Pycha, our Office Manager, will be happy to walk you through the first filing. It is actually quite easy.
