Tax Checklist Guide


Based on client feedback, we have elected to forgoe the web-organizer for the 2017 filing season.  Instead, a PDF "Tax Checklist" document will be availalbe on your client portal (Log-In) for download.   

This Tax Checklist is designed to help you gather the information needed to prepare your 2017 personal income tax returns. To avoid filing for an extension*, your completed Checklist and all requested supporting documentation should be submitted to Fowler & Co. no later than the deadline.

You have three options to deliver your information this year:
1. Scan and upload it to your secure client portal.
2. Fax it to 541.241.8445
3. Schedule a time with Curt Edwards to meet and deliver your documents in person.  He can be reach by email or phone at 541.241.8445.
