American Tax Service is a locally owned business and has been servicing the Janesville area since 1990. We specialize in both personal and business income tax preparation along with offering small business payroll and bookkeeping services. We are open year round to assist our customers needs.

It has been quite a year! COVID-19 Pandemic, Safer-at-Home, Masks, Virtual Everything , Civil Unrest, Political Differences, the Election, Reduced Hours at work , Lost Jobs, Unemployment, Stimulus Grants and now heading into the 2021 Tax Season. Besides doing our part to remain Safe & Healthy, we have been working hard to keep up on all the new tax laws and changes by attending numerous "virtual" seminars and workshops besides our required annual training .

We are an "Essential Business" (payroll and accounting for many local businesses) and we have remained open and continue to be OPEN for Business to service our clients with Income Tax and Accounting Services. Our office follows all CDC and local health department guidelines - mask wearing, sanitizer everywhere, regular cleaning of surfaces throughout the day. The Safety and Well-Being of our staff and clients are of upmost importance.


Millions of other tax payers are in the same boa.t, if that makes you feel any better. As of June 25th, 2021 the IRS had a backlog of 16.7 million 2019 and 2020 individual tax returns that require MANUAL processing by agency employees. Some of these are paper returns and others were suspended during electronic processing and need further review.
Unfortunately, there is not much that a taxpayer or their tax preparers can do about these delays. But the are reasons for some hope! The IRS expects to complete the processing of the 2019 Forms 1040 that were mailed in sometime this summer. And now that new returns are trickling into the IRS at a slower rate than during the filing season.
Please be patient and DO NOT CALL THE IRS or AMERICAN TAX SERVICE as there is nothing we can do to hurry up the process.
