The local tax service wants to make sure that during tax season, you needs are met.

Tax season is underway and to take all of the complications out of filling out the 1040 is Gateway Tax Service, one of which is located on Crenshaw and King Blvd. and open until the season ends in April.

“We are offering right now, our 100 to go program, where you can get $100 right away off of your tax return,” explained Sha-Sha Freeman, general manager at, at least two Gateway locations here in Los Angeles and who set up a booth at the 2012 Taste of Soul festival.

And, she said, customers who have “good” refunds with no debts can get up to $1000 right away.

“We are a company founded on the principle of putting the customer’s needs first in everything, and we take our role as your tax preparation partner very seriously,” said another Gateway spokesperson.

“At the same time, we don’t take ourselves too seriously—we like to have fun, and we guarantee you’ll feel at home and at ease the moment you step into one of our offices.”

At King and Crenshaw, Freeman and her team offer assistance for personal as well as business tax situations.

“Our normal rates do not exceed $300,” she said.

“Come file your taxes with Gateway, they get you paid fast,” wrote customer Shawana Hood on Gateway’s Facebook page.

“Forget about the stress of tax season,” said another Gateway spokesperson.

“Our team of professionals will take into account all relevant laws and ensure you receive the maximum refund. Income tax preparation is one of the most important and requested services we provide.  The complexity involved in completing income tax paperwork and filing on time and in full can make preparing income taxes on your own a difficult task.  Let us help…”

Services also include their refund anticipation advance, electronic filing, a choice between direct deposit or IRS direct check and W2 download for customers who don’t have a W2 on hand.

“Tax work is seasonal, but we keep an office open year-round to help you with tax-related questions or needs outside of tax season, including amendments, copying of returns, and other assistance,” they said.

“For our clients, we provide these services free of charge. Our skilled tax preparers will complete and file your tax return with no inconvenience to you, taking care of the details to ensure the highest refund possible.  Don’t wait until the last minute to tackle your taxes on your own.”
