Advanced/Expanded Child Tax Credit is no more.
Now the Child Tax Credit has returned to $2,000 per child under age 17, and the parents total income must not exceed $400,000.
The 3rd Stimulus Payment aka Economic Impact Payment, aka Recovery Rebate
of $1,400 was sent out between March and December 2021. This might have been direct deposit, paper check or debit card. If you didn’t receive it, go to IRS.gov to see if it was sent. I will need to know IF IT WAS SENT when we do your 2021 tax return.
2022 Tax Year - No More Tax-Free Unemployment President Biden’s American Rescue Plan that included forgiving the first $10,200 of unemployment earned in 2020 has ended. You will be taxed as usual on all of your EDD income for tax year 2022.

★★★★★ Thank you so much for always being so thoughtful, helpful, caring and kind! You make the world a better place. ~ Chihiro K.
★★★★★ I feel AMAZING after working with the incomparable Jordana, she explained everything from top to bottom, broke down how I can be more efficient and effective when preparing my taxes, and what was fair and honest. I felt sooo comfortable asking numerous questions, and she never made me feel like a dummy, or like the question wasn't valid. ~ Lorene C
★★★★★ PROLOGUE: Who would ever spin a positive thought on the people preparing your taxes? That they were competent as well as actually entertaining?
ME! (The Protagonist).
STORYLINE: I may look smart to the naked eye, but that's all an illusion. Grateful for living in L.A. where you can pretend to be something you're not. Enter The Heroine: Jordana Capra (formerly with Chuck Sloan and Associates.)
My math skills are terrible. I don't do numbers. Thank goodness The Heroine does.
This is my second year having my taxes done by the lovely Jordana (aka, The Heroine). I almost debated on giving her name so she won't be clogged with new people next year, but this is a positive review, so I might as well spread the good word.
THE PLOT THICKENS: I kid you not when I tell you it was 'late-night at the tax office' as I had a rather late evening appointment. Heck, I was all for it. The more illicit, the easier for me to understand. I hope you all know I'm partially kidding.
Who actually laughs during their tax return? I did. I never thought I could actually joke around with these people ...you had to be there).
Now the truth is that I suffer throughout the year by getting as much tax taken out as I can, but the relief comes at precisely this time, when I owe nothing but Jordana. And she is well worth the money. And yes, she solely does taxes, although I'm making it sound like a side business here.
EPILOGUE: We reenact a scene from 'The Sound of Music' by spinning in the back parking lot (Backstory: we were simply trying to activate the security motion light so I could find my car). We then bid adieu until the next scene, which will take place approximately same time next year, as the saga continues... ~ Shannon N.
★★★★★ Jordana cares, and understands how unstable this career can be, and she’ll do her best to help you. Jordana's so nice and funny! I am definitely coming back next year, worth my time and money. ~ Ollie M.
★★★★★ It was our first time filing as a married couple, Jordana was friendly, helpful, and efficient. She specializes in actors, independent contractors, etc., but she did a fine job with us and we don't fall into those categories. Go to Jordana for whatever your tax needs are! ~ Veronica B.
★★★★★ I've been coming here for 9 years after attending one of their actor tax talks at SAG. Now I have Jordana doing my taxes every year and she's the best! So organized with helpful information about taxes for anyone in the entertainment industry. I've learned how to itemize better and keep track of the things that truly matter to independent contractors. She specializes in taxes for actors but can file anyone's returns. ~ Ashton S.
★★★★★ Jordana Capra is simply the very best. Jordana handled me with kid gloves and had no judgments about anything. She is a performer herself and therefore "gets it". She explains things in detail so I no longer am in the dark about how I should properly handle my business throughout the year. I'm officially a client...and a fan. ~ Rod T.
★★★★★ I couldn't have had a better first experience - Jordana was super patient and talked me through everything so next year I would be more prepared. Great at breaking down all those deductions performers can qualify for. She even gave me a handy app to track business miles . See ya next year Jordana!!!!
~ Chevonne H.
★★★★★ Since moving to LA and knowing I wanted to take full advantage of working-actor deductions, my knowledge of the tax code really was not going to cut it. I'm just coming back from my appointment right now and am immediately on yelp --- guys -- that's how good it was here. After my appointment I was thanking Jordana and said "This was...fun?" The packet she has you fill out before going in is very, very, helpful - use it! ~ Hayley O.
★★★★★ JORDANA!!! Went here for my 2012 taxes and Jordana rocked my world! She was awesome...super intelligent, super friendly, super helpful, basically A-MAZING! Long story short, if you're in the entertainment business, GO TO JORDANA to get your taxes done. Your pocketbook and stress level will be happy you did. Just don't ask for Jordana...she's mine :)
5/18 Just wanted to post again...have been using Jordana since my 2012 taxes and refuse to go to anyone else! Now I actually love doing my taxes!! THANK YOU! ~ Heather R.
