It’s American to pay taxes- but not a cent more than your legal share!


Chance Tax recently prepared my income tax returns and I was delighted to receive a refund after hiring him to to my 2013 tax return. This is the first year in many that I didn't have to pay, pay, pay! He is very thorough with his accounting ability and I highly recommend him for his services. He is very courteous and extremely knowledgeable and professional.

Compared to other accountants in the Las Cruces area that I have used, his fee's are very reasonable for his services.  You will feel very assured with your final return knowing his attention to detail and experience are working for you.

Hey - and that’s no B******** EITHER!



This is our second year of utilizing Al's tax service and we are very satisfied with his work.  He provides friendly professional service with great attention to detail.



When I first heard about a guy who sings AND prepares Taxes, I laughed. Then I sat down with Al and he showed me stuff I never knew I was missing  - and now I have seen the light! And it’s bright, and it’s name is “Chance The Tax Man!”
