Frequently Asked Questions

Unlike chain preparers, the success of our business relies on your patronage. We provide year round consulting instead of an empty storefront nine months a year. We don’t produce and air expensive TV commercials about “having people,” meanwhile, passing the production cost on to the customer. We won’t try to lure you in the door with a “scratch and win” game or high interest short term loans.

Unlike the seasonal workers (many of whom are preparing taxes for the first time) at a “chain,” I practice all year long. I am familiar with the local economy and its employers. As a former Kodaker myself, I am especially experienced regarding all Kodak employee/retiree issues.

Working with MDM Financial services you can expect personalized service any time of the year, not just during the “season.”

Our goal is to provide strong, solid financial advice to our clients. Instant refunds are neither. An “Instant Refund” actually is a loan. If you work out the fee you pay for this loan as an annual interest rate, most average more than 100%. Some have even been reported at over 400%. Since the period of the loan is usually around 10 days, it may not seem as significant to pay this type of fee.

Alternatively, if you e-file your return, and have the refund direct deposited, you can have ALL of your money in as little as 8 days. Most e-filed refunds are deposited within 2 weeks. Its your money, wouldn’t you rather keep it?
