We are credentialed.

Our team of professionals has earned some of the most recognizable credentials in the industry. We stay abreast of trends, laws and developments with ongoing education. We are committed to life-long learning and the continual enhancements of our skills in order to best serve our clients.

What’s a CPA?

The Certified Public Accountant, (CPA) credential is a license issued by one of the 55 states or territories of the U.S. that authorizes the holder to practice as a CPA in that jurisdiction. Licensing of CPAs helps to protect the public interest because only those individuals who have met prescribed requirements are permitted to identify themselves to the public as CPAs.

What’s an EA?

An Enrolled Agent (EA) is a federally-licensed tax professional who specializes in taxation and has unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service. Enrolled Agents have demonstrated technical expertise in taxation and IRS practices & procedures. To earn the Enrolled Agent designation, candidates must pass a comprehensive examination covering Federal taxation and IRS representation, practices & procedures or through experience as an IRS employee. They must also pass a tax compliance check to ensure they have filed all necessary tax returns and paid all tax liabilities.

Our Community Engagement Program

We believe in the power of building community and giving back to the nonprofits that make life better for all of us. Whether we are volunteering, sponsoring an event, or sharing our time and talents, our Community Engagement Program unites our efforts so that together, we can make a tangible difference in Clark County.

The following Philanthropic Guideposts help guide our giving:

Programs for Positive Change

We believe in programming that is upstream in its approach and strategic in its design. Activities that aim to solve and prevent challenges before they start are in alignment with our companies’ approach and highlighting ways to leverage other sources of support is even better. We ask: how can our support be a catalyst for good?

Community Enhancement

Our community is our home, and we honor the beauty that surrounds us – be it the green landscape, the thriving downtown, or the art and music that bring us joy. We put our efforts to improving our local surroundings.

Empowerment through Leadership

We want to invest in developing local leaders – especially our youth – because in doing so, we give voice to those who need it most and help build a more robust, diverse think tank to help solve our community’s greatest challenges.

Education & Skills for Financial Wellness

At the heart of Johnson Bixby and Integrated Tax Services is a commitment to help clients make the most informed choices possible for their financial success. We work to extend our commitment to education to our local community members.

questions and Answers

Q: How do I register and sign-up with the NetClient system?

A: You need a registration link sent by us to activate your account. Please send us an email at connect@its-taxes.com and we’ll send you an invite to connect. If you haven’t already, please see the video above for instructions on the log-in process.

Q: I lost my original invitation to sign up. How do I get another one?

A: Please send us an email at connect@its-taxes.com and we will resend you the invitation.

Q: I did not receive the NetClient registration email.

A: Please check your junk and SPAM folders, and/or your blocked email for an email from no-reply@thomsonreuters.com. After doing this, if you still cannot find the email, contact us via email and request your registration email be resent.

Q: I am having trouble signing in, cannot upload documents and/or unable to access NetClient.

A: A few things to try:

  • Clear your cache in your Internet browser, including clearing your browsing history, download history, cookies, cached images and/or cached fields from your Internet browser.
  • Try a different internet browser. Microsoft Edge is the preferred browser for NetClient. You may also want to try to use an incognito browser.

Q: What kind of files should I upload?

A: PDF files are the best for us. We also accept Word documents and Excel files. Just don’t upload image documents such as PNG or JPG files. There are many free programs and app, such as Adobe Scan and Genius Scan, where you can scan your documents by taking a picture on your mobile device, and it then converts them into a PDF making them ready for upload. 

Q: How do I fill out the questionnaire and the organizer in NetClient?

A: The questionnaire and the organizer are both PDF files. Download the PDF on your device and you should be able to open the file and complete as a fillable PDF. If you are running into challenges, please use the free Adobe DC Reader.

    Q: How secure is NetClient?

    A: NetClient CS is extremely secure, and uses multi-factor authentication for all users for added security protection.

      Q: I don’t see my files anymore that I uploaded two weeks ago. Do I need to upload them again?

      A: Once we have processed your files and made them available for our team preparing your return, they will disappear from your view.

        Q: The system is asking me for a password to view my tax packet. Please help.

        A: Your password will be the social security number of the primary taxpayer.

          Q: How do I access my prior year information on ShareFile?

          A: Please use the following link https://its-taxes.sharefile.com/ to access your ShareFile account and download your documents. Remember that ShareFile is a temporary storage system to exchange secure documents; it is not a permanent storage system. Once the full transition to NetClient is complete, we will delete all information from ShareFile and cancel the account.

          Q: I submitted my tax documents on paper but have opted into receive a copy of my return electronically. How do I get my documents back?

          A: Once your return is ready, we will give you a call and let you know you can pick up your documents. If you haven't picked them up by May, and are not on extension, we will mail them to you at the address we have on file.
