Description of service

My taxes for this year as well as going over last years again becaue the last person who did my taxes did not care what I was supposed to get back. He printed out everything to give back to me in a folder as well as preparing my envelopes to send any information back. He had the stamps and everything. He spent a moderate amount of time with me not rushing to see the next people and was very friendly and courteous. He was nice to the next people as well apologizing for making them wait.

Review of Service

This was really good service. The person paid pretty good attention to detail and made sure I got what I was supposed to even in back taxes. He stayed longer with us because I had extra paper work. He actually charged me less that I thought he would.


Find someone who others have spoken highly of. Usually if it's a good accountant word of mouth plays a big role. make sure who your dealing with takes time with you to go over everything. Accountants know what to look for when doing taxes and sometimes you have money coming back you didn't even know about.
