Mr Gadre was very accommodating to us. He traveled 30-40 miles to meet with us at a Starbucks near our home in Aptos. His manner was impressively professional. He first showed us his credentials and his qualifications. We informed him that we need for him to provide tax returns for a trust and also our personal tax returns. He furnished printed itemization of data that we have to provide to support the preparation of our 2 tax returns. Then we showed him the tax returns we had submitted to the IRS for the previous year 2016. Next, he showed how the cost of both the trust and personal returns were obtained. This gained our trust and confidence.

I made an initial appointment with Jay on February 27, 2017. I found him to be very professional and knowledgeable. He asked the necessary questions to help me with my income tax. On March 8, 2017, as scheduled, Jay completed my tax returns. He carefully explained the details to me and also informed me that he scanned my doc so that I can keep the originals for record keeping purposes. He was thorough and detailed in his explanation. I am very pleased with his service and will continue using his services. I will definitely recommend him to friends and family!

Mr. Smith is very competent, prompt and accurate. You could not ask for a better tax preparer. He has done my takes for the past several years and I have been extremely satisfied.

Edward and his staff came in and fine tuned our processes which created a more efficient and accurate system. We now have top level detailed reporting to better manage the business. ABS also filed our annual income tax for much less than what we were use to paying. Great job ABS!

The past few years I have doing my taxes with Turbo tax, but this year I decided to get professional help. I'm glad that I did. Rahim is very courteous, professional, thorough and reasonably priced. He also showed me how the new tax law will affect my wife and I in 2018 and how we can prepare for the changes. I would definitely recommend Rahim for tax preparation services.

Ms. Smith provided excellent tax preparation services. Efficient , yet personable ,reasonably priced in a pleasant office, she made an otherwise unpleasant chore, enjoyable . I will be back. Draw back: difficult parking situation , all metered , with street sweeping restrictions . Building access is also restricted with insufficient directoy.

Excellent financial advice and planning. I am very happy with the direction of the investments that Michael has recommended. Added bonus of tax preparation at no additional cost is just fabulous. I really appreciate Michael's no nonsense approach with easy to understand explanations of the types of investment options and his well rounded approach to both long term and short term with considerations for low/medium/high risk opportunities. His continued watch of the economy and financial atmosphere is very comforting

George did our married foreign income tax filing for last year. Overall, it was a disaster. We chose him because he specializes in foreign income, his rate was a bit lower than others, and he answered our initial communications quickly and thoroughly - so, we started off expecting a good experience. However, the first draft of the filing contained numerous mistakes, such as: listing myself instead of my wife on the self employed income form, miscategorized income as a deduction, checking ‘no’ we did not need to file an FBAR when I told him it was already filed, and more. After finding so many initial mistakes, we tried to go over the corrected filing as thoroughly as possible and each of us found areas of concern which we wanted further clarification on. George assured us that everything was properly filled out, but said he would need start charging additional fees to answer our questions. We felt pressured into giving him the go-ahead to file. The final kicker was a mistake we missed: the country code for our german home address was incorrectly filed as GM instead of DE, and our tax return check never arrived because it was sent to Gambia! It took us 6 months of mailing forms back and forth to the US to get it sorted out. Doubly surprising, as we were expecting the refund to be electronically deposited to the account provided! In the end, we wish we had not allowed him to file but instead paid someone else to redo the taxes. We’re still concerned about their accuracy, and feel that especially the self employment income/deductions were handled so sloppily that I just have to cross my fingers we are never audited.

Jeannene Glass is very wonderful to work with. She helped me and my Girlfriend with my Girlfriends tax return this year, and also helped us to understand what we need to do, Tax wise, in starting our new business. She was efficient, thorough, knowledgeable and very kind throughout the whole process (even with us asking many questions). We look forward to working with Jeannene more in the future.

George took over both my bookkeeping and tax preparation. We had a lot of catching up to do and George was focused, knowledgeable, thorough, efficient, and timely. I could not have reconciled all those years without him! I highly recommend George for anyone's personal or business bookkeeping/tax prep needs.

Troy is a fantastic tax preparation expert. He has over 5 years of experience working at H&R block so he has all the knowledge of a true tax pro. Unlike the big firms, Troy truly cares about his clients and spends time with them trying to maximize their refunds. He also takes time to explain tax implications and laws. I learned so much about taxes after the first meeting! He's friendly and arrives on time. My refund was significantly higher than what I would have gotten at a big firm.

I rarely write online reviews. However, my experience with Allen preparing my tax returns has been so positive that I want to make sure everyone knows. My interaction with Allen has been exemplary. Allen has prepared tax returns for our family for many years with complete satisfaction. He is extremely knowledgeable and articulate in explaining tax complexities and nuances that can be difficult to understand. More importantly, he takes the time to understand our situation every year and genuinely respects our concerns. As a client, Allen returns all my phone calls promptly and takes the time to explain and review all my inquiries. His customer service is stellar!!! I would highly recommend Allen, and in fact, I have already done so. ~Jan T

Nat's Tax Service is SIMPLY AMAZING! Natalie Cunha makes tax filing absolutely convenient and painless. I submitted a request on Thumbtack last minute since we had a complicated tax filing this year and decided to use a Professional expert. She answered my tax service request within an hour. I sent her all my tax paperwork via email and along with a short description of the situation. She followed up with a phone call and promptly filed my taxes in the matter of days! I couldn't believe how easy she made this for me. She filed taxes for my entire family and we received the highest tax return by using her service. She is professional, trustworthy, smart and incredible knowledgeable. She is the best tax service I have ever used. I will continue to work with her. I can't recommend her enough for your tax services. She is that perfect personal Tax Accountant that I had been looking for all this while!
