    I used Crabb Tax Services for the first time to file taxes late for 2013. The service was cold. I'm not going to say he was rude, but from the beginning he was short with me. When I came in, I admit I was unprepared for the appointment, he said little to me. I thought who cares? But he told me to send him what he needed electronically afterwards and that's when issues came up. I had questions and would email him about them, as he had prompted me to do, but he sent me some short response that did not answer all of my questions. After inquiring again through email, 3 hours later I had to call him. I can understand that you are busy but it would have been nice to read my email all the way the first time. Obviously I was nervous for having waited too long to file and never having mailed taxes to the IRS I had questions. He answered them but I just felt like he was trying to get rid of me or something. I got a letter in the mail today stating an additional amount of money that I owed the IRS and when I called them, the rep told me that my tax preparer should have calculated that amount owed. That prompted me to write this review as my concerns for "the brush-off" had been validated. I know I'm just a student but I wish I would have been given a little bit more time of day by Chris and at least a file with no hiccups or an explanation of what to expect.

    Mr. Crabb, is pleasant, and very professional person. He knows taxes and took care of some late tax problems I had. I was nervous while talking to him about my tax problems. His demeanor was calming and my fears went away. In little over a week my state tax problem was gone. My federal taxes went smooth also. I will be using Mr. Crabb for my 2015 Taxes. I have already informed my children about Crabb Tax Services. I also enjoyed when told my wife and me that he would having his wife review our taxes before he sent them to us. Four eyes are better than two.

    He has been helping me with filing my tax in San Diego. As soon as I send my documents he usually finishes filing within one to two weeks. Also I like his quick e-mail responses. Once I pointed out his mistake but he admitted his mistake and resolved the problem quickly. So overall I am satisfied with his job.

    We are a satellite telecommunication business in the Chula Vista Area, and we were looking for a Tax Professional to do our taxes and accounting. After searching in different places finally we found Chris Crabb Tax Services. Chris prepared our taxes for 2013 and we were very impressed how fast he did the job and assisted with all our concerns. We decided that we will keep using his accounting, bookkeeping, tax preparation services. He also do business corporations and LLC. The prices are very reasonable. He is always available for any questions and very knowledgeable in tax laws. We highly recommend his services.
