Kathleen was willing to take our returns within a few days before the tax deadline. The 2015 refund she got for us exceeded the amounts I got from using Turbo Tax by 90%. She also helped us retrieve additional refunds due us from previous overpayments to both the feds and state of California.
General Tax preparation. Darren was very professional and personable. I originally phoned him after receiving his quote, assuming an office meeting would follow. Everything was handled on-line though, quick and efficient. As soon as Darren received all of my documents he prepared and filed without delay. My 'good' rating is based on not being used to doing this on-line (generational thing I guess); so a bit more feedback would have been appreciated (like I received your files, your check, etc.)
Filed my first ever 1040 tax form with her! She is the best. Made sure what kind of forms I had so I can file it into my 1040 form. I highly recommend her!
Our previous accountant left abruptly and really messed up our books right before tax season. Greg came in and not only fixed previous errors, but was able to learn the business and get us caught up in time for our CPA. Now we will be working on stream lining the accounting department and minimizing costs. Hes on time, professional and fits right in with our employees. Its a big load off my back knowing my books are caught up and correct.
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.
Noella was punctual and very professional. We are expecting to call on her again next year when it is tax time. We couldn't have asked for more.
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.
Rahim was very nice, professional and helpful! He answered every question I had thoroughly and made the whole tax preparation process smooth, easy, and enjoyable. He is clear, concise, and very accurate with his work and I would recommend him to anyone!
Safwat is a true professional who is techincal when it comes to details. He is excellent is customer satisfaction and listens carefully to his client needs. I would absolutely recommend him for anyone seeking tax/accounting advice.
Always helpful and guides menthrough the process. I hate tax time and you make it painless.
I got my personal and business taxes filed with Farshad. He was very professional and helped me maximize my deductions. If I were to do them myself I wouldn't have gotten nearly as much money back. I will definitely work with Farshad again next tax season!
Paras quickly determined my needs (even though I didn’t have a clue!) Shot off a business tax return to the federal government for all three of our partners, gave each of us a schedule k to file withour personal taxes, and gave recommendations for future compliance- He did this all for what he quoted on-line. I could not be happier with the service he provided!
I'm the CEO of a 1 1/2 year old start-up. I originally reached out to JumpStart CPAs for Tax Return services, but quickly realized after communicating with Cimmer that I needed much more than that! I needed an Accounting system in order to properly capture my financial transactions, I needed separate business bank accounts, a payroll service and retirement planning just to name a few!!! Cimmer was able to help me with all of these things, and the Tax return ended up being a very small part of the service she provides. She was able to set up my books and work remotely, and we send data over the internet so it's very efficient. I now have access to my financial and cash flow data all the time and I can make business decisions about the future instead of just recording what happened in the past. JumpStart CPAs is more expensive than others who might be quoting for a similar service, but you get what you pay for!! I am so thankful I found JumpStart CPAs. My business performance is improving now because I understand what's going on! I now have a real Business Advisor, not "just" an Accountant.
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
I had such a great experience! I was a little nervous, but the process was made so simple. The customer service was both professional and friendly. My tax professional was knowledgeable, and helped get me an extra $1000! They even have a student discount! I had a very pleasant experience, and would highly recommend!
Karen Hess did my taxes which included self employment income, investments, Social security, and W2 in a thorough, professional manor. And though the work would have been more expensive with her firm, she did it for the price quoted on Thumbtack.
I got my taxes done here and they saved me a ton of money. Def coming back
