Individual Tax Preparation

I was at a loss as to how to find a good accountant for tax season that wasn't in a big box chain, and just stumbled onto Thumbtack through a Google search. What luck, because Thumbtack put us in touch with Gerald with Tax Busters, and he was excellent. Gerald was very personable and took time to walk me and my husband through our tax return and explain exactly why we owed what we did. He also advised us on changes we could make to our retirement planning that would positively impact our tax situation. His knowledge and customer service are excellent and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who is looking for tax help.

Very good experience. He takes the time to review your return and also educates along the way. This is something you won’t find from the more expense CPA’s.

Business Tax Preparation

They were great in helping my sister get back a major return. She was able to get her roof done. We weren’t as lucky due to tax brackets but they did well in assisting us.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We have the most simple fee structure in the industry. This year at 25% off what you paid your last tax preparer. Next year the same price as long as you get us all your documentation by Valentine's Day. It's the sweetest deal in town!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Because I am a CPA I am required to take many hours of continuing education on an annual basis.

  • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

    The numbers of clients who we have gone back and amended their prior returns and gotten them thousands of dollars of otherwise overpaid taxes are too numerous to begin to mention. But anyone who has been doing their own taxes is a prime candidate.

No problem: we have pros for every job.
