Introduction: Anyone can enter in data in QuickBooks, Turbotax, or H & R Block and pretend it works. It takes a professional to make it all work from beginning to end. I have over 10 years experience helping individuals and business owners complying with every hoop and hurdle they have to jump through to avoid unnecessary penalties and getting it done correctly the first time.

Individual Tax Preparation

James helped me prepare my taxes. He was fast and sufficient. He welcomed questions and did nothing rush me at all. I was so pleased that I referred my sister. She is now working with him. I will definitely hire him next tax season.

James is knowledgeable, practical, efficient, responsive, fast! I don't know why I waited so long to get some professional help with my taxes. I will use his services again and again. He provided exactly what I needed. I especially like the fact that he understood my immediate need to get the work done, and he came in ahead of schedule and at the agreed upon price!

Background Check

James Salvato


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

    Reputation is everything. I do what I can to keep my prices reasonable without giving away the farm.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Whether the client needs accounting, payroll, or taxes done, a contract must be signed and dated. That is to protect you and me and makes sure that all questions are answered.

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

    I have an MBA in Accounting from Keller Graduate School of Management. I also have a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship. Anyone can claim that they feel for the small business owner however I truly understand them. I'm also an enrolled agent licensed to practice before the IRS. Aside from signing off on financial statements, I can pretty much do everything a CPA can do, including represent you if you get audited by the IRS.
