KPR: They've Got Your Back!I'm happy to share what a helpful and positive accountant (and person!) I have found in Ken Rapoport, CPA. He not only provided QuickBooks files for when they prepared my tax returns for my business, but when I changed to being an SCorp, he took the time to explain to me the differences between being an LLC and an SCorp: In terms I could easily understand. And he let me ask as many questions as I wanted, which was a joy for me, as I like to learn and understand. You won't get service like Ken's In this day and age from a book, a video, or anything else. Ken is a Real Human Being, and I like his down-to-earth way of explaining even the most complex subjects about businesses or taxes.I sleep easy at night knowing that KPR prepared an immaculate tax return for my SCorp, along with sending me other additional tax forms that I needed to mail--because they are that good. They provide me with a "Taxpayer's Copy" of everything they give me to file. Big THANKS, KPR, for all you do for me and my business! Gina Kotz, President, WordPrep, Inc.
