Having little to know experience with accounting, Madison put my mind at ease and she has far exceeded my expectations! Highly recommend her!Jan 1, 2021Verified

My meeting with the McCarthy group was excellent. As a treasurer of a nonprofit organization, I not only appreciated Madison’s accounting knowledge but also her level of technology skills. Madison provided me with specific feedback that has helped me to resolve some issues with Quick Books and she offered to help me streamline my work. In addition, Madison indicated that she intended to look more into the program that I am working with and email me more tips. I was very happy to know that her service provided me with next steps at a very reasonable cost! I absolutely plan to reach out to her again in the near future to continue to improve my skills and understanding about QB.Dec 18, 2020Verified

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience working with Madison. I have a young business (in my 2nd year) and she has help me so much with cleaning up my books and filing last years taxes. She is very detail oriented, knows what questions to ask, speaks to me in a way that I'm able to understand and follow, and so much more! If you have the opportunity to work with her you should not pass it up! Seriously. I feel very grateful to have come across her and I'm excited about how she will help me develop a financially sustainable business.Nov 8, 2020Verified

Entrepreneur Be Aware. Maddy is an individual with a split personality. One part is friendly and understanding to the tasks at hand and the other part has zero communication skills and isn't a leader in communicating options and steps that one should take to solved technical situations that may present. She signed on to file and organize my finances while in the process of purchasing a home, pressure was mounting for both myself and Mortgage Broker to deliver results to the underwriter, a simple Profit and Loss Sheet she couldn't calmly express to me wasn't in her field of expertise instead she snapped, and said I will fire you as a client, and also stated I will fire you and then hung up the phone on me. Maddy you work for me it's not the other way around. I just met you on Thumbtack and hired you instantly thinking we connected well for the work, it was quite a shock to see an unprofessional side of you that was so ugly and uncalled for. In a situation where someone is buying a home they are going through a lot of pressure and from the email I sent to you if you felt you wasn't able to provide me with that type of work what one would expect for a CPA to do is to guide me to the right steps to take and even if I needed to hire another CPA to complete the P&L sheet that was needed to finalize my home purchasing plan. I sure do hope whoever is reading this be extremely careful on how to do business with you but in life we meet people for a season or a reason and my dear a season is what you turned out to be. My friendly advise, learn customer service technics, we haven't even met for more then a week there for I would never come at you on an aggressive manner demanding you provide me services that if I had known wasn't part of your work criteria. Good luck to you and to those who elected to do business with you...They are in for quite a Surprise!Jan 5, 2021VerifiedThe McCarthy Group, LLC (MCG)'s reply
I work WITH my clients, not FOR them. My position to terminate the engagement early was an ethical decision based on a number of misrepresentations, unreasonable expectations, lack of boundaries, and general attitude I was your assistant. You are the second client in 21 years that I have ever terminated an engagement with. There were too many factors that weren't adding up for me - both from the perspective of a tax lawyer and auditor. I won't even align my experience with the IRS to this. But, I am truly sorry things ended in the manner in which they did; I also felt a great vibe with you on that initial call when we whipped out a balance sheet for the mortgage company (for no cost). Just because I just wanted to help since I'd been in the position of buying a first home with a tiny baby; I was highly sympathetic. Since your deadline for closing passed not long ago - on what I learned was a rental property and not a personal residence - I have looked back and hoped that you still closed on the property successfully. Almost 2 months have passed and I have no frustration at this point, but since you would prefer to beat on my reputation, here are the facts I have documented without any emotion involved: - I was very communicative and responsive to your texts. 90%+ of texts were answered in under 10 minutes. Some in under 1 minute. - It was represented to me that you were buying a first home which turned out not to be true. It was a rental property which was evidenced by the email you forwarded me from your mortgage company. - You asked me to write a comfort letter to the mortgage company ensuring your solvency based on tax returns I had no original support for. I gave the mortgage company a very conservative letter based explicitly on empirical evidence from partial financial data I requested from you, and filled the letter with disclaimers because I told you I could not provide you exactly what you were looking for. You and I had this conversation Christmas Eve after I already told you I was OOO for the day, finishing my Christmas shopping for my kids. You indicated to me that you absolutely needed the letter by 5 PM on Christmas Eve. So I then called your contact at the mortgage company ASAP in order to make sure we were all on the same page so I could close the matter - all the while sitting completely on a shelf in the toy section of a craft store so people could get by. - You forwarded an email thread perhaps accidentally, from your prior CPA that admonished you. You threatened to sue him after using information in a return you provided. I flagged this as a point of conversation with you because it was very concerning. From an auditor's perspective, this very situation is always a cause for concern and documented in professional literature. - The mortgage company was requesting AUDITED financial statements in their email, and not a simple Profit and Loss. There are miles of difference between the two requests, and the audit takes over a month at a minimum to complete for a tiny company because of documentation requirements. - You cited my children and my parenting style in your angry comments.

Ms. McCarthy was available and able to answer all of my questions. I learned quite a bit from her through this experience. She finished the work ahead of the deadline and continued to be patient with me when I was the one holding things up.Jan 10, 2021
