I can not say enough about how great it has been working with Ace Advisory, not only on our taxes but also on our quest to acquire a Home Mortgage Loan (which requires constant prompt responses from one's accountant). I am convinced that without the support of Ace Advisory's instant responses to our Mortgage Bank's requests, we would not have had such amazing success!! Atabu Otobo's vast knowledge of Tax Regulations, Financial Advice and also his innate understanding of our needs has been priceless. We are so thankful that we found Ace Advisory and look forward to working with them long-term as we build for our future!

Our charitable organization was desperately behind with filing our tax returns and we had a difficult time getting quotes for service by an accountant. Apparently Non-Profit tax returns are not especially valuable business in the accounting world. ACE did reply and was chosen based reviews, location and professionalism. We are so happy and look forward to a long standing relationship with ACE Advisory Mangement. Thank you!
Thank you, Carrie for your great review I look forward to working next year and toward a long relationship

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

    I have a flat price for a basic federal and state return. There is an additional fee if you have multiple state returns and/or need to file a Schedule C D, E or K1. Some customers qualify for the standard flat rate. Business entities such as LLC, C , SCorp and partnership have their own fee structures. There is a $20 referral fee discount/ gift card

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

    If a client is locally based, I always welcome the opportunity to meet in person and establish a personal relationship from the very start. Otherwise, I am happy to work with a client on a virtual basis, communicating via email, text and phone( FaceTime, Skype), if available. To facilitate the sharing of your sensitive tax and financial documents, I will send you a link for an encrypted Encyro secured portal where you can upload your documents as they become available. After I have had a chance to review them, I will come back to you with follow up questions. For tax clients, when the final returns are ready for your review, I send them to you. After you are satisfied and have signed the electronic filing authorizations, I will go ahead and e-file your returns. For financial planning/retirement planning clients, I will prepare a detailed analysis laying out your options and my suggested recommendations, followed by a phone call to walk through the analysis. I typically remain available for the following three months to answer any follow up questions you may have.

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

    Like other profession to stay ahead of current trends and regulations, I am required to take CE classes yearly to stay informed of new tax regulation. I believe learning and education is an going process; hence i am always taking classes to stay abreast in my various field. Previously, I took a tax course at H&RBlock, Baruch College, Cambridge Business Institute and online tax course. I have my Enrolled Agent designation
