    Fantastic accountant! Definitely hire him!
    Mark is the man! Very knowledgeable and helpful for filing taxes. I had to file for two years, and he really took care of everything and made me feel comfortable. I am in sales, own a house, have school loans, etc and he was able to tell me what information I needed. I will definitely be using him next year for my taxes and for any other financial services I need! All around, great guy & can't go wrong!

    I think I found a Go-to Tax guy!
    Mark was great to work with. Quick communicator, seemed to know his profession well and even gave good advice regardless of my probablity of return. When I asked questions, he answered patiently and as thoroughly as he could.

    Professional and knowledgeable
    This year was a little more complicated for us tax-wise so I tried Mark at MJ. He did a great job for us. Very organized and knowledgeable. We received large-scale firm quality service at a very reasonable price. We will be using him again for our taxes and I recommend him if you are looking for tax prep help.

    Great, stress-free experience!
    Mark was incredibly patient, efficient, and friendly! He took a pile of forms (multiple states + jobs) and in under two hours, turned it into a tax return. He kindly answered all of my questions (even when I asked them twice, just to be sure) and walked me through every part of my tax return. It was so great to have weeks worth of stress over with in a few hours, in the comfort of my own home. I've already recommended him to everyone I know.

    Extremely Satisfied, 5 Stars
    Mark did an excellent job for us, he came out to our house and walked me through everything. He was very thorough with explaining every part of the process and I actually learned a few things. I have two labs who are very friendly but also love attention and mark was great with them.I know this is irrelevant to having my taxes done but it made me feel like he wasn't just someone coming to file my taxes, he was very personable. I would definitely recommend Mark to anyone and he has our business going forward!

    Crisp deliverables.
    Mark was crisp and efficient. I handed him a bunch of (mostly) sorted tax-related paperwork and he sorted it all out at my house, then mailed me my returns, marked up clearly for signing and sending, about 2 weeks later. I ended up needing 2 amended returns and 4 current returns. Mark was thorough and easy to work with.

    Mark was great to work with. He responded quickly to our questions and met with us as soon as we had all of our documents in order. He took his time to walk through our return with us to ensure that he got all of the information he needed and to help us better understand our own return. We have worked with other tax preparers before but none were as thorough or helpful as Mark. After all of these years, I think we finally found a tax preparer we will look forward to working with for many years to come.

    Mark was fast and efficient, processing three years worth of taxes including multiple localities and time as a student in less than two hours and for a reasonable price. He was quick to set up an appointment and respond to emails and was very understanding during the filing process. He also processed good returns on every year. He's willing to travel which also makes him a convenient choice for tax filing. I would definitely go back for future tax resources or financial planning (another service he offers).

    Mark was the consummate professional, not only did he personally come to my home he went thru 5 yrs of current and old tax yrs I had yet to file. It took him nearly 4 hrs and when he was done he went thru each yr showing me all the specifics- wether I owed money or was getting a refund. A few days later I received 2 large envelopes that had all the years federal, state and local taxes prepared and professionally organized in binders with everything easily explained - what I needed to sign and mail etc - and of course my copies for records. I would highly recommend mark to anyone needing tax help, his fees are very reasonable and he provides outstanding service and knowledge - making him a great value to the customer. Thank you so much again Mark - sincerely Eric

    Mark is really fantastic! He is very communicative and he strives to make sure that I am aware and understand what he's doing or what I need to do when it comes to my small business taxes. He's very organized, punctual, and easy to work with. Mark really saved me on my first bout with sales tax and he went out of his way to resolve my questions and issues with the City of Pittsburgh, too. I highly recommend him!
