    James is an amazing tax consultant! I asked him to do 3 years of taxes for me on April 8, 2016. He was very informative and got all of the taxes completed by the April 15th deadline! I definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a very good tax consultant!

    I had been doing my own taxes for years until I decided I couldn't keep up with all of the changes, so I went to My Tax Dog and he did such a great job that I'll go back to him from now on. Saves me the stress! Very knowledgeable and professional. Highly recomended!!

    I was lucky to find Mr. Peterson. I turned to My Tax Dog to help me with an unusual (at least for me!) and complicated tax matter after I'd stumped HR Block. Mr. Peterson responded quickly to my inquiry and knew exactly what needed to be done. The tax return involved an estate with some sticky family issues, but Mr. Peterson dealt with the entire situation with great professionalism and tact. He was a constant reassurance to me, patient with all my questions and confident in his work. His fees are reasonable and he was flexible with my schedule. He brought the work in on-time and as-promised. Mr. Peterson is EXACTLY what you need if you are looking for an expert's personal attention to your taxes, whether simple or complicated. I look forward to working with him again and could not recommend My Tax Dog more highly. Arlington, TX

    Mr. Petersen was very helpful and informative about our church needs. He helped us set up our independent in organization. Gave me an extension letter for the comptroller office. To make sure everything was done right, in order. I like his spirit on how he responded to me. Just so helpful in everyway. I would refer him to others. Blessings!

    We have used James for three years now and could not be happier. He is prompt in preparation and responding to my questions. He has handled our Federal, TX State, and CA State returns with ease. We have used several accountants and professional services in the past, James is far and away the best.

    James helped me with my business & personal income taxes. He was very knowledgeable with all aspects of my business and he was available practically anytime I needed to talk to him. i am very pleased with the work he performed and the speed in which he completed it. He was also helpful with bookkeeping for future years. I would recommend him to anyone.
  • Casi R. Mar 19, 2015
    James is awesome! My dad found him while looking for for someone to do our first business taxes. He asked all the questions he would need, to get as many tax credits as possible. This guy did his research and knows his stuff! Since H&R block ripped me off and took so much of my tax return, several years before, I have been doing them myself. I didn't trust anyone else to do them for me. I was a little hesitant when my dad asked me to let him do my taxes because of the H & R Block experience, but I'm a Daddys girl so I said I would try it. I'm glad I did! A lot less stress on me and he knew more about it than I ever did. Thank you, James, for putting my trust back in tax services! I am a customer for life!

    To start, I graduated college not too long ago and received a 1099 this year from the state of Texas for my forgiven school loans. I worked hard to finish school in time and meeting the requirements to have my loans forgiven. What I did not realize was that I would be receiving a 1099 for the amount I got forgiven as taxable income. Probably silly on my part in hindsight, but being relatively young and taxes not playing a huge part in my life as I had never had to file alone etc. I was naive. I was in complete shock. I'm clearly not an accountant and I was in dire need of help because I was looking at owing in a huge amount. I mean HUGE amount. It was going to deplete me of my savings and set me further back than I wanted to be being fresh out of school. I went to James explaining my situation with all the details possible looking for answers or a solution. He gave me both. Through phone calls and emails, I was able to do my taxes at convenient times for me because James was flexible with working with my hours, which was great. I had a huge pit in my stomach over my taxes and my situation. He spent time researching the matter of the loan forgiveness and my current situation. Like I said previously, I am no accountant. I was blind to see where certain numbers fall and what my self employment did for my taxes. James called me one morning explaining to me my tax filings and where I eventually stood. I went from having to pay in thousands to a way smaller amount. I was amazed and in a good shock at this point. I will not be going to anyone else for my taxes. James worked through my unique situation and walked me through financial lessons to help me understand and learn. James spends a great amount of attention to the fine details to make sure you are getting the best filing to your situation possible. I would not go to another accountant because I am very happy with the great service James gives to his clients and the knowledge he possesses. He's not your average accountant and he really cares more about his clients than just the number of clients he has. I highly recommend James Peterson, especially if you are in a financial situation that you do not know how to navigate. He will guide you through it with the best outcome possible.

    This tax preparer talks to much. And he's not professional. Take your business elsewhere.
