I know we have an accountant now. We didn't know what we were missing but Alan made a usually stressful process very easy. He gave us feedback promptly, worked to understand our industry. I am very glad so far and already working on taxes for 2020. Thanks Alan

They don’t respond within an acceptable time frame < 2 weeks. I expect professionals to respond within 3 days even if it’s to state they’re busy and will get back to me later. They don't even call me back when I call their office. If I hadn’t reviewed the returns they would’ve cost me $10K+ in extra taxes that I didn’t owe. (taxed backdoor roth conversion, double taxed ESPP disqualified position, etc…) They don’t do a good job filling out the returns and different forms, and I had to correct several of their inaccuracies and mistakes that cost me several hours per return review. An amended return shouldn’t take 6+ months if all its documents were submitted in early January. And, they exceeded the timeline they gave me for the 2022 return and caused me a lot of stress on tax day. They lied to me on several occasions. They don’t respond to my tax questions. And I can’t trust any timeline they give me because they’ve proven they don’t stick to them. A CPA should be a professional that saves stress, time, and money. That wasn’t my experience working with them on all fronts. It cost me a lot of stress, time, and money. To be honest, they made several mistakes that indicate that they are not careful or accurate accountants that I'd ever trust with my taxes.

Hello Leen, I do truly apologize for the delayed timeframe on your amended tax return. Your particular return had very unusual circumstances and forms that required additional time and we never want to rush anything as to miss something important. I honestly do not see how we could have potentially cost you 10k in extra taxes however, I do know we should have completed this return sooner than it was. Once again, we value you and your feedback and we always want every client to have a 5 star experience so either way we truly regret this was not the case for you. We truly believe your experience was an anomaly from our usual standards and we would love the opportunity to make this right by you moving forward. All the best and please let me know if you need anything.

I’ve been a small business owner for some time trying to hack it on my own using turbo tax. I’ve been very intimidated to hire a professional since I felt I didn’t have perfect records and, quite frankly, have had no idea what I’m doing in reference to my taxes. Alan not only made me super comfortable but had me leaving our meeting feeling more knowledgeable, prepared and even looking forward to doing my taxes! He helps with goal setting, educating you on your best options, and future planning for your business and financial endeavors. I was not expecting these bonuses in the slightest, but he truly goes the extra mile. I must say that I also appreciate the organized, clear tasks and updates i receive via his app… as a newbie, I’d be beyond overwhelmed without it. Thanks for helping me and making tax season digestible and painless as possible! Excited for my business to grow with Alan on my team!

Alan has been amazing! Due to multiple different jobs, getting married last year, & complicated taxed income, I KNEW I needed to hire a CPA. I don’t have a ton of knowledge on taxes and know that without Alan I’d be losing out on a lot of money. I really love the app he uses to organize all the documentation. It’s easy to navigate and has easy to read to do lists so that we can do our part as the client so that he can get to work on the return. Would highly recommend and will definitely be a returning customer 😊

The absolute best! Top tier professional, an actual college graduate CPA. who completed 7 years worth of my back taxes. He answered all of my questions and explained everything that needed to be done. He completed all past years returns in a timely manner and his fees are reasonable.

FAQs

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

    For my Tax Prep clients, I use a simple pricing structure where I only charge for each form that we file. That way you are not being charged for something that doesn't pertain to your tax situation. This way I make sure that value is added to you, the client. I make sure not to nickel and dime any of my clients and always try to be value added to where you typically receive more in knowledge and pertinent information on your returns and consultations than the fee that you are paying me.

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

    I always make sure to have an in depth meeting with my new clients so that I can fully understand their specific tax situation. Every clients taxes and businesses are different so its my job to listen and take note of your situation to ensure that we come up with the very best tax or business strategy for your specific needs.

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

    I have been preparing tax returns for well over a decade. I also not only have a Masters in Business Administration but also a CPA license. I believe this equips me to be your best ally in all things business and tax. I am one of the rare few professionals that possess the experience, the advanced degree, and professional certifications to help empower you in your taxes and business.
