We have used John's services in preparing our complex tax returns for the past 14 years. He is diligent and thorough in helping us get tax refunds almost every year. We have been audited by ...

the IRS 3 times and each time we passed because John is conservative in terms of what tax deductions are allowed. He is always quick to answer any questions that we have. Usually John has our draft tax returns done within 24-48 hours. I definitely highly recommend John because he has demonstrated to us his integrity and trustworthiness in preparing our tax returns for many years, and we are very happy with the results
