Our offices provide professional service within a family atmosphere. We believe each client should walk out with the experience of being educated about their tax status and treated with courtesy and respect. With that philosophy, a vast majority of our clients are referred to us by long time satisfied customers. Because many of our tax preparers have been with the firm for many years, many clients have come to trust and asked for us by first name. That long relationship gives our preparers intimate knowledge of the tax issues clients faced over the years and adjust as their situation changes. Some of our clients are third generation clients and remember coming to our offices when they were children. Our clients are from every walk of life and every income level: from people just starting a career, starting a corporation, buying a first home, to retirees, or people changing jobs. Each client should receive premium services without the premium prices.
