We couldn't have done it without you.

Thank you! Since March, you have been such an incredible support system to us and each other. We are so impressed and thankful for your efforts during the most difficult tax season (and it ain't over yet!) we've ever encountered. You're the reason we love our clients!


These are unprecedented times and it's so obvious that kindness is the only way it's going to work. It's obvious because you have been so kind - deliveries, treats, notes and phone calls, and most importantly, patience. You haven't just been kind to us, though. You've been kind to each other, too, by allowing us to work to meet the needs of other clients who were (and still are) struggling to feed their families, keep their employees on the payroll, and meet demands unlike any they've ever known. 


Because of the challenges faced by so many of our clients, we've had a lot less time to do what used to be our main work: preparing tax returns. It's OK, it's what we're here for, and we appreciate your trust in our ability to be a financial guide right now. If you didn't need us to serve you in this capacity, we (and our clients in crisis because of COVID) greatly appreciate your patience as you await the completion of your return if you were extended. We are still working non-stop to meet your needs.

No matter how your needs define it,
we help you achieve it.
