I used to do my own taxes, thinking I was saving money on not using an accounting firm or professional CPA. I thought I was too small to need professional help and expertise, but Patrick Graham saved me hundreds of dollars over what I was going to do for myself. The questions he knew to ask and the knowledge he had made all the difference for me. Hiring a professional is money well spent for now and the future.
I had used TurboTax before for preparing my taxes but this year, we had some financial changes and no matter which way I entered our information, it showed that we would owe a significant amount of money to the IRS. I definitely felt in over my head and unqualified to file our taxes. I spoke with Melody Ipolito of Kmetz, Elwell, Graham & Associates, Melody reassured me that the cost of engaging their firm was much more reasonable than most people expect. I brought all of my tax information to their office and not only was Brian Elwell very professional, he prepared our returns and asked for some additional information that TurboTax did not ask for. After completing our tax return Brian let me know that were entitled to a REFUND and Melody was right, their fees were much less than I thought they would be! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
