Years ago, Ken helped me with some difficulties with the IRS. He patiently worked his way through the issue and was able to reduce the amount owed and have the penalty waived. And Ken’s charge was very reasonable. Since then, my partner and I have over the last 8 years engaged Ken’s services for our annual taxes. Because of Ken’s extensive tax expertise, we always get a refund much larger than if we had used TurboTax, even allowing for his fee. Ken is also personable, attentive, and most importantly, honest. I highly recommend Ken!
Thank you very much for helping me with my taxes last year. I have not used an accountant before, and I must thank you for being so thorough, organized, and resourceful. I didn’t know what to expect, but was very pleasantly surprised. You are obviously very good at what you do! Also I appreciate your help amending last year’s return to maximize my refund. It helped make a big difference! 🙂 All the best to you!
Ken Rapoport has been my tax account for more than ten years. He’s professional, thorough and extremely detail-oriented. I’m a freelance writer, and would be hard-pressed to find another CPA with the wealth of knowledge and experience to help me get the most out of my tax return. I’d highly recommend Ken to anyone looking for the best return on their money.
Ken does stellar work. I highly recommend him for accounting, taxes, business advisory. He and his team are professional and have tackled many of my accounting needs. It’s rare today, to find a person that will deep dive as opposed the shallow depth of H&R block. Keep up the great work.
I cannot provide a quote without looking at everything the client has, the progress of their bookkeeping, the volume of their information and evaluation of everything needed to be done. So we would first have a meeting to determine a game plan. Our work is generally done hourly except for the instance of a personal tax return, which would be completed in a finite period of time. We will do our utmost to please the client and come to a reasonable price for our accounting and tax services.
