"We just moved to Connecticut and needed help to file our taxes from 2 states, deduct moving costs, and home office expenses. I didn't know anyone in the area" so I joined Angie's List, and found
through other reviews on this site.
was very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. She answered all our questions, provided guidance, and completed our 2 state and federal tax returns quickly. She was very easy to communicate with and answered emails promptly. The cost was very reasonable. I recommend
to anyone looking for professional tax preparation service in the greater New Haven area.

"Our appointment was made over the phone about a week in advance. They were ready and prepared to work upon our prompt arrival. Having prepared our returns in past" years, they were familiar with our income and expenses. They pointed out large differences from last year's returns as they reviewed this year's information. Within an hour, our returns were ready to be transmitted. The work was professionally done with updated software on hand. They are very knowledgeable and capable tax preparers. Even though their work area looks cluttered, they perform their work efficiently, having all the necessary materials and tools readily available.

Filing your own taxes? Avoid these 5 mistakes

Before you hit send on your 2013 tax filing, make sure you've considered these common mistakes Angie's List experts routinely see individuals make.

Accountants

When it comes to doing your taxes and finances, one of the biggest questions that often comes up is whether you should hire an accountant or just handle the matter yourself. Although accountants can be pricey, they often provide many benefits and protections that you can't get by doing the books yourself.

There are more and more ways to file your taxes, so speak with your accountant and find out what filing method will be most beneficial to you. (Photo by Katie Jacewicz)
Accountants/Tax Consultants

On this episode of Chat with the Experts, Kiel Hauck talks with Marc Adams about the best methods for filing your taxes and answers common tax questions.

The deal LAST WEEK was $178.00 and

Brighton Accountants Provider Name Locked
-Mar a try. BAD DECISION! We went to our appointment and I immediately informed Mr.
Brighton Accountants Provider Name Locked
that I was referred by Angies List so I was at least expecting to pay the advertised fee of $178.00. MY MISTAKE WAS NOT PAYING THROUGH ANGIES LIST! Our filings were an uncomplicated Short Federal Form and the Standard Ohio State Form. We did not have to file City as we are in a township. Mr
Brighton Accountants Provider Name Locked
then charged us $200.00. After our taxes were complete, we started hearing the SALES PITCHES for Life Insurance and Investment Services. On our way out, Mr.
Brighton Accountants Provider Name Locked
asked that we bring in our 2013 taxes for him to review. I then thought that maybe that is why he charged us more than the advertised rate last week? I called him this morning to just ask him to please check to see if the amount of taxes that we paid to the Federal Government in 2013 was correct and I got a
Brighton Accountants Provider Name Locked
, I AM BUSY, but don't worry, we can refile anytime within 3 years. I called first thing in the morning since I was concerned that if we had to amend 2013 we would also have to amend 2014 if that was already electronically filed. I asked again if he could just check our numbers for taxes paid in 2013 and he again stated that he was too busy. Truthfully, I am not really sure why he wanted our 2013 taxes?! The nice lady at the desk verified our numbers for our Federal Withholding and called me back in minutes. She Gets a Thumbs Up! Both receptionists at the front desk were courteous and polite. The service that we received from Mr.
Brighton Accountants Provider Name Locked
was quite the opposite. He ran late for our appointment and there were not any arm chairs in the waiting area for my husband who is disabled and requires such to be able to sit. So, my husband had to wait standing up the whole time that Mr.
Brighton Accountants Provider Name Locked
was late. Mr.
Brighton Accountants Provider Name Locked
was polite enough through asking for our information and filing our taxes, but the SALES PITCHES were not appreciated. Again, I am not sure why he wanted to see our 2013 tax returns, so after the receptionist answered my question, we picked the forms back up. TOO BUSY is not what a new client wants to hear. Being Overcharged what the advertised price was last week when we went in last week is well-------SOMEONE WHO I WOULD NOT TRUST OR GO TO AGAIN.

I started using
Brighton Accountants Provider Name Locked
many years ago because the founder
Brighton Accountants Provider Name Locked
was a good friend of a friend. I knew very little about accounting and bookkeeping, but thought it a
Brighton Accountants Provider Name Locked
for everyone for me to use his new firm. We are the type of clients that do not need to talk to our accountant until it is tax time and we need to file our personal and business tax returns. We rely on them to tell us what to file, when to file, and to make sure that we are in compliance. I over the years have been involved in multiple businesses and have transferred every one of them to
Brighton Accountants Provider Name Locked
. Everything seemed to be going fine until a couple of years ago I would find them less and less responsive when I would call for a tax question. I really began to feel that I was not a valued customer, and when I would confront him directly, he would make me feel that I was just bothering him and was causing him to

valuable billing time. Finally, last year,
Brighton Accountants Provider Name Locked
told me that I was welcome to look for another accountant. I was actually relieved, as the tension was getting worse and I was noticing that my taxes and my needs were just getting ignored. I would call and have to wait for over two weeks to get an answer, and would have to send multiple emails asking them to please just respond to my questions. September, we finally found a new accounting firm and sent a request to please discontinue my service and stop taking the monthly payments from our accounts. I sent the notice to him and the office manager that handles the AR and never heard back for several weeks. I did not even think about this until in December we were reconciling the checking account and noticed that the payments of $455 per month were still being deducted from my account. So on December 17th, I sent them another email telling them that I thought there was a mistake and to please refund all of the money that they had wrongly taken. I had no response to my request for them to refund the $1365 that they had wrongly taken from my account. I assumed that everyone was on a holiday for Christmas and New Year, and waited until January 12 to tell them again that it was getting ridiculous that there was no response from anyone in the company to address my concern. On January 13th I got a response from the manager saying that have sent my bank the money, less a $650 accounting bill that was for another company that I had somehow missed. Understanding that I have no idea that I owed them anything from October 2014, I was shocked to find out that they did not ask me to pay the bill or if I would allow them to offset the amount that was in question. I told them clearly that I did not agree with that, and that I needed the money in the business that it correctly belonged to be replaced, and if the other bill was still open, to call me or give me more details so I could find out if it was actually owed and make the payment. After being with them for about 20 years, and still having other business accounts not yet transferred out, they could not trust me to replace the money for the $650 that they were supposedly owed. They told me to just go ahead and write my other business a check for the refund. The unprofessionalism, lack of communication, and disregard for proper procedure caused me to immediately remove all of my business with them. They refused to refund my money and have not responded other than to say they see nothing wrong with taking my money which was unauthorized and keeping it to cover another bill that is a separate company with different partners. I have went ahead and paid the $650 and told them to replace the money into the proper account, as I am not allowed to co-mingle the funds that are in the separate businesses. I still have not gotten back a response or a confirmation that they have replaced the money that they wrongfully have taken. My advice to anyone looking to use

They were very good. They seemed very professional. When they told me exactly what I needed to know I wound up doing it myself. Basically they were not able to do what I want. But if I was going to use a tax service I would use them. They seemed very knowledgeable. I will definitely use them again if I need any tax work.
