"We have been in a mess. We had to leave our home and most of our belongings due to a gas leak and mold infection in a rental home. After staying in hotels for 6" months, our savings has been depleted. On top of that Mom has been very ill due to a rare condition that causes toxic reactions UV light, both sun light and indoor lighting. Well we have been behind on our taxes due to this craziness and we just moved to
once we found an apt. Both
have been a great help.
personally came to our apt to pick up our paperwork for the taxes, they gave us a discount after hearing our ordeal, and allowed us to pay them as we could. I could not ask for better service, they went above and beyond to help us and we could not have done it without their accommodations. We will definitely come back for our future taxes.

"Excellent professional friendly and an expert. Answered all questions and concerns with professionalism. Highly recommended. Also in a convenient easily accessible" location. If you use one of the tax (chains) get out of doing that and see Mt

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.


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.

Accounting reviews in Gallipolis


My wife and I contacted
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
(AJM Bookkeeping) based on very positive reviews listed on Angie's List. He was willing and able to help us with a complicated tax year, especially regarding state taxes. During 2014, we moved from Illinois to North
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
in mid-year. We sold our home in Illinois and purchased a home in North
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
, resulting in complicated real estate and pension taxes. We purchased a new vehicle as part of the move and we both turned 65. Thankfully,
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
was able to sort it all out. It took about 2 hours before our taxes we filed electronically. We would highly recommend
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
for tax preparation.
- Dennis W.

Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
is a professional that I highly trust. We have used Kurts services for several years. We moved out of GA 2 years ago and now we mail our information in to
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
and he takes care of it. We talk one or two times during the process, he makes you very comfortable when you do business with him. He also makes himself available throughout the year to advise on potential tax implications of financial transactions that you are considering.
- Bill B.

Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
is the answer to why I DO NOT and NEVER will use Turbo Tax again. My wife and I are returning customers and we are always looking forward to tax season to have a sit down with
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
. However, you should know that if you are a repeat customer he offers you the option to send in your tax information to him without needing a formal sit down. Understand this is a friendly option and not a formal request. He truly cares about his customers and always looks out for the little guy. If you do decide to go in for the appointment it is always a nice warm welcome and friendly conversation whereas most other accountants just sit there and have you watch them work on your taxes in silence with the occasional head popping up to ask a question.
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
is full of life, loves good conversation and loves to save you money. Let me say that last part again….
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
LOVES to save you money! He even puts happy faces next to areas you saved money in and encourages you to continue to plan for retirement. You should also know that
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
is knowledgeable and honest. He is not going to have you run out and by a bunch of office supplies and ask you to do an hour of work from home using items you bought just so you can claim it on your taxes as a work expense.
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
’t laugh; I know others who used such accountants that would do sketchy things like that.
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
’s name is on these taxes and he takes his work serious he would never put you or himself in jeopardy for a few measly pennies. Secondly he never charges you up front for his work, he charges you once the work is done. I have dealt with other accountants that demanded payment upfront before even taking their computers out of sleep mode.
On that note, this year my mother-in-law and her son were in a bit of frenzy. My father-in-law was suddenly stricken ill and is now under constant care. They had to go through a lot of financial hoops to get approved for Medicaid. It was a nightmare involving lawyers and hospital fights on top of the uncertainty of his condition. Mom was so worried about the financial impact she would endure on taxes we told her to go see
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
took excellent care of my mother-in-law. He calmed her nerves and walked her through everything he needed in order to file her taxes. She swore that she would owe money and was fearful because of all the bills she had endured to date.
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
explained to her she was going to be fine and everything would work out. In the end, she got money back! It was a small
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
for all of us with having such an unexpected ride this past year. In addition my brother-in-law is a fulltime college student and was surprised to learn
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
doesn’t charge full time college students for their tax returns. To top it off, even though we told him it was not necessary, he gave my wife and I a $25 referral credit for having my mother-in-law come in to see him. Here is a man who was doing all of us the favor by helping my mother-in-law during a tricky tax situation and still gave us a referral credit and didn’t even charge my brother-in-law for his taxes! Needless to say, he gained two more customers for life.
Now I assume most of you are wondering why I would make such a bold statement as to say
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
is the answer to why I do not use services like turbo tax. Our tax return for 2014 was easy this year. We have only one income, no children, we
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
’t own a house, nor do we have any major contributions to stocks or charities. We take the standard deduction and do not own any back taxes or missed filings. We could have easily downloaded turbo tax and plugged in a few numbers and viola taxes filed. However, when working with
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
you will learn the value of a dollar.
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
charges more than a do it yourself tax program, but those programs
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
’t work nearly as hard as
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
does for you. Turbo tax helps you file your taxes once a year, but the following year you wonder if you are going to owe taxes or not until you plug in the numbers again. With
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
he works for you pretty much all year around and you know where you stand on taxes before getting your W2 for the year. Last year
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
did our taxes and gave us advice on increasing our withholdings as so we do not wind up paying more in taxes than usual. By
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
he sent an email asking for our W2s to do a tax projection and he noticed we were way paying way too much in taxes as it was.
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
immediately requested we increase our withholdings and beef up our 401k contributions. After we did the requested changes we noticed we were getting an extra $90 in our pay check per month. He predicted that we would still wind up getting a certain dollar amount back and he missed the exact number by just a few dollars. The return was also a substantial one and helped to pay off our credit card debt and finish paying off a new car we bought 3 years ago.
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
also assisted us with some questions concerning our
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
accounts and all our questions regarding taxes throughout the year. So for $300 or so, I got tax advice, a mid-year projection, advice on increasing or decreasing withholdings, a referral credit for a relative, a college student’s taxes done for free, an extra $90 per month in our paycheck in the last half of the year, and a hefty tax return to boot. Turbo tax gives me a green or red number to tell me I owe or not. Final Score
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
10….Turbo Tax 0. The value of a dollar goes to
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
In the end you can pay Turbo Tax $100 to file your taxes and worry every March if you will owe or not and then worry every April if you filed everything right as to not get an audit. Or you can pay
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
a bit more, but have the peace of mind that someone is looking out for you the whole year, a service that not even the most sophisticated software can do. My advice, put your trust in
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
he will treat you like you are his #1 customer.

- David Z.

He took our taxes an then disappeared. He never went back to his office or returned calls. As we went by his office for months we found several people with the same problem. He never has called to this day
- Timothy H.

Mr. Kanakya was very flexible in finding a time to meet that worked for my difficult schedule. He was prompt, knowledgeable, and professional and answered my questions in an expedient fashion. Prior to our meeting he had given me an expected fee for the consult, which was right on target. In addition, he provided some additional information via email following our consult at no additional charge. I will definitely use Mr. Kanakya for my tax needs/questions in the future and recommend his services to others.
- Jamie D.

I've had such negative experiences with accountants in the last few years that I couldn’t be more THRILLED to have found
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
at AccountSmart! He worked with me to put my books in order for year end and working with him was a pleasure. He’s professional, kind, and timely. He has a good understanding of the needs of small business owners and was able to be flexible and tailor his offerings to my needs because of it. I've had accountants who refused to use Quickbooks online, or didn't have experience with it, but that was not an issue with
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
. They are willing to work remotely with you, or come to you if needed.
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
also has a great network of other reliable professionals to connect with and as a small business owner without a lot of time and experience, that was a huge plus! I can’t recommend
Gallipolis Accountants Provider Name Locked
highly enough and I will definitely be using them again in the near future!

- Pamela J.

The very first appointment got off to a shaky start. The CPA we were to meet with had gotten our appointment time confused and was not in the office when we arrived. However when he came in he was very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. He also discounted his charge, recognizing that our time is valuable. Since that first appointment, everything has gone very smoothly. When we call, the call is either handled immediately or if we leave a message, the call is returned promptly. They have been able to save us a considerable amount of money on our personal taxes and we are planning on having them prepare our business taxes next year.
- Charlie S.

What a great guy! He did a thorough job and was helpful in both answering my questions and gave LOTS of suggestions. The outcome was better than expected. He definitely knows his stuff, and is super nice throughout the process.
