DO NOT USE THIS OFFICE!
I will never use this place again. Art is old and nice, if aloof, but his office staff, including his 1st in command, Virginia, are incompetent. I've waited since April to write this review to see how things worked out, and I'm dissatisfied to the point of disgust so it's time to write the review.
My first appointment for my husband and I worked just fine. Art was kind, helpful and thorough in his questions. After that, it was just a comedy of stupidity. I never received a call from their office telling me our taxes were done (6 weeks I waited), I called several times, and was told that their system was either down, or I got voicemail (on which I left messages) and never got a return call. So, I finally went down to get my taxes on April 13th, assuming they'd be done since it had been six weeks.
I sat in the office and reviewed the taxes and found several errors for several states (we have to file in like 7 states), which I waited until they fixed, then found errors in their calculations for our estimated quarterly taxes, which I waited until they fixed. I expressed my concern to Virginia that they'd never contacted me and tax day was only 2 days away. Their office girl overheard our conversation and said there were hundreds of people she just hadn't had time to call. HUNDREDS? Is there no overtime for the tax people at tax time? Seriously? Unbelievable.
So, I paid the large fee for our taxes and left.
We sent our taxes in and waited. So far, I've gotten TWO returns BACK from two States saying we didn't submit the appropriate paperwork and we owe them thousands of dollars. The first time we got one of these state returns back, I called the office and told them and they said to scan and email the letter I received. I did just that. Then I waited a week. Nothing, no response email, no phone call, nothing. So, I emailed them again and asked what I had to do to get basic customer service from them. They replied and apologized for not checking their email and sending the documents to Virginia (not checking email???) and promised she would call me. She did not. I got an email from the office the next day with the 'missing' form and instructions to re-file the state taxes.
Now, I've gotten another state return back. I've called the office twice today and left messages with
(the same girl who doesn't call people back and doesn't check email). She assures me that Virginia is still with clients and if I don't hear from her today, it will likely be tomorrow.
also assures me that Art knows about the issues they have in the office there.
The trouble and headache this office has put us through isn't worth it. I would suggest you RUN and find another place - any other place - to get your taxes done. They are TERRIBLE with regards to correctness of returns, math, follow-up, customer service, and everything else that would make them worth using.
Of course, I didn't hear back from Virginia today. Guess I'll be going back down there in person tomorrow, to get them to do what I paid them to do 3 months ago.

is a competent professional and I will use him again. That said, buyers of this or similar promotions need to beware. The $149 may not buy you much if you have more than a basic return. My return had some complexity to it so cost much more. I think the price was fair in the end but certainly not the "deal" I had hoped for. That said, I would recommend
provided you get a quote for the real cost involved and the quote seems fair. He does good work.

Judene and
Tacoma Accountants Provider Name Locked
from
Tacoma Accountants Provider Name Locked
and Associates are the tops! I was on a condo board that used
Tacoma Accountants Provider Name Locked
and Associates as our CPA for the association. Judene and
Tacoma Accountants Provider Name Locked
were so friendly, professional, and unbelievably prompt with responding to our (many!) needs. Their rates were very reasonable. They went above and beyond just paying our bills. On several occasions, they alerted us when a bill seemed unusually high or when they noticed that we forgot to forward them invoices. I felt as though they genuinely cared about our community and about each board member as an individual. I highly recommend their services.

I am remodeling bathroom which has a 3'x3'x1-1/2' soffit for plumbing. When I pulled out the drywall, I saw a lot of rat feces and called around to a few services.
Tacoma Accountants Provider Name Locked
seemed to provide the best all-around service for what I need plus had good ratings. The team of two people came on the schedule date, were very courteous and professional and went about their job after discussing the situation with them. They laid down material to keep the floor clean and then inspected the soffit. I was told that the feces was old and there was no activity so the only work needed was clean up and disinfecting, which they did thoroughly.

Left information out of return that was provided to preparer that caused a major additional tax
Tacoma Accountants Provider Name Locked
from the IRS. After notification from the IRS, I attempted to contact preparer three times, left messages twice but never got a return call. When she finally answered the phone she suggested that I would have to fix the error. Only after pushback did she offer to intercede. I fixed the error myself. I will not use next year.

.Was able to reduce appraisal on one of 2 properties by a small amount. Unimpressed when as first step of the process they forwarded us the wrong documents for a different county. I doubt that we would use them again as the entire procedure seemed very "slip shod"

gave me incorrect information about charitable donations. I gave the church a $25,000 charitable donation based upon

I had a great experience with
Tacoma Accountants Provider Name Locked
and his company. He is very responsive, professional and knowledgeable. I know very little about how the tax system works, so I really appreciated how

If you are like me and have a busy schedule with lots of travel, you will especially love how everything can be simply and effectively taken care of electronically, of course at your choice, with

and his company.
I certainly recommend

The auditors of
Tacoma Accountants Provider Name Locked
& Associates are absolutely relentless in perusing our financial documents, which makes me feel they are really going all out to get the job done. If we can meet all of their requirements, I know we are both being held to a very high standard of accountability and transparency!

I was not informed with whom I was interacting; rather, rc'd the
Tacoma Accountants Provider Name Locked
&
Tacoma Accountants Provider Name Locked
signature block at the conclusion of each email. My contact quoted me a price for research of the question I asked and maintained that price throughout our several emails; but, amended the hours to research the question from 2-3 hrs. to 10-20 hrs.
My respondent had difficulty understanding that I only needed one question answered and misunderstood that the plethora of information that I provided him was evidentiary clarification of that one question to assist him in focusing his research upon that one target. His emails, thereconcerned,
Tacoma Accountants Provider Name Locked
me to believe that he was unable to coordinate the information with the question, such that he thought there was more to it than meets the eye. I was informed that my respondent would require much more information about the issue prior to placing a value upon his service; however, I had already supplied him with all necessary info to apply law to answering my question - he, simply, was unable to integrate the information with the question. I advised him that if he needed more information, then the most efficacious manner to proceed was for him to ask questions. His response was to change the subject and enquire of me how much the answer to my question was worth to me. Consequently, I researched the issue myself and have the answer to the question.
If

&

were able to directly respond to my questions instead of equivocating and posturing for pecuniary advantage, I would probably use their services at least once, to determine their expertise in the field. The appearance is that

prefer to serve ignoramuses and have a bit of difficulty interacting with those who know something about the subject of which they are enquiring.
