Overall great experience. As someone with multiple income streams who is accustomed to filing online I found their services easy and affordable. I also got to check out the best Beatles collection I've ever seen.

Overall, it went well. I had a curveball with my previous accountant who became very sick and was not able to do my return this year. So I had a couple of other options but turned to Angie's List to see what I could find on the site. I found Rosedale & Drapala which was rated well and it was close to where I lived. I called up and the receptionist put me through to Michael. He said he was stressed...

As a small business owner, I am very cautious of who to pick when it comes to finances and accounting. And I am not someone who knows much about taxes and finds them so strange, taxes are like picture yourself in a boat on a river with tangerine trees and marmalade skies, nothing makes sense with them. Michael Rosedale is someone that I am happy to have found. Upon entering the office, you are gre...

Excellent service and personable. Received a warm welcome from Mr. Rosedale. He did his best with trying to assist my husband and I with receiving a decent tax refund. Mr. Rosedale is honest and willing to give tax advice throughout the year. I would high recommend his services.

My accountant passed away so I needed an accountant to do our income taxes asap. I found Mr. Michael Rosedale through Angie's list. I decided to give him a try because of the large amounts of positive reviews. My wife and I made an appointment to see and meet with him in person first. You see, being that we were with our previous accountant for over ten years we were being very cautious. After all...

They were very helpful. They were very friendly, they seemed knowledgeable, they worked on my taxes, and they did a straight forward job. My taxes are fairly simple. I needed some help with a certified financial planner which is outside their scope and they provided a name of a planner that they worked with and had success with, so they were helpful in directing me on where to go when it was somet...

My wife and I met with Mike a few weeks ago. We were looking for an accountant who could do more than just file our tax return. In retirement, paying taxes and tax strategies can become more complicated than ever before. We wanted someone we could bounce ideas off, regarding things like RMDs  and Roth IRA conversions. I'm positive we found the right person. Mike was very knowledgeable about all as...

Due to a unique tax circumstance I might be facing next year I was looking for some insight on how to proceed.  Michael gave me his number and when I got in touch with him he asked several questions to drill down the issue and determine what options I have next year.  After reaching out to him he responded quickly and offered advice confidently -  I really appreciated that he took the time to disc...

Did not return 4 phone calls placed over the course of 2 weeks leading up to tax filing deadline. Wound up having to find new cpa at the last minute and file late. Very unprofessional to not return phone calls.

I try my best to provide a professional and personalized service to everyone I meet with. I believe all my other reviews support this fact. You indicated you called my office on various occasions and I am sincerely sorry I never got a chance to speak with you and meet you. I was not even aware that you called my office until I read this review. It appears you reached out to me during the final wee...
