Taxes - Nobody ever wants to think about them.  But when you need someone you can trust to file yours, where do you go in Western New York?

Remember when you first started working and you would do your own taxes?  You'd get out your 1040EZ form, enter your income and the other info on your W-2 and were done.

Then you grew up, started a family, bought a house, maybe started a business, and things got much more complicated.  Now there are dependants, tax credits, and a ton of other things to consider.  Then the laws change.  Every time we get a new president it's like learning what you should and shouldn't be withholding every single year.

And to add to the stress, if it's done wrong, it could cost you a lot of money.

Oh...and there's a deadline.

People work hard for their money and the last thing they want to do is just let it all go.  You want to do the right thing and pay your fair share, but you don't want to be leaving money on the table that could be yours either.

So who do you trust with all that?

We had a great tax preparer for years.  Sadly, this year we found out that he passed away so not only are we missing a great friend that we looked forward to seeing every year, but now we need to find someone else that we can trust with our taxes.

If you don't have someone that a friend recommends, it can be tough.  But just like anything else, word of mouth is very powerful in business.  We took to the internet to see what people were saying.  Here are some of the firms that we found that had some pretty great reviews online.
