"Integrated Tax Services was the greatest choice for tax preparation I could find. Kiak is extremely knowledgeable with all facets of finance - the tax preparation I needed as well as helping with growing my financial assets properly and wisely. Not only did I receive a larger refund than in previous years, but I was given a complete breakdown as to why and how I was able to receive such a refund - they don't make you feel inferior if you're not sure about what's going on. --Manuel Z.
"Last year, our taxes were a mess. We had my fiancee's taxes, plus mine, PLUS a random LLC that I decided to open in 2014 not knowing how it'll affect my taxes. What I like about Kiak and his team is that they're EXTREMELY thorough. He's straight to the point, will tell you like it is, what EXACTLY you're looking at, and help you figure it out. He explained why I shouldn't have opened that LLC and how it would affect my tax situation...We took his tax advice, closed my LLC, and saw him again [the following year]...We got a great return on this year's taxes filing..." --Tony A.
