Referrals are Welcome
Referrals are the cornerstone of any service business. This firm, like other professional service firms, relies on satisfied clients as the primary source of new business. Your referrals are most sincerely appreciated!
Please know that we may not be able to accept referrals during certain times so that we can ensure we have ample time to provide our existing clients with the time and attention they deserve.
You can be assured that your personal, financial and tax data will not be shared with anyone that you refer to us.
An Expression of Confidence
When you refer clients here, you are expressing your faith and confidence in the services this office has and will continue to provide to you. You may have business associates who need professional tax assistance or family and friends who struggle to do their own taxes every year. No matter whom you refer, be assured that their individual tax needs will be looked after in the same professional manner you have been.
We take privacy seriously. In addition the IRS and AICPA have very strict rules relating the the release of confidential information. Please know that there are two types of releases - one for tax information and one for accounting information; you can view and print those here. If you should need our firm to disclose information to a third party we will need your signed consent on at least one of these forms.
