What our Client Say

I worked with Sean who was extremely helpful and thorough in answering all of my questions and going through the details of my tax return. I did leave feeling very satisfied that nothing was missed. Everything was taken care of promptly and they have very reasonable rates!
Robert Cuff
Sean was very fast and did my complicated returns for the IRS and the State in one day. I got a big return. No more messing around with getting forms and booklets from the IRS and The State! They never answer their phones.
Michael Braun
Before coming here I was going to another tax guy in Elk Grove and I guess because I was young he thought he could charge me almost $300 to get my taxes done. I was recommended to Sean Syed by my friend and I am so very glad that I came here! He’s beyond helpful and understanding. I would definitely recommend Sean and his colleagues to anyone in the Elk Grove.
WOW! i’m still stunned from what i’m getting as a refund.

I went to Shahab and he helped me get the maximum refund possible. He went through all the expenses, Expenses i had no idea i can claim.

He really worked hard for me and was extremely patient and friendly. the minute i got my W-2 i went straight to him and he explained everything.

I would recommend him to all my friends and family members and definitely coming back next year!
