Dear Bob, Thanks for the good news about my Tax refunds.

First I will say that I am completely satisfied with Deborah's (King) work and your help, culminating in the production of my 2013 personal tax return. Deborah is a caring person doing her work thoroughly with high professional standards, and always answering my questions promptly and efficiently.

From our very first encounter at your seminar in February, I appreciated your expertise as well as your understanding of my need to keep my costs down. As an accountant myself, I have strived to do as much of the information gathering legwork as possible, and also entering and reconciling the Tradelog information promptly and accurately....Thanks and best regards,
