Testimonials

My entity is 2 years old right now.. in the beginning I felt it wasn't of any benefit to have Green, Neushwander & Manning, LLC do your taxes.. now I feel very different the money that you spend so your taxes can be filed correctly is worth it! I have Green, Neuschwander & Manning, LLC do my individual tax return as well as my entity tax return.. I would recommend any professional trader to Green, Neushwander & Manning, LLC.
