“The knowledge and effort put in by Richard and the staff was incredible.

They assisted in filing the taxes for us as a 501c3 and were very quick to respond and/or call me back. They answered all my questions about the process and taught me about what had to be done while filing our taxes.

Thank you, Richard and crew.”
