Expertise and Knowledge Exceeded My Expectations

Posted by Lisa Semenick on 10/11/2011

Ms. Farag makes preparing yearly tax returns less stressful and more pleasant. She is patient and clear in her explanations, and she helps organize and ensure that you have all of the proper documents for filing. She takes her time with you and is very personable, which always makes a stressful activity more pleasant. Her expertise and knowledge exceeded my expectations. I use Ms. Farag throughout the year for money management and organizing the household, as well as my tax return. And if you have a question, she will find the answer and talk to you about your situation. I highly recommend and will continue to use her services.  

Great Tax Service!

Thorough, timely, accurate, and well versed in recent tax changes. The fee was very fair. Karen is a pleasure to work with. I will be using her as my accountant again.

Karen Farag provides concise, clear, and detailed accounting and financial advice for the small business owner. As a newly re-located sole proprietor in New York state, I relied on Ms. Farag to help me navigate financial paperwork, tax queries and documentation, state registration procedures, and foreign currency transfers. She did all of this with both speed and thoroughness. Highly recommended!

What is a CPA?

A CPA is a Certified Public Accountant. While a CPA is always an accountant, not all accountants are CPAs. To become a CPA, an accountant must take and pass a series of exams administered by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. Every three years CPAs are required to take 120 hours of additional training in order to remain licensed. Like lawyers, CPAs are bound by a code of ethics, and they must provide sound ethical advice to their clients at all times.
