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.

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. 

Thorough, Attentive, and Efficient

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!

About Me

Most people would treat news of job relocation with anxiety. As a CPA with 14 years of experience, I took the news in stride.  I decided to leverage my skill set and vast experience and begin my own accounting  practice.  After years of working with complex business models, I knew my assistance would be extremely beneficial to individuals and small companies.

In 2008, within days of spreading the word about my growing business, I landed my first client by referral.  Since then, I have grown and deliver value-added services to numerous customers.  I assist business owners with bookkeeping, seniors and their families with personal money management, and both business owners and individuals with annual tax returns. 

Those who choose to work with me for tax and accounting needs receive a level of service that exceeds their expectations. I value the trust my clients have in me.

I'm originally from Closter and currently work and live in Hillsdale, NJ.
