Over the past twenty years, my husband and I have made the trip to have you prepare our yearly taxes. In that time, we have been very satisfied with your work and the relationship we share from client to friend. We would like to take this opportunity to document our gratitude to you for the top quality service you have provided to us at a reasonable rate.

Geraldine, you have shown how much you understand our needs and the assistance you provide in terms of advice on and off tax season is invaluable. We particularly love your format for keeping us abreast of changes by your routine mailing during the year and I must mention your counsel in tax season to prepare us for the next tax reporting season. We also appreciate the way you take the time to look at our alternatives and explain them.

As our lives and needs change, we will continue to look forward to your support with our tax preparation and filing. We truly feel blessed to have you and your staff handle our tax needs and look forward to the same great relationship in the future. As you know, we do have choices for this service but we will continue to choose you.

Mrs. Geraldine Clahar’s connection to me started when she prepared my parents’ tax returns for years. She was always timely, consistent, and professional in her interaction with them, and they never had an audit or any other problems arise from their tax returns. Naturally, when I needed an accountant, she was the 1st one I turned to.  I have had the pleasure to utilize her expertise since 1997, and she has been an invaluable source, especially during multiple relocations to different U.S. states and having to deal with multiple state tax returns. Having such an extended relationship with Mrs. Geraldine Clahar, I can both readily and emphatically recommend her to anyone seeking professional accounting services.

I have been filing tax returns for almost 50 years. During that time I have experienced various tax preparers including several with adequate skills and one that was on the federal government’s blacklist for fraudulent return practices. Over 14 years ago, a bank executive referred me to Geraldine Clahar. As a private practitioner, I needed someone who could help me develop and maintain the records required to document my business expenses. I wanted someone who stayed on top of the current changes in policies and practices and could offer advice and resources for correctly meeting the IRS guidelines. Geraldine Clahar has these skills and more. I have found her to be an exceptionally ethical, competent and caring professional.

Geraldine Clahar has been preparing our tax returns since 1985. During that time, we have never been audited and our taxes have been completed in a timely and efficient manner.

Not only has she prepared our tax returns, but we have solicited her counsel concerning our choice of financial advisors and have found her input to be invaluable.

Based on our experience, we highly recommend Geraldine Clahar to anyone who requires assistance in financial matters.
