Mr. Fortenberry does my personal income taxes and charges me $175. It's a little pricey, I think, but I assume they are some of the best in Columbus. The staff is rude and condescending, as is Mr. Fortenberry, so I don't recommend actually talking to them if you can help it. I always get my packet in January, and it seems they get mine filed within a month after submitting my finished returns. I don't know how to compare this (fast/slow); again, I assume they have a large client list. All in all, not bad unless you have to speak with someone on the phone.
I needed accounting services from professionals that would become involved in my personal and business needs. They have earned my respect and trust by being available, by being involved with my planning and periodic evaluation of my business operations.
They did a great job last year for my business and I will continue to use them moving forward. Very easy, fast, and friendly people. I definitely recommend using Melinda.
