As a long term client of Joe Mastriano, P.C. and a business owner myself, I can tell you that this firm has always provided timely services and has helped me avoid an audit when my deductions may not have met all the rules. Those of you wanting experienced advice that will help you save money, do a consultation and see for yourself. I highly recommend this firm for all your tax needs. A little story. I owed over 1 million to the IRS for payroll tax. They helped me set up a new corporation and cut the liability in half. I had talked to other attorneys about what can be done. They wanted to file a bankruptcy. I then contacted some of the top Google search results that came up after I typed in "IRS problem help" "tax problem attorney". I found out that many are not even law firms or CPA firms. They are full of sales people who kept asking me for my credit card information promising me results without really understanding my situation. What I really liked about Joe was that he has a low priced in depth meeting where he explains how to deal with the IRS. How to really avoid an audit. He also know every rule to follow to avoid levies. When I called to IRS they were able to confirm that everything he told me was correct. Although, they were quick to try to say they would take care of me and that I didn't need to hire anyone. So, I was confident that I wanted to have Joe Mastriano, P.C. work my case, even though I know several competent attorneys that I've worked with before. If you have any tax issues you have to see this guy. I don't know anyone who spent over 30 years dealing with IRS matters like he has.

Earlier this year I was shocked to find out that my husband was in deep trouble with the IRS. We've been living separated for the last year but we were still legally married. He was the one who moved out of the house, so one day I get a notice from the IRS about them levying some of our properties, including the house where I was living in. You can imagine my shock, I had no idea we owed any taxes. I was so mad, but managed to clear my head enough to figure I'm never gonna get the whole truth out of George so I decided to follow my own best interest and protect myself from whatever he got himself into. I was also afraid I'm going to loose my home and everything I worked for to the IRS. I did a lot of research over the Internet and finally came upon Joe Matriano's website, and read his innocent spouse advice, which convinced me I needed to hire his professional services. It turns out my husband was in much bigger trouble than I imagined, but luckily most of that trouble he "earned" before we got married so Joe managed to save part of our commonly owned assets, including my home which was that only thing I really cared about. Needless to say that the next thing I did was to get a proper divorce as fast as possible, and I haven't been in contact with George ever since, I'm just happy I got to keep my home and that I can move on with my life. So I want to thank Joe and everyone in his firm for being so helpful and understanding with me, I sincerely recommend them to anyone going through any kind of tax or IRS problems.
I had not filed my taxes properly for a couple of years now, didn't care much for doing so nor did I ever have any concerns about the IRS knocking on my door. This summer I started receiving letters from the IRS, which I was foolish enough to ignore, till a few months ago when I got slapped with an IRS audit notice. Obviously I didn't have a clue as to what to do, went through a great deal of panic and I'd lie if I'd say I wasn't a bit scared, so I asked around and one of my friends recommended I called this CPA guy Joe Mastriano. I've never hired such services before in my life, and I had my doubts about paying, what seamed to me at that time, a pretty large fee, to have someone deal with the IRS for me. My friend talked me into it, and it was probably the best decision I ever made. It was a difficult time for me but with Joe's help I managed to get through the IRS audit and came out pretty well out of it too. Now I realize that were it not for Joe's help, the IRS would have probably ripped me apart for all the money that I had, and then some. Now I have a much better respect for filing taxes and especially for people that have to face the IRS on a daily basis, and I think Joe's fees reflect the value of his services and are a reasonable investment that can literally save your life's earnings. Thanks again Joe, and also thank your assistant for having so much patience with me, I know I'm a difficult person to work with.
“Hello everyone, I want to share my very positive experience that my husband and I have had with Joe Mastriano, PC. In 2012 we had owned a business in North Carolina that unfortunately failed. Our original tax attorney set our business up as a C-Corporation. We are still not sure why we were set up with that tax status. We had a very complicated tax situation especially trying to file a corporate return ourselves. I called Joe Mastriano, PC, they immediately took the time to set up a conference call with a team of Tax Attorneys to better understand our situation. Initially I was assigned an account Manager Sherry O who has been exceptional. She followed up with me weekly about any prior issues and knew how to put my tax fears at ease. Tax attorney Laurel was exceptional as well with her knowledge and research in finding answers to resolve our tax questions and to best meet our needs when completing our Corporate return. Joe Mastriano, PC has also helped with our 1040?s by amending them to reflect our loss from our Corporate return. Joe Mastriano, PC is also affordable and really came through when we were in a tax bind. I strongly recommend Joe Mastriano, PC, especially if your tax situation is complicated!. I'm looking forward to working with Joe and his team for our 2013 returns....Suzy B”
Me and my wife have been using Joe's firm for years now and we never ran into any problems. Joe runs a honest business, he and his firm's employees have always been helpful and well mannered towards us. His rates are more than fair for the amount of experience he brings to the table, we always felt we got our money's worth out of his services. Both me and my wife run our own businesses, and we are both providing services for our own customers more or less, through the nature of our work. We know from personal experience that every now and then there are clients that find reasons to complain and be dissatisfied no matter how much you try to make them happy. We recommend Joe's firm to everyone looking for tax help and IRS representation. We also recommend that you follow whatever advice Joe gives you and don't go around making choices thinking that you know better. It is not enough to hire a professional to help you out of your problems, if you are not cooperative and don't try to help yourself too.
“In the midst of negotiating with the IRS they decided to implement a levy and garnish my wages. I was left with $373 every two weeks which devastated my family financially. I called Joe Mastriano, PC and they were able to get the levy lifted within a week. The care and compassion exercised by the staff was unparalleled. They made a very stressful situation easier to deal with. They sent very simple tax organizers via email and I was able to become compliant with my late tax returns as well as reduce my sizable IRS debt. (80k to 26k). The 26k is my initial amount and now that the levy has been lifted we are on to the next step of evaluating what the true debt will be but in my book 26k is way more manageable than 80!. I am grateful to the Joe Mastriano, PC team and the way they have worked with me. You hear advertisement constantly on the radio and television about how companies can help you deal with the IRS but where the rubber meets the road, Joe Mastriano, PC actually delivers. Thanks guys!”
Me and my wife used Joe's services for the first time about 8 years ago when we got married. None of us really knew much about taxes and after we married we decided we were going to let a professional put together and file our joint return. Joe came with high recommendations from a common friend, actually it was my wife's brother, he had a small business at that time and handled all his tax issues through Joe. A few years back, me and the wife started our own business online, and again we turned to Joe's firm for assistance since many of his clients are small businesses just like ours. Joe has been an important part of our financial security for all these years and he helped us in more ways that I can imagine. We are all ok with our taxes, and in good standing with the IRS both as a family and with our business which has been picking up. If you are in need of a true tax professional to help you out in any matters of taxes or the IRS, give Joe a call and you won't be disappointed.
My first contact was with Stephanie who was very nice, professional, and didn't try to make up stuff just to get money from me. She explained why it was necessary to do a consultation. Since she wasn't the licensed professional, she wasn't going to act like she know how to handle my case. Steve Fuqua was the professional assigned to my account. He is confident, fast, smart and everything you would want in someone to help you with any tax or IRS problem. I needed to establish an installment agreement. I was scared to tell the IRS all about my inheritance, and value of my business. We spent a lot of time answering all of my questions. Then, we put together a set of financials for the IRS collection lady. I was very surprised to find out that we got an agreement for less than we anticipated. He then instructed me on what I needed to do so that I didn't break the agreement and cause a bank levy. Very professional, very helpful. This is the CPA firm you want.
Running a small business is hard enough, trying to find a reliable accountant to help you is even harder. When I started my landscaping design business 3 years ago, i went to see CPA to help me prepare my taxes. He was great and got my taxes done. But when I started to get notices from the sales tax office and the comptroller's office, I wend to see my CPA again. He said that I needed to find a bookkeeper to get my books in order. He recomended T-Account. I met with Chris from the bookkeeping firm. They sat down with me and really took the time to understand my business. They got my QuickBooks cleaned-up and ready for the CPA. What's great about T-Account is they meet with me once a month to go over my numbers and figure out strategies for my cash flow. They really empowered me to make the right decision for my company.
I had some problems with the IRS that I couldn't handle. I knew I needed someone I could rely on to help. After searching the internet for accountants with A+ BBB ratings, I found Joe. His office staff were courteous and caring. They set me up with Joe right away. I came back from the first meeting impressed with Joe's understanding of my problem and how to handle it. He eased my fears and gave me hope. Joe and his staff got me caught up with my back tax returns and into a payment plan that leaves me enough money each month to live on! I didn't think that would be possible! I can't thank them enough! If you have tax or IRS problems I would HIGHLY recommend Joe and his staff!! Thanks Joe!!!
