Mr Wagner may let his personal bias opinions keep you from getting your full refund, as I experienced. I was scammed by a woman who made me believe we would share our lives together. I went to Mr Wagner to ask if I was entitled to a refund from this incident. He laughed at me and said no. I later consulted an lawyer, who then told me that I was. He also told me that I should fire my tax preparer. I later confronted Mr. Wagner. He immediately gave me the refund. We discussed my hurtful experience on what this woman did to me. He took HER side, all because she had kids. Mr Wagner defended a person who had been scamming people for a long time that uses her kids as a way to gain peoples trust, only to deceive, and take advantage of them. He acted so unprofessional by even saying "I'll laugh at you when you're not around" I no longer went to him after that.
Pet friendly, professional yet witty, sincere and just flat out fun! Great accounting firm who truly cares about their clients and will take care of you!
I had my taxes completed by Howard Slutzsky. I was referred to his services based on a positive review; however, I had the opposite of a positive experience. It was the most stressful, difficult, and rude experience I have ever had. I made an appointment for my taxes to be completed with ample time. Howard was pleasant, but I should have noted his disorganized office. After a few weeks, I called to check on the progress of my taxes. I was assured that they would be completed within the following week. I called the following week (the week before April 15), and was told that Howard had received many late referrals and therefore did not have mine completed. I wish I would have asked why he was completing returns that came in after mine, before mine was completed. The week of April 15th, I left a couple messages asking on the timeline for when my taxes would be completed. I never received a phone call. I called on Saturday (4/13/2013) hoping to get my taxes over the weekend, since I am employed and cannot run to his office at the drop of a hat. No return call. On Monday, April 15 I called and stated that my taxes must be done by 3:00pm. I had to cancel my afternoon meetings, and take the afternoon off from work. I ended up getting called into a meeting, and was running late. At 4:00pm, Howard's office called and told me to pick them up (gee, thanks). When I arrived, I did not receive any explanation or apology. As I was signing my paperwork, I noticed that my taxes had been completed days prior! They never called! Additionally, Howard never let me know that mine would be completed on April 15th to plan ahead. I needed to derive that information myself, and worry. I left his office in a rush, to get my taxes completed and to the post office. I had a question as I was signing multiple city taxes. After missing work, battling traffic, rushing to get them done and postmarked, the receptionist stated that she couldn't help me unless I drove back. At 5:00pm. On APRIL 15th! After paying too much for them to be done, having them at the last minute, rushing through traffic, changing my plans, and taking a personal day, I received ZERO help. I had the joy of guessing what to do. Keep your money. Go to someone organized, knowledgable, and not an arrogant procrastinator with receptionists that know less than I do about taxes (which is very little) What. A. Waste. My boyfriend was boarding a plane in mere hours, which was explained to them; however, it made no difference. We had the enjoyment of worrying, rushing, and changing our schedules to accommodate Howard. Shouldn't a business be under the opposite practice? If you love to have zero help, pay a ton, rush, worry, and be ignored, you've found your ideal CPA. You must also have to have unlimited time to be on beacon call. Howard clearly only works under those assumptions. I will NEVER go back. I hope someone else doesn't make the same (very stressful) mistake I did.
For years I would prepare my own taxes or would go to a random tax vendor to have my taxes completed. Then a good friend of mine recommended Roger Wagner. Since the recommendation I have not considered another option. A) Roger’s thorough and up-to-date knowledge has consistently gotten me more $ from my return then any year previous B) He has caught mistakes that could have otherwise caused serious problems C) When complications he managed what needed to be done factually and with patience. D) He is quick, honest and great to work with. E) Lastly, its 100% reassuring to have something so hectic in the hands of true professional verses going to someone who was trained in a two-week quick course.Going to Roger was one of the best recommendations I have received. Knowing yearly that I will be handing my taxes to him gives me peace with a procedure that has otherwise been stressful. Writing reviews are not a commonality for me but coming across something so good would seem a disservice not to share.
