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.

“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”
“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!”
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.
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!!!
I had been contacted by the IRS and had 3 years I had to prepare returns. I had always done my return using a software I bought at computer store. Ed Gardner sat down with me, made me feel at ease, and helped me prepare the returns. He did them right away and I didn't have to wait a long time. Another firm said it would take 3-4 weeks. He sat down and asked me a lot of quetions. I wasn't aware of some of the deductions I was eligible for. He made a very stressful sitaution easy for me. I will be coming back in the future. He is very professional and has a lot of experience preparing returns. He was reasonable and I recommend his CPA firm. Thanks Ed, your the best.
I had gone to another taxpreparer for years. My best friend had used Edward M Gardner PC and talked me into trying the firm. They had me bring the prior three years tax returns. There were several deductions that I was eligible for that were not taken by the other taxpreparer. I worked with Ed Gardner. He truly cares about his clients and asks you a lot of questions to make sure that you get all your deductions. I would recommend Ed to anyone that is looking for a good CPA. He also is a financial planner and has put me on the right track with my finances. I only wish I would have met him years ago.
I have hired accountants in the past and I have to say that Joe Mastriano's company did a very good job helping me with my IRS problem. Stephanie was the first person I talked to and she was very informative and pleasant. She set up an appointment for me to talk to Joe. Joe's knowledge and experience was very impressive and I felt very comfortable having them work for me. They contacted the IRS for me and worked out a resolution to my problem, just like they said they would. I would recommend that you talk to them if you have any IRS trouble.
I will never look at the IRS the same again. I now know how the IRS handles my taxes. How they compare it and what I have to put on the return to keep them away. Because of them, I will never have to worry about an audit. I can deduct my actual expense like my office in home and all of my going out with my referral customers. I really strongly recommend that if you spend money on your business, then go to Joe Mastriano, and he will see to it that you really never have to worry about the IRS again. Just like he says on the site.
I just started a small auto repair business seven months ago and was doing my own bookkeeping. I soon realize bookkeeping was not for me. I called around town and interviewed a couple of accountants. This company was the most responsive and knowledgeable. They sent their bookkeeper to my shop and helped me with my books and taxes. Im very satisfied with their service so far. I recommend them to small business owners just starting. They are a big help and easy to work with.
