What People Say About Us

Kathy is the sweetest most caring accountant I have ever met. She not only is sweet and caring, but knows her stuff and is extremely knowledgeable.  She is a great teacher and she makes sure you understand everything that is going on at all times as well as maintains communications with her clients. As a business owner she makes my life easier.

Jay Grosman
CEO and Founder, iAutoAgent.com

Kathy has been our accountant for three years now and we couldn't be happier with her services.  Kathy is very much about educating and empowering us to do the things we can do ourselves, such as payroll, yet she is extremely knowledgeable and experienced to handle the things that are better left to a professional.  I give her my top recommendation.

We have known Kathy for many years from our church.  When I started my own business ten years ago, she started preparing my corporate returns and our own personal taxes as well.  She has done an amazing job for us, and I have recommended her to many others as well.  No more Turbo-tax for us!

Kathy helped us out of a difficult situation from a previous tax year.  It was a relief to come to her and finally get someone who was willing to help us.  For our current year tax preparation, she was extremely organized, very quick, and kept us updated throughout the process giving us a bulleted list of documents she needed from us.  She is the most amazing, supportive, and wonderful person I have ever met, and we are so blessed to have found her.  We were pleasantly surprised to receive a higher return than we were expecting!  She knows her stuff and we will certainly be using her from now on!

Kathy Smith has been invaluable to us from the very start of my husband’s consulting business. I had no background in bookkeeping, payroll, invoicing, or many of the other tasks that he needed. She helped set up and train me on the appropriate accounting software, and helped us navigate the federal and state tax requirements. Her broad experience and understanding have been integral to our long range planning and growth. She is always available to answer questions and is a delight to work with.
