Here’s what some of our clients say about working with Stauss Tax Services.
As I got older, my taxes got increasingly complex and I began dreading tax season each year. But not anymore! Having Stauss Tax Services prepare my returns has removed a tremendous burden. I feel confident that every allowable deduction is being taken. I still feel that I am completely on top of my taxes, but without the worry and bother of dealing with complex issues myself. No more nightmares!
~ Marlene Bottenfield
The team at Stauss Tax Services always go beyond our satisfaction and expectations. As we are based outside the US, we rely on this team to assist us with much more than corporate tax returns. Steve provides a very personalized service and we are extremely glad that we found him and his company.
~ Deborah Warboys, owner of International Agricultural Research
We share the same core values about sharing the planet with all living beings, which is a first in my experience with accountants! Steve is personal, caring and has a great sense of humor. He gives us the most thorough and reliable advice that we have ever received. He sees the “big picture” for us and helps us in better financial planning. After talking to Steve we feel relaxed and refreshed!
~ Kathleen Ford and Frank Martinez
Steve has been doing our personal and business S-Corp filings for several years. When I first met with Steve, I appreciated him taking the time to find out if we were a good match. He wanted to make sure our mutual priorities were aligned for a good working relationship. He is open to sharing information and has even showed me how to do some things myself, it’s not all about his billable time. And with his in-house bookkeeper, Wendy, if I have questions, she can answer them. This streamlined the process and I know the data I am giving him is the way he wants it. Steve embraces new technology, and this is especially helpful because I often work remotely. Stauss Tax Services has always been responsive with phone calls or emails. Most of all, working with Steve leaves us with peace of mind, because of his knowledge and humanity.
~ Lakshmi Khalsa, owner of BlueLink IT Solutions
Steve Stauss and his team at Stauss Tax Services have taken the stress off my shoulders with their professionalism and guidance on my bookkeeping and tax needs. It’s allowed me to concentrate on what makes my business so successful – the quality of my store and the needs of my customers.
~ Lisa Boegl, owner of Eldorado Country Pet
Let’s be candid, taxes suck. But Steve Stauss helps you relax with his witty banter and very human style. Steve obviously gets a kick out of doing taxes, and he provides as pleasant a tax preparation experience as humanly possible. We even have fun talking about complicated tax issues. Steve is an interesting, well-rounded guy with interests beyond taxes. That makes the process all the more fun. And that’s why we recommend him for business and personal tax planning and preparation.
~ Lynne Canning and Danielle Gothie
Canning Law & Justice, LLC
When we were looking for a new accountant and tax planning professional, we were attracted to Steve for the values he espouses and lives up to – he is genuinely concerned with people beyond their financial situation. We also appreciate that his world view is quite broad and that he speaks fluent Spanish, a key consideration in our community. And not only is he excellent at the bookkeeping and tax planning aspects of his business, he offers a personal touch. No one likes to pay taxes, but if you’re going to face that reality, dealing with Steve takes the edge off. He understands the complex issues of a small, independent business person beyond simply filing taxes, too, because he is one himself.
~ Patricia and Andrew Veech
Stauss Tax Services is truly a team effort. Without the indispensable contributions Paula and Wendy bring, we wouldn’t be able to care for our clients as we do. They make it happen for you!
