“I have used XZ CPA for several years. Shelly and her staff are extremely thorough and detail-oriented, returns are triple checked. More than that, Shelly treated my tax return with the time and attention she would treat her own, sharing the decision making process and tax law along the way for anything that may have changed on my return. She researches new tax codes and laws and even hosts informational sessions to keep her clients abreast of all the changes.” – Henry D., Real estate investor, Yelp Review
“Highly recommend for any small business looking for Tax preparation, accounting and payroll. Shelly and her staff are very knowledgeable on all aspects of what is needed to set up a small business in all areas including types of corporations that best fits your needs. A very affordable solution to keep you business in compliance with State and Federal taxes. My small business has never run so smoothly since I turned over my accounting, payroll, sales tax and Federal/State Income tax preparations to XZ CPA PLC. Services rendered are a fraction of the cost compared to others that I interviewed and results are top notch.” – Rick P., business owner, Yelp review
