What our Clients are saying

Mr. Alderwish is amazing! I had very complicated taxes this year because of multiple states, personal and corporation filings – Mr. Alderwish went way beyond the extra mile in calling the state revenue departments in two states to verify my tax liability – as a result he was able to increase my tax refund from one of these states by over $3,000!! I highly recommend Mr. Alderwish to any and all – he is the best accountant with whom I have ever had the pleasure to work.
