"Howes was extremely Helpful!  I am setting up a business in California and did not know all the regulatory requirements.  I had a 45 minute consulting phone call with them and got all my questions answered.  Howes also is researching another issue for me and is going to get back to me.  I was most impressed with how quickly I was able to set up an appointment and how very knowledgeable they are.  They got right to the point and informed me of the important things I needed to know.  I can also call them anytime with questions."

"Mark and his team are seeing me through a rough patch.  After a successful real estate sale, I had some bad information from my previous accountant.  Mark, Joe, and Mason really have helped me - they have educated me and supported my next steps.  Mark goes above and beyond - I'm really glad to be a client."

Excellent, personable, pro-active service. Mark, Mason and company have been a dream to work with - down-to-earth, very attentive to detail and most importantly intent upon helping me evolve a mess of receipts, inconsistent habits and ignorance I call 'my accounting." The result for me directly translates to less worry, more time to focus upon what I do best and better knowledge of current financial health. Bravo! Five stars!

Very professional and thorough Enrolled Agents. I would like to express my deep satisfaction with the work that Mark and Mason did regarding my tax returns. My tax situation was very complicated, so I was very happy with the competent way it was prepared by them and also the simple/easy to understand, explanation about what was given to me. I would definitely recommend them as Tax professionals to anyone looking for help.

Mark has been getting our chaos of books under control with a clear vision of where we want to grow the company. He has made solid recommendations for other professionals, whom have made my business partners' and my life much easier. I look forward to working with him as our business grows and could not recommend him highly enough.

I was feeling overwhelmed by various tax and bookkeeping issues to the point that it was keeping me from doing what I needed to do. I threw everything into a bag and made an appointment with Mark. After just one hour, I felt like the weight of the world had been lifted off my shoulders. I really appreciate the way they take the time to explain things, in simple terms. Tax planning baffles me and I got a much better understanding of the long term planning process and feel very confident with our collaborative efforts. I knew I was in capable hands and exactly what the plan of attack was. I cannot recommend Mark and his team highly enough.

This is the first year I had my taxes completed by Howes Tax. Before, I dropped off paperwork, signed and my filing was sent. Not the same experience with Howes Tax. Mark not only prepared my tax documents but he showed me how to save money next year. There is an undeniable balance of listening, caring and advising. Taxes have always been a mystery to me and happy to leave it so. This is the first time I understood the overall picture. As an owner of a small business this was invaluable. He has also suggested ways to simplify my bookkeeping.  I know, going forward, that Howes Tax has my back. I feel so lucky to have connected with them!

Howes Tax has been working with me for years on filing taxes and financial planning. They are a great blend of professional digging deep for the right ways to manage tax preparation for where you are in your life to personal in that they get to know you as a person and aren't treating you like just another client.

Mark is cordial, friendly and very knowledgeable! Mark demystified my taxes in a matter of minutes. Finances are not my specialty so this whole process has been daunting. But he explained it all to me very succinctly. I would definitely work with him again!

-- Raymond A.,

I met with Mark for the first time yesterday about our business. By the end of the day - in the midst of tax season - he had filed an extension for us! It's a relief to know it's taken cared of and especially that quickly.

During my time working with him and his team, they've shown genuine interest in helping their clients.

Happy customer for over 6 years. Mark's team is attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. As a small business owner and investor, I have some unusual tax treatments and they make it look easy. They keep up to date with technology to make file transfer, document signing, etc. a breeze.

-- Mike Scully,

My meeting with Mark and his team was very productive. We set a course on making my accounts more simplified, therefore easier to use. The whole point of this meeting is to make the end of the year tax situation turn key and I think when we accomplish what we discussed that will be the case. I am very satisfied with Howes Tax. The people are friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. I always find a parking place and have nothing bad to say about them.

-- Van Obermuller,

I don't like numbers and it has always been a struggke to get my taxes done on time. Until now... Mark and the entire team at Howes Tax have helped me organize my balance sheets, streamline my bookkeeping, understand the process (at least a little bit) and they do it with a smile.

-- Scott Chernis,

September 9, 2014

I feel fortunate to have found Howes Tax. After two previous tax preparers made grievous errors on my taxes, I did careful research before choosing a new tax accountant. I needed someone who had current information on RDP filing. Also, in 2011, my Social Security number was stolen and used fraudulently to collect a refund. I was relieved to have Mark's assistance to guide me through dealing with the IRS and FTB. I am very satisfied.
