I used Running Valley Financial for my personal and small business tax preparation and it was an amazing experience. Not only was it simple to upload my documents but also went over my deductions and caught a few I had been missing the past couple years resulting in a better return for me. She was professional and super knowledgeable. I'd recommend her and will be filing my taxes through Running Valley next year.

I didn't have a good experience with my previous CPA and had to switch. Carrie is a CPA that DOES worry about clients and works with them to make sure their questions get answered. She really took the time with me to go over everything. Her great customer service and professionalism really makes a difference when working with a CPA.
