“I’ve run my own business in NY for years and got killed in taxes even with a Manhattan CPA. The TaxMaster™ team in less than a month cut my Federal, State and city income taxes by more than half using a basic mainstream technique my CPA never heard about. I guess it takes a master, thank you TaxMaster™!”

-John M, Yonkers NY

“Last year our firm…saved …26% of the initial real estate tax bill! - I only wish I’d have done this years before.”                                                             

-Mark B. – Sarasota, Florida

“I've never been so excited to get my taxes done! And I didn't have to follow-up to see how things were going… As a small business owner, I am 100% satisfied and highly recommend…                                                                                                

- Krista, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 

"… They cut costs and expanded benefits and service… made a big difference in our accounting and tax management at lower cost. They definitely went the extra mile, and we really like their proactive approach in looking out for our interests…”       

- Robert A, CEO, Florida


“…over the years, a number of the younger physicians have asked how I approach planning…I have been amazed at the variation of ways that everybody is trying to accomplish their goals.  When I asked about asset protection, wealth management, trusts, wills, I personally found I was not doing it most effectively. I have been leaving money on the table for Uncle Sam…the first week of meeting the planners a deferred pension plan was established that will personally save me  30 to 40 thousand dollars for the 2019 tax year.
I have been an (old CPA firm) client for decades and they had never even suggested the creation of such an entity…I have likely paid an extra 200 to 300 thousand dollars in taxes…that could have been sitting in a pension plan.
Asset protection for physicians is also an important topic… A trust to protect that wealth for current or future family members carefully executed adds to that safe future.
Jeff Camarda holds a PHD in financial and retirement planning... found his thoughts helpful for myself and my wife P. I asked if he would be willing to talk with others about the basics of planning mentioned in the previous paragraphs. Again, I emphasize that I have no interest and receive no benefit from writing this or providing their name. I felt they provided valuable advice for my family.”                                                                                                                              

- Dr. C.H, Florida

“…your presentation (for the CPA continuing education you designed and taught to our firm) very good.  I can definitely see that you have a lot of great knowledge to provide to clients…”                                                                                                             

- Kevin A, CPA, Jacksonville

 “You really work the magic, don’t you? …”                                                                                                                                                                   

- Chris C. – Lake County, Florida

“…Estate Planning Services… Our experience was pleasurable, efficient and educational. This was not our first will/trust and probably not the last. As we all know estate planning is ongoing with updates and revisions to keep pace with the ever changing laws, rules and regulations.

“For the last two years I have used the tax service provided by your firm. I plan to continue using this service in the years ahead.  The preparation of my income tax has been as “hassle-free” as income tax preparation can be. The staff, as always, was courteous and helpful. My taxes were completed in a timely and professional manner. In my opinion, one of the best features is convenience. Thank you for providing this service.”
