Guardian Accounting Group, LLC Testimonials
"Steve is by far the most efficient and customer service oriented tax advisor we have worked with....EVER! Thanks for providing top notch advice and service." Julius and Sharon Washington, Tampa, FL
"Steve Ribble has been a great resource to me in setting up my own trading LLC. I first learned of Steve through a webinar he co-sponsored with a trading service I use. His presentation was informative, accurate, and easy to understand. Upon contacting him, we had several discussions on what the right structure for my LLC would be and he guided me through the process and paperwork. I continue to use Steve for his accounting and tax services and plan to be a customer for life! He is available for questions any time and although I've never met him in person, I have had no difficulty with him meeting filing deadlines or handling my financial needs. I highly recommend his services!" -D. Kong, New York
"Steve prepared 3 different returns with a variety of twists and turns involved. He handled all facets of the returns and all my questions and concerns efficiently and effectively. The fees charged were less than I have paid in the past and his communication was way better than I have experienced. Same day (sometimes same hour) response to emails and voicemails.
The secure file upload and tax organizer were very helpful in getting the returns done. Customizing the tax organizer is about all I could see as services that could be improved. I did not know Steve before this years return and am very happy to have found him. I will be coming back and will recommend him as well." -B.H., Minnesota
"New client and I'm extremely pleased with Steve and the service he provides. Great communication, attention to detail and timely processing of my accounting needs. Highly recommended" -John G., Tampa, FL
"very helpful and quick to prepare our taxes, at a competitive price, would recommend and will be using again" -Larry M, Tampa, FL
"As a trader it is very important to have someone that is familiar with the tax code for traders so I was relieved to find Shrink My Taxes. Steve was very pleasant to work with, completed my return quickly and accurately and at a competitive price. I would highly recommend him to anyone, especially traders."
"Steve has done our taxes for several years and has always gotten us the best return. He has also made it easy for us to compile all our documents. We have found him to be very easy to contact and replies to email promptly. He is very professional and knowledgeable of all new IRS matters. The fees he charges are much fairer than H&R Block or Liberty. I have use them in the past and found them to be way over priced at prepairing taxes."-Carol E., Brandon, FL
"I learned about Steve Ribble in a webinar I attended through Hamzei Analytics trading room. In listening to Steve in this webinar it became clear to me that he not only understood the tax code as it applied to self directed traders, but also knew how to use that knowledge to minimize one's tax obligation. I contacted Steve that same day and he was very responsive to questions I had even though he was not preparing my tax return at that time. Once I informed Steve that I wanted to use his service, he was very thorough and efficient and made sure my return was prepared in a way that would minimize my tax burden. I would highly recommend Steve to any self directed trader as he has the knowledge to not only prepare a tax return, but also provide insight on how best to set up a trading business" -Shawn Bailey, California
"Thank you for the many hours you spent working with us on our income taxes this year. As business owners, real estate investors, and active traders in futures, stocks, and currencies, it was critical that we worked with an accountant that not only understood business taxes but also had knowledge of all the IRS requirements for active traders. Your first-hand experience in the area of active trading allowed you to make recommendations that resulted in substantial tax savings to us. Your quick turn-around and immediate response to all our phone and email questions was outstanding. Without hesitation we would highly recommend your tax service to anyone, especially if they are a business owner and/or active trader" -Bill and Lana Elliott, Jacksonville, FL
"Until this year I did my own taxes, but I turned the chore over to Steve Ribble and Shrink My Taxes this year so I could benefit from Steve's knowledge and advice about starting a trading business. Apprehensively I might add! My apprehension was short-lived, however, because right away I knew I had made a good decision. Steve is very friendly and easy to talk to, and even though we were separated by hundreds of miles, I never felt the distance was an issue. I was practically unaware of the distance in fact. Steve communicates thoroughly and promptly, in writing and on the phone, and he's a great resource for information about taxes and starting a business. His website and newsletter are excellent resources too. Steve is very detail-oriented, especially when it comes to providing great customer service and making sure all questions are answered. This year my taxes were filed faster than ever, and I had my refund while my friends were still gathering documents. I am pleased to recommend Steve and Shrink My Taxes!" -Ayn Clayborne, North Carolina
"Working with Steve and Shrink My Taxes has been a refreshing breeze! Steve brings professional insight and advanced understanding to complex tax issues and consistently offers suggestions and recommendations to maximize my business and personal tax returns. He goes out of his way to make sure I take advantage of every deduction, credit, and loop-hole that I am legally entitled to so I don't pay more in taxes than I should. My taxes are always completed on time and error free and every question is always answered in a way that is easy to understand. If you own your own business like I do, it's great to have a tax expert in your corner. I don't worry about tax time anymore because Steve and Shrink My Taxes have my back!" -E.H., Bolingbrook, IL
"Being a relatively new active trader I have really been concerned with how trading activities would play out with my tax exposure. I have a conventional business in New York but trading is quite different when it comes to the tax code. After hearing Steve Ribble do a webinar for Shrink My Taxes, he explained the benefits to all the different entities and how I needed to set up my business to really take advantage of the tax code. I knew he was well versed in both the trader tax code and, being an active trader himself, he really understood my needs. I was very comfortable with his knowledge and his attention to detail, along with his pleasing personality. I am very happy with our relationship and look forward to many prosperous years dealing with Shrink My Taxes." -Bruce Corey, LBR Equities LLC
