Peter B Diaz CPA & Associates Customer Reviews

"Very professional tax services. Peter always gets my taxes prepared quickly and without error. This gives me real peace of mind knowing I have a tax man I can trust. The annual tax planning is the best investment with payback far exceeding the cost. I highly recommend Peter to all my friends and business associates."

—John W.

"I am usually very nervous to get my taxes done, but Peter made the whole process simple and stress free. He also took the time to explain how and why things were done, so that I could make better decisions about my taxes for next year. Peter provides professional work and a stress free environment. I would recommend Peter Diaz for your tax consulting."

— Adam H.

"It is great dealing with Peter to do the income tax for my business. Most all of it can be done electronically and I never have to go to his office. This works well for me and my busy schedule. Many times he may be closed for the day and I can shoot him an email or fax, for him to review the next day. He is a true professional who helps make sure my business is successful."

— Michelle D.

"When I just had a single W2 to deal with I could handle my own taxes. Now with a full time income from a "normal" job, income from my side business, the new crackdown on internet income tax, a wife, and deductions from school loans I was in over my head. Mr. Diaz was a lifesaver. My neighbor reccomended him and I'm glad he did. The stress of tax returns has been lifted, and I no longer worry if an audit is just around the corner. I was even able to complete my return with a busy schedule since they used email and fax communication to speed up the process."

— Sean C.

"As a small business owner, it is great to work with people who have systems in place to save you time. I never have to go to there office, it is all done electronically. The service I get is wonderful and they have even saved me some money on taxes over what I had paid in the past."

— Michelle

"I met with Mr. Diaz yesterday for a consultation. I was going to prepare my own taxes and had a few questions I needed resolved. After Peter informed me of around $8000 in tax deductions I was not aware of and would have missed, I just turned everything over to Peter to prepare my taxes."

—Denny

Peter organized all my tax information quickly and efficiently. The questions he asked told me he knew his stuff, and the IRS refund proved it.

Thanks Peter!"

My experience with him has been outstanding thus far. He is a topnotch professional from start to finish. I truly trust him, and highly recommend his services to both corporations and individuals.

I will without a doubt continue doing business with him in the future. He is always there for me; it is never too late in the day to give him a call and he always returns my call the same day. His services are fairly priced."

"I was referred to Peter recently by a business associate who said Peter could save me money with some tax planning. I met with Peter who did a tax projection for me and presented several alternatives I was not aware of. I had prepared my own taxes on Turbo Tax for years. I followed Peter's recommendations and reduced my 2007 tax liability by several thousands of dollars. Thanks Peter. I've decided to give up on Turbo Tax and just turn everything over to Peter from now on."

—William
