Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it.

Here’s what our clients have to say:

"

“I own a small forestry and tree care company in Gray and have been working with Taxing Situations for about ten years. Shannon handles the tax returns for both our personal and business sides. I used to complete my own tax returns, but now with business equipment depreciation, stocks, my wife’s employer stock purchase program and stock options, it just became too complex to try to keep up with all the details. The thing I like most about working with Shannon is that he is willing to really dig in and come up with good, practical ideas and options that can actually save us money. He understands that while we all have the obligation to pay the taxes we legally must pay, we also have the right and obligation to minimize those tax payments to the extent that the IRS code allows. For example, Shannon has instructed us to utilize traditional IRAs in years when reducing our taxable income would prevent us being bumped up into the next higher marginal rate; the ROTH IRAs we had would not work for this. Why pay the extra money to Uncle Sam when we can put it toward our retirement funds? If you are going to hire someone to prepare and file your tax returns, you might as well hire someone who will work hard to put some money back in your pocket.”

“We have been using Taxing Situations for close to 15 years. We own a window cleaning business with many employees and would not be able to do our taxes on our own as it can get very complicated. Taxing Situations are very easy to work with and very knowledgeable about all the current tax laws. Very quick to answer any questions you may have as well. We have been very happy with both Donald and Shannon over the years. We highly recommend them.”

“I was referred to Shannon by a friend. I had been using an out-of-state firm from where I used to live. They did a good job but were huge and I needed a change with a local firm. Shannon is not just about preparing taxes, he is a full service tax advisor and planner. He showed me what I was doing wrong with 401K and individual investments handled by others, convinced me to make changes with investment strategies and informed me how I could take advantage of tax codes and save more. I would recommend Shannon to anyone.”
