Compliments from our Clients:

Thank you for keeping me organized, especially when I’m not. Your responsiveness in both personal and business tax preparation and your ability to send me files quickly lets me enjoy the new home I have today. Can’t wait to work with you in the new year. Thank you for everything.

I hope all is well with you. I just wanted to email to let you know I have now received all of my tax return checks for 20XX and 20XX amended returns and 20XX normal return.

I would like to thank you for all your help with this and say that I really appreciated your professionalism in dealing with all the issues that arose. Dealing with the US tax system was very daunting and confusing for me but I felt confident putting my trust in you.


Jonathan MEDOWS devised a strategy to work out an Offer in Compromise with the IRS . The tax period covered multiple years, and through many twists and turns, Mr. MEDOWS stayed the course and came away with a workable outcome. I strongly recommend working with Mr. MEDOWS, both on more complex issues like OICs and on an ongong basis. In both instances, Mr. MEDOWS, is affordable, very pleasant to work with, efficient, and he gets the right results.


I'm looking forward to working with you this year! You are a fantastic accountant and I can't say enough great things about you!

Leslie S.

I used Jonathan MEDOWS and thought he was good at figuring out deductions and estimating numbers on the spot. As well as giving good tips on how to save etc.

Jack D.

I liked him. You meet with him, and he is good about gauging how aggressive you want to be with deductions and stuff. He charged like $300+ with a freelancers union discount of like 10%. So far I've only been with him for 1 tax year, but he saved me way more money than when I calculated my tax liability on my own.

I would definitely suggest him.

Jane D.

Jonathan is a rare find in the accounting world. He is a genuine listener to his client's hopes and dreams; and, he has a keen eye for opportunity to make a business grow. His services are excellent.
