We hope you have enjoyed this series of periodic events over the years. As our firm has just completed its 80th tax season, we reflect on our past with an eye towards the future. We continually look for ways to continue to provide exceptional service to our clients. The next 80 years will undoubtedly be different than the last 80, but as, always, we remain Committed to your Success!
