I own a small business and Jennifer does a superb job of doing my taxes. She is very knowledgeable and responds promptly to any inquiry I have. Unlike my previous CPA, Jennifer will spend her time and effort to get things wright. She will explain everything and provides guidance for future based on your current income and situation. I highly recommend her and Checked & Balanced payroll services if you looking for a CPA to do your taxes. Couldn’t be more happier. Thank you again!!!!

Jenn is my tax guru. She has been my tax-inista for several years, through many jobs, several states, cross country moves, and big purchases.
