Tax Advice For Families and Small Businesses in the Long Island Area


Looking for Someone to Trust


I had been with my previous tax preparer for over 10 years. Even though he was very professional and courteous, over the years I started to feel that I was just another customer.  I sometimes needed a question answered or some advice for either my business or personal financial matters but I could never get in touch with him.

This year, as I searched for a replacement, I spoke with a few candidates but did not feel comfortable with anyone until I called Mike.  He seemed interested in what I had to say and even before I asked, he suggested we meet in person.  From the beginning I felt like he really wanted to help me and my family.

Even though his fees were more than I expected I still went with Mike because I felt him to be honest, upfront and above all reachable.  Since the end of tax season Mike has reached out at least twice and indicated that we should meet soon to plan and discuss all options available to my family and me.  I am very satisfied and appreciative that Mike completed my taxes on time even though I came to him just a week before the deadline.

Dear Friend,

I hope you’ll forgive me for being blunt.

I am Michael J. Kessler, I’m a Profitability Consultant & CPA and realize that you may not be used to seeing a tax professional talk like this. It’s not my intention to offend (I’m actually being very careful with my words–I am a tax professional, after all).

But I think you’ll agree that the times we’re currently facing require a little straight talk.

Here’s a certain truth: the State and Federal Government would love to have more of your hard-earned money in their accounts. Sure, even though it’s painful, none of us begrudge paying our legal and fair share of taxes. But the problem is that regular taxpayers, like you, are missing out on legal and safe deductions, to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars in unclaimed refunds every year!

As a tax professional, it truly breaks my heart, knowing that just a few thousand, or even a few hundred bucks for us “regular guys” out of that vast pool of overcharging could make a world of difference–and they are just sitting there, unclaimed! And with the economy we’re facing now…it’s essential that the “right” professional handles your taxes and other financial matters.

You see, all tax professionals are not the same. From the “discount” chains (notice the quotes) to classic accounting firms, most fly through tax season in a disorganized mess–bleary-eyed and hopped-up on caffeine. It’s no wonder that they treat you like a number and lapse into excuses and tax-talk. (I told you that I would be blunt.)

Feel free to poke around our site and discover why we’ve been called “Long Island’s Trusted CPA”

Talk again soon,

Michael J. Kessler, CPA
