    • I recommend Ellyn Tanenberg.

    My husband and I spent years trying to resolve a tax problem. We literally felt hopeless and did not know where else to turn. Upon conferring with our daughter, Attorney Ellyn Tanenberg was recommended. Ellyn was very competent and thorough as she prepared to represent us. Throughout the tedious process of document collection, phone calls and additional "roadblocks", we finally received an acceptable installment agreement, thanks to Ellyn! She was persistent! When we felt like quitting the process, she responded, " You can't give up on me now! You have been dealing with this for 5 years!" She truly cared! Our heartfelt thanks, again, to you Ellyn!!!

  2. Highly recommended!

    • I recommend Ellyn Tanenberg.

    During our nearly three years working together, I have been consistently impressed by Ellyn’s attention to detail, dedication, resourcefulness, perseverance and honest guidance when it has come to resolving my extremely complicated tax situation. Upon receiving permanent residency to the US, I discovered I owed several years' worth of taxes to the government. Navigating both tax law and the US immigration law, Ellyn left no stone unturned as she investigated the facts and triangulated her findings with various sources in order to be able to file city, state and federal taxes on my behalf. Each fact and figure was supported by a specific tax code or detailed advice from an authority in the IRS who Ellyn personally contacted. Throughout the process, Ellyn’s genuine concern for my case and cheery disposition made her a real pleasure to work with. I cannot recommend Ellyn highly enough - you can rest assured, she will get to the bottom of even the most challenging of tax situations!

    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    For years I have made several attempts to seek the service of business accountants. There is one word which can describe my opinion of their service, incompetence. I had pretty much given up until I found Ellyn Tanenberg. This accountant/lawyer is not your run of the mill professional. She pays stick attention to details, and goes out of her way to find every deduction. She really cares about her clients.
