Kundra Tax
Chaya and her associates provided the most competent and professional tax counsel imaginable. They were thorough, creative, honorable and realistic in their approach to resolving tax policy and responses.

Highly ethical and professional attorney
I have worked with Ms. Kundra on numerous occasions over the past 16 years and have consistently been impressed with her work ethic and the high standards of professionalism she adheres to. I would not hesitate to recommend her as a tax attorney.

I could not have been better served.
After being wrongly pursued by a government agency for a significant sum in back taxes I was recently informed by Ms. Kundra that the charges were rescinded. I cannot express my appreciation enough for the dogged effort by the folks at Kundra & Associates in this matter. They are professional yet practice a comforting guidance; they are aggressive, informed, and well respected, yet never arrogant. Their effort to clear me of the charges was unwavering and, ultimately, successful. I could not have been better served.

The Business Tax Attorney for your Team
We hired Chaya and her team to help us navigate through complex tax issues and are glad to have her on our team. She has become a partner in our success and we will continue to seek counsel from Kundra & Associates as we grow and adapt to the changing tax laws.

Ms. Kundra is a top-flight advocate!!
My first meeting with Ms. Chaya Kundra sealed the deal. I wanted a top-flight advocate in my corner and Ms. Kundra is exactly that. She was recommended to me by my long-time family attorney who knew she was highly thought of by her peers. She is extremely knowledgeable about current tax law and just how it’s applied. On the federal side, she knows how to deal with the key players and wouldn’t relent until we won. She provided an accurate timeline I could live with. If you have a conflict with the State of Maryland, buckle up. You will need a staunch ally and excellent attorney in your corner. Ms. Kundra is exactly that. At the lawyer to lawyer level, she was magic. She speaks their language persuasively. It’s hard to describe the feeling of freedom my wife and I had when the case was resolved. I couldn’t have had a better outcome.

Highly recommend Ms. Kundra for any tax issue
I highly recommend Ms. Chaya Kundra and the team at Kundra & Associates for any tax issue you might have. Out of the blue, I received what was to me a frightening letter from the Comptroller of Maryland with little time to respond. I contacted the comptroller’s office but couldn’t get much information. Stressed and concerned, I reached out to Kundra & Associates for help. What a relief! From the very first call, I could tell that everyone at Kundra & Associates is extremely competent as well as personable: warm, friendly, and compassionate. Ms. Kundra is fantastic. She listened carefully to everything I said. Then, she clearly explained the issues, exactly what steps she would take, and what roadblocks might come up, all in language that was easy for me to understand. I could feel the weight leave my shoulders the first time we spoke. I was thrilled to have her on my side, fighting for me. Ms. Kundra is fast and effective. This was the first time I had ever hired an attorney and it really was a fantastic experience. I absolutely recommend Kundra & Associates.

Turned my financial situation around
Ms Kundra has been my tax attorney for over ten years. I was in a wretched, upside-down situation with both corporate and personal tax debt and felt that I'd never get out from under it. She is sharp, knowledgeable, and professional, but also sensitive to her clients. She dealt with both federal and state issues and got me back in a place I hadn't been in years -- able to look ahead (positively!) to my future.

incredibly knowledgeable
Ms. Kundra has a wealth of information on tax law, tri-state area sales and use tax, income tax and proper procedures in dealing with government entities. I found her to be excellent to work with, ready with necessary documentation as well as the law which encompasses the subject matter at hand. Very confident in explaining the law and the work performed.

Mixed bag.
We owed back taxes to the IRS and the State, hired Ms.Kundra to help. The IRS problem was settled after about two and a half yearsand 3 different, successive attorneys. For the State, we were given misleadinginformation, which resulted in a new assessment, higher interest and penalties,additional fees and another year’s delay. A mixed and costly experience.

Good initial consultation, then downhill fast.
I hired Ms. Kundra for my tax problems. Ended up cutting my losses and found another lawyer. At that point, I had paid almost four times as much as the estimate Ms. Kundra had promised for a full resolution of my case - with no end in sight. Also, lawyers were replaced at the firm several times, so new ones had to be assigned to redo the work at my expense. Quite a regretful experience overall.

A painful experience
I sought her legal help. My case (according to her) was not complex, and when asked during consultation I was told that a resolution plan will be provided within the estimated cost expenditure. After months of invoicing, charging a lot of fees, no plan was provided instead more money was asked. I had to give several reminders, to provide me a work product other than just receiving invoices. It was disheartening to experience such poor customer service and misleading of a client. The work product when provided had mistakes with several incorrect statements. With such a terrible experience, a lot of money charged no concrete result, I had to end the agreement. Even during closure more money was charged in invoices for work that was very bad and questionable.

No added value
Ms. Kundra represented me for several years in federal and state tax matters. Her associates on my case changed and they had to redo their work. The work consisted of the basics, only describing without making recommendations as to how to solve the problems. The fees were exorbitant and I had to switch lawyers because she couldn’t get the job done. Terrible client interface. she prejudiced the outcome of my case by unwarranted delays. She worked a part time schedule and iverdekegated to incompetent associates. I have never had a worse experience with a lawyer.
