Bob Janelli Janelli Security I have used Zulch Tax Consultants & Accountants for my businesses and my personal finances for the past several years. They prepare tax returns for two local businesses, Red Hook Commons LLC and Janelli, Inc. and prepare tax returns for me personally and for my family members that live in New York City, Massachusetts and Vermont. Their staff is very knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient.
What I like about Kevin and his staff the most, is the way they work and guide you through the process of collecting the necessary data so that they can prepare tax returns that are the most beneficial to you.
In addition to preparing my tax returns every year, Kevin reviews my financial data quarterly and makes the tax savings recommendations that might not be possible to implement at the end of the year.
I would highly recommend Zulch Tax Consultants & Accountants to anyone who needs tax return preparation or accounting services.
Adam E. New Rochelle, NY I have been using Zulch tax prep for my personal taxes for more than 10 years and for my business taxes for 6 years. Kevin Zulch is diligent, smart and hardworking. He asks a lot of questions to make sure that nothing is missing from my tax filings. I have complete confidence in his work and, further, his staff is a pleasure to work with. On top of all that his fees are very reasonable. I would, and frequently do, recommend him to anyone looking for an accountant.
Melinda W. Brooklyn, NY I've been working w/ Kevin Zulch in a professional capacity for over 10 years. I have been a Small Business Consultant for both Wholesale Design Companies & Fashion & Gift Retail Stores. While I am capable of almost all financial guidelines for these types of businesses, I am nowhere near being an accountant. I can set up systems for business to track expenses, categorize them, produce P&L's, etc, but really have no idea what to depreciate, how to handle the tax needs of various independent business owners setup in different tax situations (LLC's, S-Corps, Sole Proprietors) Etc.
This is where Kevin comes to the rescue. I have had both difficult & easy clients (personality wise); Kevin was able to handle both w/ professional aplomb. As well, all of my clients had needs very particular to the Wholesale/Retail Industries, with many difficult to track overlaps between their personal & and professional financial lives. Kevin was able to sort out all their knotted, tangled situations, satisfy me, my clients & produce accurate & helpful tax filings.
I would not hesitate to recommend Kevin to anyone for either personal or professional needs. My only caveat would be to act quickly ~ his business is popular & growing & the sooner you begin working w/ him, the sooner you tax worries & headaches will go away.
I would also like to add that over the years I've had my own share of financial questions I needed help w/ that were very personal (deaths in the family, medical troubles, etc): Kevin is extremely easy to talk to, nothing shakes him & he is impeccably respectful & circumspect regarding all conversation.
F M. Bronx, NY Kevin Zulch has been providing tax advice and preparing my taxes without issue since approximately 1998. I have found him to be extremely detailed and conscientious. Not only do I speak with him at tax time, but he provides quite a bit of information and advice throughout the year as situations arise. I am certain that other providers would certainly charge for this time but Kevin is very accommodating. He is a genuinely nice guy. I would recommend him without reservation.
M. B. Rhinebeck, NY With confidence I have filing my taxes with his office for 3 years, in addition without even asking, I have been supplied with the best tax information I've received. He thought of things I never would have asked. He is the best accountant I've been to and I've been filing since 1978. I am so glad I am working with his office.
I found him after speaking with a V.P. at a local bank that I knew would steer me in the right direction. She gave me 3 referrals. After interviewing Mr. Zulch on the phone, I decided he was worth meeting. I knew the right questions to ask after being burned by a local accountant. Mr. Zulch possessed superior knowledge and I felt at ease to ask questions. I received a "no cost" consultation. He listened to my tribulations in addition coached me on suggestions for my future. It was like talking to a friend well accomplished in his field. He was concerned about my welfare.
Prior to this, I was working with a female accountant that was highly recommended and since she received rave reviews, I booked an appointment. I was looking forward to working with her, assuming it would be reassuring to work with a woman. I figured I was getting the top of the line. At the time I was going through a difficult period; embarrassed my income was low, living off my retirement, dealing with a bad divorce that left me with debt, plus I was a new resident. I needed an accountant that did more than just take my papers and call me when my returns were ready to be signed.
It was not a good fit from the beginning, but I felt resigned to continue because she was nice. Every time I asked for suggestions, I felt she was annoyed and doing me a favor. Her answers were typical; advice I could find online. The finale was circumstances turned and I had to leave her practice. I picked up a huge error which should have been obvious. I felt I was paying for nothing but a headache. If I hadn't pointed this error out, it would have been a red flag to the IRS, costing me penalties. After that, I was uncomfortable to call her and I just wanted to pick up my corrected return and never go back. It was a blessing in disguise.
Contrasting to that, after my first appointment with Mr. Zulch, I got papers together and set an appointment to file taxes. The clock was never ticking and I left with every question answered and he gave me ideas for my future well-being. I figured I had to pay immediately, but I was told it wasn't his protocol. I was sent a bill ONLY upon satisfaction and completion. It took me weeks before I sent a check. His office never bothered me, in fact they told me NOT to worry.
Most people avoid accounts like the way they avoid their dentists. I look forward to get my W 2's to have them in the hands of someone I trust. This year more than ever I need suggestions as I've gone back to school, have loans and am planning to apply for scholarships. I need his expertise...with that said, I highly recommend Kevin not only as an account, but as someone with a heart of gold who understands what it's like to need proper tax counseling. Pick up the phone and with no hesitancy set an appointment. Just the sound of his voice is comforting.
S D. Arlington, VA Zulch, Inc. offers a wide range of services but my favorite is the outstanding advice they provide throughout the year to their clients. Their quarterly e-newsletters are spot-on and informative with tax tidbits designed to help businesses, families, and individuals minimize their current and future tax liabilities.
Zulch, Inc. provides excellent tax preparation and consultation and can forecast future tax years based on expectations and your overall financial condition. Their experienced staff return your calls promptly, quelling any anxiety you may have regarding tax preparation.
Most of all when I moved from the State of New York to Virginia they prepared my return with the same level of service. I have been with Zulch, Inc. for 12 years and they service my family along with several friends who are all return clients.
You're not just a client at tax time but a valued customer who will return year after year.
Russ B. Red Hook, NY I own and operate a local business in Red Hook, Ny. I would first like to say what a pleasure it has been dealing with Kevin and his staff in my first three years in business. Owning a busy restaurant is no easy task, and dealing with all of the rules and regulations with NY state has been overwhelming at times. But Kevin and his team have have made it so much easier for me to deal with. His guidance has helped my business to prosper in a very difficult economy. From what I gather he has many clients but he always made me feel very important as a client of his. He always seemed available to answer any of my questions or concerns that would come up from time to time. I can't say enough good things about my experiences with Kevin and his team.
Peter A. Red Hook, NY Mr Kevin Zulch has been my accountant for five years. I am a retired federal law enforcement agent and take all matters related to my government tax obligations most seriously. I have found Kevin to be first and foremost professional, diligent and an individual whose honesty and integrity is without question. I would recommend him as an honest, trustworthy and knowledgeable accountant. I look forward to a continued professional relationship with Mr Zulch.
Susan N. Manhattan, NY I have worked with Kevin Zulch for over ten years. He has been my accountant for my personal income as well as my side business (corporation) and treats all of my tax needs with professionalism and accuracy that only comes with years of experience. He is honest and trustworthy - as an entertainment executive with a high profile position, he is exactly what I need in a tax consultant and accountant.
Gail N. Greenville, NY My entire family and many friends have used Kevin Zulch for close to twenty years and have been completely satisfied with his work ethics and knowledgeability. His fees have been more them reasonable for the time and effort placed into each return placed over the years. He has solved many issues in the past that previous accountants have failed to resolve which has been a great relief to us. He has worked on personal as well as corporate/ business issues and returns. I recommend his services highly and have complete trust in his ability!
Adrienne L. Brooklyn, NY I've been getting my taxes prepared by Zulch for over 10 years and have had beyond excellent service. This business has had enormous integrity, honesty and a high level of customer service. In fact, as this business has moved and expanded I decided to stay with the company due to the level of service. Have there been a few bumps? Sure, but mostly do to ramping up new people. Even as the economy has tanked and I have gone through my ups and downs Zulch, Inc has worked with me on reducing debt and making sure my taxes have been up-to-date and taken care of immediately. I have recommended Zulch, Inc to numerous folks who have stayed on year over year.
