I would welcome a phone call from this alleged client to discuss the matter of which I'm being accused. I've had no conflicts with any clients, so as far as I'm concerned this review is nothing but an attempt by "someone" to discredit my business which, was built on a platform of ethics and professionalism. I would never conduct myself in the manner of which this individual suggests. I am proud of the practice I've built by providing my clients with excellent service and professional conduct. I invite this person to come forward and confront me with their grievance (if it even exists) rather than slander me and hide behind their screen name. Mark

Last week we met with Mark to pick up our business and personal tax returns. Accounting Consortium was recommended to us by a friend. We had 3 years of past due returns that had to be filed and the IRS was putting on the pressure. Our friend assured us that Accounting Consortium was the place we needed to be. Mark helped us get more time with the IRS to complete the returns and his ability to help ease our stress was amazing. The tax package that we were presented with, was professionally prepared and Mark took a lot of time to explain to us what our position was with regard to the results of our returns. We couldn't be more pleased with our experience and will be back each year to have our taxes prepared by Accounting Consortium. We highly recommend them for your tax preparation needs.

We've been working with AC for a few years and every year we're late getting our information to Mark and every year he follows up with us to make sure our extensions are filed on time and then reminds us when we're getting close to the extended filing deadline. If AC didn't provide that follow up service, our taxes probably wouldn't get filed. Thanks for all your great work.

Our small business used Mark to file taxes and keep our books. He never returned calls, did not file in time and would not give us copies of his work so we could ask questions and get clarification. We ended up finding another accountant and when he looked at what Mark prepared, it was totally inaccurate. When Mark could not figure out where to put an entry, he would lump it under "Marketing Expenses". Which is WRONG. Find a CPA to help you not Mark!!!!

I had several issues with late tax filings and turned to Mark to assist me with catching up my late returns. I tried to figure it out myself using a boxed software package but I knew I didn't know what I was doing and it wasn't turning out in my favor. Mark whipped out the returns in a couple of days and to my surprise I was getting money back. It was apparent that I didn't know what I was doing. Mark was great at explaining the details to me and had everything ready for me down to the pre-addressed envelopes. On top of it all, his fee was much less than I was anticipating. I will be back year after year to have Accounting Consortium complete my income taxes.

Mark is great! He is easy to get in touch with (which is rare with accountants), he is very knowledgeable, and he went the extra mile for me while he was swamped at the beginning of April. Great experience and I am 100% going back with both my business and personal taxes next year!!

I called Accounting Consortium this year to help me out of a tax mess. Mark was quick at resolving my problem and had an answer for every question I asked. He fixed a bad situation and was so pleasant and easy to work with. I've been to some of his competitors in the past who, by the way, got me into this tax mess and I had to deal with staff who knew nothing about taxes and were rude besides. Now that my problem has passed I feel good about moving forward with my business plans and based on the references that I received about Mark's accounting service, I will hire him to handle my accounting needs. I am very thrilled to have had the opportunity to meet Mark and work with him. I highly recommend Accounting Consortium for you income tax and accounting needs.

Accounting Consortium, specifically Mark, has been preparing my taxes for several years and I have never been more pleased with the service I am provided. I had changed accountants a few times and even fell prey to the big box tax companies but when I found Mark I immediately felt a feeling of relief and comfort just after my introduction to him. He is kind, concerned and thorough. I am simply thrilled to know him and to have him work on my taxes. Give Mark a try, you too will understand why I would never work with any other accountant.

If it wasn't for Accounting Consortium I would have a horrific mess on my hands. They took over my accounting functions, handle my payroll and all of my taxes. I would not be able to run my company with confidence if I didn't have AC handling my books and cleaning up after me. I know I'm one of those "high maintenance" clients and they've never indicated to me that I've caused them any trouble. They have great patience and tolerance for my lack of accounting ability and make sure that I am always on the right track. Give Mark a call and let him help you get yourself organized. He's great to work with and their fees are so reasonable. I just couldn't do it without them and I doubt any other accountant would tolerate me they way they do. Thank you Mark :)

We were referred to Mark approx. 3 years ago when our current accountant fell ill. We didn't want to switch and were upset about having such a big decision thrown at us weeks before taxes were due. What a gem Mark has been! He stepped in, filled the shoes and in our opinion has never given us reason to question. He handles our self-employment/personal taxes with ease. Stay healthy Mark - we can't afford to lose you!

Just when I thought I was going to lose complete faith in the accounting and tax industry, I found Mark. He got my records in tip top shape after my last accountant nearly ruined me and has kept my tax filings up to date since then. His tax experience and accounting skills are unmatched by any other. Mark is never allowed to retire! If you need an accountant call Accounting Consortium. You'll be glad you did. . .believe me!
Awesome professional accounting services. Helped me create my S-Corp, does all my corporate finances and personal taxes...What a mess my finances would be without Accounting Consortiium!
I have been working with Mark of Accounting Consortium for the last few years and he has provided consistent and excellent tax preparation services for me. Now, he is assisting me with setting up my small business and I have complete confidence that Mark will provide me with accounting services that match his excellent tax preparation service.
I have been working with Mark for the last 4 years and what I love the best is the consistency and professionalism. I appreciate the knowledge and sincere interest that Mark has in our business. We are always busy running around and handling our business and we're comforted knowing that Mark is right behind us taking care of our needs. I don't know what we would do without him. There aren't many bean counters who show the kind of care that Mark does with his clients. Doris
