In addition to that, Phil has aslo taught courses in Accounting and Taxation.

My firm is dedicated to helping individuals, small businesses and freelance professionals with tax preparation, tax planning, tax management and basic accounting and bookkeeping services which will help them navigate complex tax laws and regulations successfully.
As a specialist, I am dedicated to keeping abreast of trends, rulings and developments in federal and NY State taxes. Applying the most current information to my clients’ individual situations I help them to maximize their deductions and avoid common pitfalls.
Directly related to Personal Income Tax, I offer services to small businesses and services designed for self-employed individuals and “freelancers” tailored to their needs and budget. From setting up a system which allows a small business operator to easily keep their own books to bookkeeping and accounting services and tax return preparation, I offer an alternative to the “computer consultants” who sell software and the CPA firms which use junior staff on small business engagements.
I am also committed to providing superior tax preparation services at reasonable fees to middle-class individuals and families who want their returns prepared by a CPA but simply can't pay the kind of fees most CPAs charge.
