It is a tremendous pleasure to work with freedom from accounting. Unlike others in this space who simply prepare your tax return and tell you what you owe or get back, Freedom From Accounting takes the time to get to know you and provide tailored advice to help you pay less in taxes. Thank you for always watching out for me and my clients.
