I wish I had contacted Richard earlier in my life. Like most people I assumed I understand my taxes and my financial decisions were sound. Once I hired Richard and reviewed my first few returns, only then did I realize how little I knew. Even if you are not working overseas where things get so very complicated, it's worth seeking his advice and services. I can not recommend Richard enough, you will not regret it. I can honestly say my financial health has been vastly improved thanks to a combination of my labour and Richard's excellent counseling on my tax returns and tax related decisions. Without him, my finances would not be in such a healthy state.

Richard was great! I had a significant change in my life that resulted in some fear in doing my Taxes this year. Richard was very accommodating and helpful. He addressed all my concerns and warned me about some other tax situations that I was unaware of and which could have costs me significantly. Highly recommend Richard and I will continue to use him in the future.
