"Doing taxes as a new business or home owner can be pretty daunting for the first time but thanks to Peter Alizio I had nothing to worry about. His knowledge and expertise was invaluable in my situation. He makes himself available with timely call backs and emails. If your looking a new, reliable and personal accountant/tax attorney then Peter is your guy." -Jarrel (see full review)
"I actually have a phobic reaction to doing my taxes, and had not done so for twenty years. As a result, my anxiety was sky-high when I first walked into this office. Although Mr. Alizio seemed somewhat bemused by my quaking, he quickly was able to make me feel more comfortable. Over a series of meetings, things were worked out very much to my satisfaction, and I feel that this was money very well-spent." -Ruth (see full review)
