Bud Krater is excellent. My old bookkeeper had becomecomplacent and I showed Bud my books and he found several errs right off the bat and helped me save several hundred dollars and this was in the first 5 minutes. He has alot of experience and knowledge and is an overall great guy. Says what he does and does what he says.

He did our personal and business taxes for 2015 and 2016. He combined the 2 and screwed us out of money instead of doing business and then personal. When my husband called him irate he hung up on him and refused to take our calls. He was paid in full and we are going on 2 months now taxes have not been filed nor have they been mailed out to us yet. When my husband left a review on Google was hosted actions are why we don't have them yet. He is very un professional. I would NOT recommend them to anyone

Rough start, but nice finish. Scheduled an appointment and it ended up being double booked at the same time as another couple. I got there at the same time as the others but they entered the door first. Bud handled it as well as I could have asked by spending 10 minutes with me as the other folks waited. Obviously, that didn't seem like enough time but my records were well organized and Bud seemed to understand what I handed over. He emailed me with a question about a week after my appointment. A day or two later he said my return was complete but would be checked over by an assistant. A day or two after that I got a notice that my return was ready for signing. Everything looked good although I failed to catch that he had used my previous address from my 2015 return of which I had given him a copy. My wife caught that and it took a couple more days for Bud to respond because he was crazy busy. He was able to correct it prior to e-filing. This mistake could be attributed to my hurried initial meeting. Despite a bit of frustration I like the man a lot and he seemed to be someone I could trust with his long experience. Other folks should definitely give him a try. All is well.

Bud has done my income taxes for about 15 years - always the professional. Then I had a problem with some partners and was very fortunate to have Bud help me resolve the tax problems resulting from that mess. BUD SOLVES TAX PROBLEMS!!! I will stay with him as long as he is in business!

I was thankful to have gone to Bud because he was so experienced, he was able to quickly resolve Moms social security identity issues with the IRS. His friendly and very professional manner made this difficult situation so much easier to deal with. I would highly recommend his services for everyone, for either a business or individual. Also, the fact that he is available all year for any questions that may come up, is a great additional benefit!

Im new to the area and researched Angie's List for someone to prepare my taxes. Decided on Bud and his staff based on the positive reviews. They were extremely helpful and kind. Bud is a gentleman and a professional who listens to his clients and provides exceptional guidance and service. I should note that prior to going to Bud, I visited another tax preparer in the area that seemed uninterested and in a hurry when dealing with me. Bud was completely the opposite. He is very knowledgable and seems to care about his clients. I highly recommend him.

I did my taxes myself with Turbo Tax but I wanted a CPA to review them to see if there were any problems or to make suggestions of additional ways I could save. Bud did this very competently. He asked good questions, was very knowledgeable, and professional. I highly recommend him.
