Meticulous – These guys are good. As other reviewers have said, very professional, detail-oriented, thorough and quick. Been going to them for almost 10 years. Gary passed me over to his associate Ed Mignogna a few years back and he's been great. Recommended.
get your taxes done here – My whole family goes here and it is an A+ operation. I have my taxes prepared by Paul and he is brilliant and meticulous to detail. I would never go anywhere else.
Very Professional Tax Service – I have been getting my taxes prepared at Gary Reska & Associates for many years. Gary Reska runs a top notch operation - very professional and knowledgeable - really knows his business. Have always felt I was in very good hands.
Edmond Mignogna has been preparing my taxes for years- I always ask for him - very organized, thorough and knowledgeable - makes the process seamless.
Wouldn't consider going anywhere else.
Best Tax Prep for NYC Teachers! – I have been doing my taxes through Gary Reska's office for 6 years now. I first heard about his business through the NYC Teacher's Union newspaper. What's great is that they have all the information on hand to process teacher taxes: they factor in our union dues, classroom expenses, professional development, all these little things that we teachers sometimes forget about.
Mary Britt processes our taxes every year and is excellent at making sure that we don't forget anything. Over the past 6 years, she has personally seen my taxes change as I got married, bought a home and now am preparing for the birth of my daughter. She even advised me on what documents I will need to bring next year when our daughter is born. It's always a pleasure to take the trip to the Upper East Side to get my taxes done in a pleasant environment by professionals.
Excellent Tax Preparation Services – I have been a client of Gary Reska for four years. Mary Britt has prepared my taxes each year. The location is excellent, the hours are extended and the fee charged is reasonable. It's also a pleasant, professional atmosphere. They do a professional job, and file my return electronically. I have never had a problem, and would recommend them highly.
Tax Filing made simple – Christa S.
A friend of mine recommended Gary Reska to me and I have been going to him ever since, which is now more than 10 years. Even though I live on the Upper West Side, I do not mind to travel across town because of the attention and service quality I receive. I never had a problem scheduling an appointment and always feel welcome. I have used Edmond Mignogna over the past few years for filing my tax returns and never incurred any problems. Gary also has been very helpful throughout the year getting answers for me with various financial questions I have had. I highly recommend them and would never change to some chain.
Gary Reska Services – Hello Gary Reska -
I have been working with Mary Britt for 3 years and she is the best... Concise, Smart and gets the job done!!!!
If you want your taxes done right see MARY!!!!!!!
AVOID THIS PLACE IF ALL POSSIBLE!!!!! – Only positive. Most likely you will not wait very long.
Cons: You will have to get your taxes amended by another source. Be weary of what they tell you as they are only concerned with getting the job done as fast as possible. Quantity, not quality....
Bottom line, the accountant messed up my claims and instead of oweing a ton of money...I'm getting a refund.
Ask your friends and families for other places to go...
DO NOT LET THIS MAN DO YOUR TAXES – We filed through Gary our first two years in NY.
We have now been contacted by the IRS three times regarding those two returns...
Both years they "fat-fingered" a number, telling the Gov that I had paid more in withholding tax than I actually did.
They also filed my tuition deduction incorrectly, never factoring in the loans that I took out, telling the Gov I paid twice what I actually paid in tuition fees...
Gary's response to the first error was magnanimous: "You would have had to pay the amount due anyway, right, but I would like to pay for all the penalties and fees, is that okay?" To which I replied "Yes" because he was right.
The second response was "Don't pay any more, you already paid once, they're probably confused..." To which I thought "Maybe I should call them anyhow..." And thankfully did, I DID owe another penalty which they were willing to forgive.
My third contact... I haven't cooled down enough to make with him yet...
But seriously, do you really care what the third contact is like? THREE IRS LETTERS regarding TWO RETURNS!!
This place is a freaking chop-shop!!
Now on to the regulatory commission...
15 yrs of satisfying tax service! – I've filed with Gary and his crew for over 15 years, and I've always been satisfied. They support e-filing, they are fast and efficient, the prices are fair and include audit insurance. (I've never been audited on a Reska return.) They keep great records, and they know their business.
If you want a whole lot of babying and hand-holding, this might not be the place for you, though -- they're tax preparers, and not life coaches or therapists, and they stick to what they know.
