As a real estate landlord, I conducted a 1031 exchange in 2014 and did several other buys, rehabs, leases, home office use, and even a solar panel install. Trying to calculate the correct depreciation and basis for the real estate was a real bear, and I wasn't confident in the math. My tax situation was too complicated for me, even with quite a few years of Turbotax and financial training experience, so a friend referred me to Gary and he did an awesome job. The initial consultation took about an hour for me to get the needed paperwork to him in an orderly fashion, and after that he had a few, concise questions to finish the return. I was very happy to see my bill with Turbotax go from $6000 to less than half that after Gary did my return (correctly!) I was very thrilled with the savings and would be happy to refer him to others.

Gary was recommended to my by my awesome book-keeping company, OfficeAssist (Candy Beauchamp). Gary has helped me greatly in getting my taxes done on time, resolve IRS issues and keep my taxes up-to-date! I trust him completely with regards to tax and payroll services.

I first met Gary when I purchased a new estimating software program for my construction company. I found he was not only knowledgeable with the software but he was also a CPA. Gary was not just helpful in my learning experience with the software; the savings he found from the start helped with the growth of my business and now 20 years later we continue our business relationship. Gary does my business and personal tax returns. He is available when I need a question answered, he keeps up with technology, and he is efficient, honest and reliable. I would recommend Gary due to our long and very satisfied work history experience.

Gary Petry has been preparing my taxes since 2013. This month I received a letter from the IRS stating I owed over $4,700 in back taxes from 2014. I called Gary, he requested the required power of attorney. The same day I dropped off the signed power of attorney, Gary emailed me all was resolved - the IRS was in error. I have always appreciated Gary's professionalism and timely tax preparation, but getting the IRS off my back on a Friday afternoon gets 5 stars!

Gary has been my accountant for more than a decade. First CPA that ever made me understand paying an accountant is worth the money.

Have recommended many people to him and they have always reported that they were very happy with his work.

Even have him handling a relative that lives in the Middle East.  

Steady and consistent and a true asset to your business or individual taxes.

  First to Review

I have to second Michael's review, particularly in regards to real estate landlord business.  I'm not afraid of numbers or digging into tax law but my situation in 2014 passed beyond my knowledge.  Perhaps more importantly, I didn't have the time to get into it because I was closing on another house and needed 2014's tax returns within a week to get the loan through underwriting.  Gary delivered with quick and unexpected results, in the form of a hefty return from the govt.  Gary also looked at previous years tax returns and got me some money back there too.  I've not bothered with CPAs in the past because I assumed all they did was plug numbers into the computer just like I've done with Turbotax.  Not so, anymore!  I can now stop loathing my ever-more-complicated tax returns and focus on collecting those business receipts and keeping track of vehicle mileage.  The process was smooth and we're even strategizing about how to maximize returns for next year.  Good investment, for sure, and highly recommended.
