"I have used the tax services of Vanessa since 2010 and have found her to be a reliable source for tax preparation and advice. Her work is accurate and on time. She and her staff are always pleasant and courteous."

Dr. William Andersen, Brevard, NC


My taxes were done by Vanessa Freud this year. I was so pleased how well organized and clear  they were done. For the past 30 years I have done my own taxes mostly by Turbo Tax. This past year I bought a Mac computer laptop. I am an accountant by profession  now retired, but trying to do my taxes on my new Mac was too much of a challenge at my tender age of 83.

I had some other accounting firm doing my 2014 taxes. I was  appalled the way they were done, so decided to find someone else for my 2015 tax return. I got just the right person in Vanessa.

I am very familiar  with taxes after having done them myself for so many years. I will definitely have her do my taxes from now on. I also feel very comfortable to call her if I have some tax questions I need  clarified.

"Dear Vanessa Freund,

I just wanted to provide a couple of sentences to express my deepest gratitude to you for the tax services you have provided me with the past year. Your patience and technical expertise quickly resolved what seemed to be a complex and mentally taxing issue (pard the pun ;-) for me!  You are truly a gifted expert in your field of practice and I cannot begin to express what an honor and pleasure it is to know you. Thank you so much for all your wonderful assistance in making life a little less challenging !!"

"I love Vanessa! She is personable, trustworthy, generous, and makes the "tax experience" easy and low-stress. Funny, I always leave her office feeling better than I did when I walked in - which is an unexpected perk when you're in the midst of tax season. Not to mention she really knows her stuff, and specializes in working with small business owners like me. Highly recommend!"

 "When I opened my business, I found the accounting aspects to be a bit more than I was prepared for.  I was blessed enough  to locate Vanessa, who led me in the right direction to help grow my business as quickly as possible, all the while making sure that I was completely taken care of where taxes and all things accounting were involved.  Vanessa has always been available whenever I needed her to answer questions and guide me with my business accounting.   I greatly appreciate her skills, and I have complete confidence in her knowledge. "
