Ken at Ken-mar tax has been doing financial & tax work for me, several family members & friends for years. It took me a visit or 2 to get comfortable with Ken. The tax work he was doing seemed like I should be able to do this & save $150.00-250.00 per year, but as I got to know Ken, realized he is just good at what he does. He stepped up quickly when the IRS wanted $4500 in back taxes, to provide advice & contact with the IRS to get this to a zero, $00.00, tax liability & he didn’t ask for a penny more. Not only does Ken do great work, trust has been built & he is helping me with my investment portfolio. You can’t go wrong with Ken-mar tax.

We used Ken-Mar Tax to prepare our 2013 Federal, State, & Local income tax returns plus my student son’s taxes too.  Our appointment went very well. Ken is appropriately informal and funny, he makes the not fun task of sitting there having your taxes done way more pleasant. He also was able to get us a HUGE refund this year which is awesome!  I know I will no longer use TurboTax to do my own taxes…that would just be insane! I would have missed out on at least 50% of my refunds if I had done my taxes myself. I highly recommend Ken.

I chose to go with Ken-Mar tax services after I found a coupon on Angies list for $169 .  After having done my own tax returns for several years, they were getting more complicated and I was afraid that I may have made errors.  Ken was very professional and reasonably priced compared to others that I had compared. He is very thorough and knows what he is doing.  I was an overall good experience.  He looked at my past returns and ammended those giving me extra $2000!!!  I ended up with my largest tax refund ever, so I am very happy! I highly recommend Ken-Mar Tax and will be a returning customer next year.

Ken prepared my taxes.  I had multiple W2’s and K1’s, HSA account, 401k and IRA accounts to account for.  I didn’t have the time to prepare the returns myself, so I sent all my paperwork via secured email.  Ken reviewed the information and prepared the returns very quickly  – which I appreciated.

Found Mr Weinberg and his associates to be very helpful and considerate in our dealings. His confidentiality is top notch. He had to prepare not only my tax forms, but discovered another refund overlooked in prior years involving RITA taxes. Additionally, he advised me on some Social Security issues I didn’t know about. Can’t say enough about his service. Will recommend him at any opportunity.

Ken Weinberg has prepared my personal income taxes for the last several years and he has always done an excellent job. In the first year that he prepared my taxes, he discovered that my pay was set up for deductions for two municipalities, one of which should have been canceled two years earlier.  He instructed me how to request the appropriate refunds, which returned several hundred dollars to me! And I promptly requested my payroll department to cancel the unnecessary deduction. Thank you, Ken.

We were referred to Ken through Angies list – THANK YOU ANGIE!  What appealed to us was not only the excellent ratings but Kens response to the few less than satisfactory reviews.  It really showed that Ken cares about what he is doing and his reputation. What can I say? Ken got us a refund we could never have expected through turbo tax!  He really knows his stuff!  It was by far the best experience we have ever had for any service – period. Ken and his staff was punctual, professional, friendly and courteous.  I can not give him a better referral.  Run do not walk to Ken for your taxes!

We have used Ken-Mar Tax to complete and file our federal, state and city tax forms for several years now.  It always goes wonderful.  Ken is savvy with the tax laws, knows his stuff and just an overall really nice guy to work with related to our taxes.

Ken did the personal taxes for me and my wife.  He was extremely quick at figuring out the best way to save me money–and in fact, he figured out a way that my wife and I could file jointly and save even more money!  It was done quickly and effectively and saved us about $1,000.

Ken prepared my 2013 tax returns – I purchased his early bird special.  Rate is normally a little higher but still less than the tax preparer I used for the previous two years.  I was very pleased with the service provided.  I brought my paperwork with me (organized) but since this was our first meeting, I did know exactly what he would want.  He completed all of the forms required in a little over an hour and noticed an error made by my preparer from the prior year.  Additionally, when I couldn’t find two important numbers (property tax & mortgage interest on my rental) he looked up the tax for me on the web and then called my mortgage broker for the interest.  Very helpful despite having a full day of appointments.  I will definitely continue to use his tax return services each year.

I was impressed by Ken’s friendliness and knowledge.  After using many tax preparers over the years I would say Ken was head and shoulders above the rest.  I had a complex tax return and he taught me how to do everything right which no one before was able to do as completely.  He also showed me that I should be actually paying less than I had estimated and why.  I would give him an A+ rating overall if it was available and I will be recommending him to my family and friends as tax season nears.

Tax Reduction Strategies for the Self-Employed

Ken Weinberg of Ken-Mar Tax truly specializes in tax-reduction srtategies in the self-employed. As an Enrolled Agent Ken is very comfortable with what the IRS will and will not tolerate for business deductions and Ken can walk you through, not only how to minimize your tax obligation for this year, but how to set up a business strategy that could reduce your future tax liabilities.  The reviews below were left by Ken-Mar Tax customers that were filing as self-employed.

Ken is fantastic!  I have been going to him now for about 3 years to file income tax returns as a property investor with a separate full-time W-2 job.  He has even corrected previous years returns that were done incorrectly by me. This year the taxes were a bit more complicated due to a lot of rental expenses.  Fortunately Ken was knowledgeable about changes in the tax law and was able to get me all the deductions which resulted in a much higher refund that I had anticipated.  The price is always very reasonable for what you get.  I would highly recommend and will keep going to him to prepare my taxes.

Ken-Mar saved me literally thousands of $$$ on my 1040 and S-corp filings versus what I had been shelling out in the past with another provider.  I’m now going to have him audit my previous years filings (at no cost!) to see if I should file amended returns to collect on any overpayments.

Ken Weinberg has done our taxes for the last two years. We had always used Turbo Tax, but when I started my own business last year, I thought I could use a little extra help. This year was a bit trickier, but nothing that couldn’t easily be taken care of. Ken takes time to explain what he is doing, how the deductions work, and even gives advice on preparing for tax changes in the future. He will even review the options to make sure you are filing in the most cost effective way (jointly/separately). If you need some extra help, or just want to feel comfortable knowing that you have filed correctly to save you the most money, I highly recommend Ken. It took about 30 minutes to get everything entered and my taxes finished up!

I hired Ken-Mar tax to look over and re-do my corporate and personal tax for the past few years. I was very surprised to find out how many mistakes the previous tax prepare made and credits they missed.  Working with Ken was effortless and enjoyable. Ken educated me as to what should and need to be doing for the future as well as finding more dollars that should be refunded back to me. Thank you Ken.  I will continue to use Ken and will refer Ken Mar Tax to all my friends and family

Ken prepared our 2012 taxes, as he did in 2011.  We have him do these taxes because my husband’s income is reported via a 1099R which is a little more difficult than a standard tax filing.  Ken did an excellent job!  He found that my husbands employer had incorrectly filed his 1099R for 2012, as well as 2011.  Ken contacted the employer personally to obtain all the details so that our taxes could be filed correctly.  By his willingness to go the extra yard and dig deeper into the situation, we were able to get tax credits on State and Federal taxes for 2011, plus obtained a nice refund from the federal filing for 2012, as well as our RITA taxes.  Had we done these taxes we would most likely still be trying to figure out what to do! He followed up with us to ensure our refunds were being processed correctly and even reached out to the RITA agency to ensure we would get our overpayment refunded rather than credited to next year’s return.  Amazing that service like this still exists!

Ken-Mar tax has been preparing my taxes for my personal accounts and my businesses for several years now. At all times he has been professional, courteous and thorough on every occasion. I had a tax issue with the IRS prior to using Ken-Mar and my previous tax preparer could not resolve the issue. Ken was able to correct the situation immediately and from that moment on he has been preparing all of my taxes.

Back Taxes and Tax Resolution Services

We know before you engage with a tax attorney or tax consultant you want to read some reviews. Unfortunately many of our customers with back taxes, tax levies and unpaid IRS bills don’t seem to be reviewing us online. It may be because they’re apprehensive to have a review mentioning an IRS debt link back to their personal accounts. Fortunately we have had a few reviews on Angie’s List that mention the back tax services we perform. And should you come into our office for tax resolution or back tax relief, please send us a review through our contact us form and we will surely keep it anonymous.

Ken-Mar Tax Provided Tax Services and IRS Support in 2015 that went surprisingly well. We got a letter from the IRS stating we owed them some back taxes.  Ken was able to speak with my wife’s attorney and the IRS and was able to resolved the issue in a very favorable manner.  Ken doesn’t just file your taxes, he supports you and backs you up.  He also does a great job at getting the maximum tax refund for us.  He is an enrolled agent, too – which helps when dealing with the IRS.  We have used him for the past 10 years and will continue to use him in the future.

Ken helped us with an identity fraud issue with our federal return.  He also helped with a RITA situation.  Ken-Mar Tax helped us with the right forms to fill out and send in for the identity fraud issue and Ken himself  called the state tax bureau and talked with them about it as well.  In addition, Ken called RITA to help us work out a workable payment plan.

I used Ken-Mar Tax for services including: Correct past tax returns, Complete current tax returns and help resolve tax issues.  I would recommend Ken-Mar Tax for being fast, fair and efficient. Ken dealt with all of the tax issues head-on and dealt directly with the IRS. He was able to negotiate time to put together corrected returns and move to resolution. He was very honest and direct without charging me an arm and a leg. I was very happy with the value and the results.  I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Ken for any tax needs.
