Wins IRS Offer in Compromise By Janet

Ruth Ann is one of the hardest-working, tenacious and patient people I have ever had the good-fortune to know. I am sure her success in winning an Offer for me would never have happened without her astute assessment of my case. I cannot say enough about her level of honesty, methodical style and close attention to detail. We always worked as a team to help keep costs down, and she kept me informed of the balance on her services at all times. I am grateful for her great skills and supportive nature throughout a difficult process!

Critical Resource for My Business by Larry

As a small business owner with engineering experience but no accounting expertise, having external professional support is essential. I have been working with Ruth Ann Michnay for 8 years and rely on her character, knowledge, patience and attention to detail to stay in compliance with constantly changing, complex tax laws. She is willing to do all financial tasks that arise or to train me in areas that I can handle myself in order to save money. She is a critical resource for my business.

Finds Additional Refund by Emily

Ruth Ann has done my taxes for about 10 years. When I got married a few years ago, my husband insisted on doing our taxes, as he had done his own for about 15 years - I convinced him to let Ruth Ann do them too, and she found about $300 more in refunds than my husband had. We have continued to use her every year!

Exceeds Expectations! By Kyle

Ruth Ann Michnay is trustworthy, efficient, well-organized, and has exercised confidentiality, regarding the individual client's tax preparation and tax filings. She was referred to me by an established accounting firm (which has been in practice over three decades) and has met my expectations, having demonstrated professionalism, an excellent command of the intricacies of State and Federal annual legal changes, a sensitivity to my needs, and a personable manner in communications. I especially appreciate that she has taken the initiative in giving annual, first quarter client updates, to facilitate the detailed processes of preparation and filing.

Helpful, Patient, Thorough by belle372

We have been doing business with Ruth Ann for over two years. We couldn't be happier with her services. She is helpful, patient, thorough, and extremely knowledgeable. She is a small firm, but that is one of the things that we really enjoy about working with her; she has taken the time to get to know our business, as well as our specific and individual needs. Ruth Ann takes the time to answer our questions and makes sure we have a complete understanding of the answers she gives. I have recommended her to others, and would continue to do so in the future.
